Inspiration is key to creating the next generation of aviation professionals. Aviation is an awe-inspiring industry, and we use a wide range of technology and techniques to show young people how inspiring it is.

Inspiration is one of the reasons that we have a full-size aeroplane and Helicopter at the International Aviation Academy – Norwich (IAAN). Having a real-life, tangible, and operational aircraft to work on is truly inspiring. It captures the imagination of potential students and reminds those currently studying what they are working towards.

We are involved with inspiring outreach projects such as EngineeringUK’s ‘Tomorrow’s Engineers’ programme which is works with schools to promote the vital role of engineers and to inspire the next generation. We are currently working with them on their annual robotics challenge, as the 2018 event will be aviation themed.
