We had a very busy day Wednesday this week with a visit from students of Bucks University. We were privileged to welcome 30 students to the airport and FTA, one of our pilot training schools based here. The students are all interested in pursuing a career as a commercial pilot.
The day started with a presentation in our Grade II listed Terminal building. The students were then introduced to Operations Supervisor, Dan and FTA graduate Nidal who took them on a tour of the campus and onsite amenities.
Visits from Bucks University are an annual affair and they are an ideal follow up to the open day the University hosts each year, inviting ATOs from around the country to present to students on their aviation degree programmes. The number of students visiting from the university grows year on year which seems to indicate a growing interest in aviation across the UK.
Operations Supervisor, Dan stated that “the day was a great success and I am so pleased to see the growing number of interest from students who would like to get their pilot’s commercial license. Some have never been to Brighton City Airport before and said it was a lovely day out”.
