I have an invitiation to the Boeing Chalet at this year's Paris Airshow. It says however that it is not a valid airshow pass. My complimentary invitation is valid on trade days only, between the 16 and 20 June. Tickets are only available for sale on public days, 15 and 21-22 June.
My question is will there be any flying displays on trade days? Will I have access to the airfield with my pass?

There are usually aircraft flying on trade days - sometimes at Paris and F'boro the trade-day flying is better than that on the public days, with aircraft flying for the benefit of customers which can't hang around for the weekend free-for-all.

Which public days would be better, the final weekend or the first day of the show? I would like to go this year, as I have never been to either Paris or Farnborough. Which days will have more flying, less people etc..?

Last year at Farnborough, in the non-public days, were the same (if not more) flying display (according to their website), and I supose that less people. The plublic days (ones I've been), were quite cramped, but ok... anyway I'd recomend to go in trade days, if you have the chance.

All the public days will be very crowded.
interesting demonstrations usually start in the afternoon.
If it is your first visit at Le Bourget, do not forget to have a look at the museum (especially the hall with the Concorde).
Very important: take public transportation to reach Le Bourget. the Easiest is the RER B train. (make sure you take one that stops at Le Bourget train station) In front of the station, you will find a special service to the airshow by bus.
