Norwich and the East has well-educated people who have, and continue to, aspire to achieve great things across many sectors. Norwich is a world-class city linked to the global community through one of the most connected regional airports in the world and it is part of a region that boasts one of the fastest growing regional economies in the UK.

Norwich and the East of the UK have a proud aviation heritage. For example, Norwich is the home of the first commercial metal-built aeroplane in the world and has a reputation for training some of the world’s best aviation engineers. Many other firsts and pioneering moves forward happened in this part of the country.

Building on that success, IAAN’s partnership with KLM UK Engineering, Norwich International Airport, key local and national employers, and other airport users, is key to our hands-on, practical, real-world approach to the full range of aviation training.

The support of Norfolk County Council, New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, Norwich City Council, Broadland District Council, and various MPs, has been instrumental in getting the academy project off the ground in record time.

The expertise, assistance, and support of Aviation Skills Partnership, NPS Group, WT Partnership, and RG Carter has enabled this project to reach fruition and to meet its full potential.

IAA-N operates in an area which understands the value of the UK aviation industry and that wants to invest in its future. IAA-N will put Norwich on the world aviation skills map, enabling local people to access national and international jobs, and enabling international students to access our world-class expertise.
