Following the success of 2017, The British Aviation Experience is in its second year and we are expecting it to be a very exciting time for young kids that want to explore what it is like to work in the aviation industry.
Last year, students from all over the globe met pilots, engineers and other aviation professionals, where these industry experts were able to answer questions and ultimately inspire the group. Brookfield expects that many of the students will follow their dream of being a pilot or engineer. With the knowledge and experience of many industry experts, the British Aviation Experience will help encourage and excite the youth into chasing their dream of an aviation career.
Students attending the programme will experience many aspects of life in the aviation industry, including flying lessons on light aircraft, Boeing 747 simulator, and emergency training with British Airways. Students will also learn about the maintenance and engineering side of the industry by visiting maintenance facilities and attending talks with professionals. There will also be visits to aviation museums, an airline headquarters as well as some exciting recreational activities, visits to London and Cardiff. The students’ accommodation will be in Oxford convenient to Oxford Airport where the flying lessons will take place.
This is an excellent way to help young people to decide whether they would like a career in aviation and provides a wonderful experience for the participants. They will go home having gained valuable experience of many aspects of the industry, flying hours logged, and a broader outlook on life.
We currently have limited paces remaining on the two-week course from the 7th July – 21st July 2018. These places will not last long and we would encourage anyone interested in the programme to contact us to book your slot.
If you know of anyone between the ages of 14 – 18 that are enthusiastic about flying or the aviation industry as a whole, please let them know about the 2018 British Aviation Experience.
