Biggin Hill recruitment drive

A new initiative, Unite to Inspire, to encourage young people to study science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects to prepare them to become the next generation of aviation professionals has been launched at Biggin Hill Airport.

It brings together the airport’s business community of 70 resident aviation companies including Bombardier, Textron Aviation, RAS Completions and helicopter specialist Castle Air to show how the studies can lead to stimulating jobs within aerospace.

Also included is the new on-site London Aerospace & Technology College, set to open in 2020, and scholarship programmes.

Bromley councillor Hannah Gray has been appointed STEM ambassador to head the initiative. She said: “It is vitally important we showcase the many career opportunities available at London Biggin Hill as our young people begin to plan their futures.

“This is one of the most exciting projects I have been asked to manage, and I look forward to introducing students to the varied career paths on offer at one of Europe’s fastest-growing business aviation airports.”
