London Biggin Hill Airport is seeking to attract new talent to the business aviation sector with plans to hold a “Futures Week” Feb. 14 to 18, 2022. The event will give 15 young people the chance to gain hands-on experience by exposing them to career opportunities such as engineering, flying, air traffic control, and ramp operations.

“We are delighted to be launching London Biggin Hill’s first-ever Futures Week, which will help support the aspirations of young people,” said Hannah Gray, the airport’s STEM ambassador. “As the [UK] capital’s preeminent business aviation airport and a leading center 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.”

The young people will have the chance to work with the airport’s own team, as well as with multiple businesses based at the facility. The opportunity is open to applicants aged 14 to 18, and candidates will be interviewed at the airport. More information is available online.
