On the 25th of April 2017, ASP hosted the Aviation Skills Partnership Manifesto Update VIP event at the House of Commons. The event, organised in association with Chloe Smith MP for Norwich North, was a re-affirmation of ASP’s commitment to nurturing the next generation of aviation professionals.

 

There were several speeches throughout the evening. Chloe Smith MP welcomed the assembled VIPs and gave her full political support to ASP and our goals. Simon Witts, ASP CEO, took the opportunity to celebrate the partnerships between the companies and organisations that contribute to ASP and the brand new International Aviation Academy – Norwich. Finally, Sir Christopher Coville, of the ASP Advisory Board, drew on his military experience to expand on the wider benefits that the ASP manifesto will have on the industry.
