Training facility planned for London Biggin Hill


London Biggin Hill in the UK has teamed up with London South East Colleges to establish a world-class aviation training facility at the airport in the near future.

Plans for the London Aerospace & Technology College (LATC) were announced during an international lecture held at London Biggin Hill to mark the 150th anniversary of the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), in the presence of HRH Prince Michael of Kent, who was attending as patron of the British Business & General Aviation Association (BBGA), the UK’s national trade organization.

LATC will offer accreditation and professional qualifications for those wanting to advance in the aviation sector. With a global shortage of aero-engineers, the facility will help train mechanical, electronic and service engineers and technicians, with courses co-designed by key industry partners, including business aircraft manufacturers, leading to degree and higher-level apprenticeships.
