AVOLON AVIATION EXPERIENCE DAY
Our Aviation Experience Day brought transition year students to Weston Airport for an exciting day of learning and flying. We hope the experience will be the catalyst for them to consider the many opportunities there are in aviation.
“What would really excite us would be if in 10 years’ time one of these students had found the career of their dreams in aviation, and they were inspired by something that they had learnt at this event.” - Avolon Chief People Officer Ciara Ruane
