London – 12th October 2021: London Biggin Hill Airport is announcing the launch of Futures Week, an exciting new programme designed to inspire and encourage young people interested in pursuing a career in the aviation industry.
Taking place from 14th – 18th February 2022, Futures Week will give 15 young people the opportunity to experience first-hand what it’s like to work within the aviation sector. It will showcase a variety of careers from engineering, piloting, air traffic control and ramp operations that are available at both London Biggin Hill Airport and within the many resident aerospace businesses based here.
Throughout the week, the students will receive hands-on experience, take part in immersive visits and go behind the scenes at the airport, as well as having the opportunity to talk to inspirational aviation professionals offering advice about different careers.
Hannah Gray, STEM Ambassador at London Biggin Hill Airport, says: “We are delighted to be launching London Biggin Hill Airport’s first ever Futures Week which will help support the aspirations of young people. As the capital’s pre-eminent business aviation airport and a leading centre for aviation technology and enterprise, it is important that we play our part in inspiring and helping them to become part of this exciting and varied industry.”
Futures Week is open to those aged between 14-18 years. Applications can be made through https://biggin-yourairport.co.uk/unite-to-inspire/ and successful applicants will be invited to attend an interview at the Airport.
