Aviation Academy students will hear about the industry at first hand from experienced professionals in the field of Commercial Pilot, Aircraft Engineer, Aeronautical Engineer and Air Traffic Controller. Everyone gets to experience some real world ground school lessons and practical flight simulation exercises.
As part of Aviation Academy, students will have the opportunity to get behind the scenes at a live aircraft maintenance facility at Shannon Airport and have the chance to get behind the controls of a B737-b800 NG Flight Simulator with a licensed pilot.
This experience demonstrates how essential the STEM subjects, Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, are to the world of Aeronautics at every level.
