Amy’s Aviation

Join the adventure!

The Royal Aeronautical Society has worked with children’s radio station Fun Kids to produce three series with character Amy Aviation, named after British aviation pioneer, Amy Johnson

Amy Aviation is a young pilot and engineer who loves planes, space and everything to do with flying! Available to download for FREE, online as podcasts or as an animated series on YouTube, join Amy as she explores the world of aerospace and aviation. Amy learns how planes fly, how to make paper planes, how propellers work, visits air shows and much more. The Amy Aviation series are perfect for the classroom or at home and completely free to access. The Fun Kids website also has lots more activities including quizzes and competitions!

Paper Planes!

Send us pictures & videos of your flight!

Tweet it to us@RAeSCareers using the hashtag #CoolAeronautics

Cool Aeronautics has come to you! The Royal Aeronautical Society has created a number of paper plane templates that you can print off and try to build. Each design is different and some are a bit more trickier than others!

Have a go yourself and print off each design:

Typhoon – One of the most agile fighter jets in the world, careful when designing
the nose of the aircraft as this is one of its key features.
Comet – The de Havilland DH 106 Comet was the world’s first commercial jet
airliner.
Dart – The classic paper planes design, it has made may successful flights over the
years!
Rapier – The North American XF-108 Rapier was a proposed long-range, highspeed
interceptor aircraft.

Malaga Poster

What careers are available in aerospace?

Our ‘Malaga’ careers poster is inspired by many people’s first experience of flying, a short-haul trip to Southern Spain for a holiday. It’s hard to imagine just how many people have helped to make these flights happen which in turn leads to some fantastic potential jobs you might be interested in. The poster aims to illustrate some of the key roles which are involved in helping people fly to their holidays and use all kinds of skills.

British Airways School Packs

These are great for those studying Travel and Tourism, Business, IT, Geography etc, they support critical learning and thinking skills and are useful reference packs for anyone bringing the world of travel and aviation to life in the classroom.

British Airways have produced some fantastic Primary & Secondary Resource Packs. Enclosed in this pack are some ideas for lessons and resources that can be used in the classroom. The pack includes word searches, quizzes, classroom exercises and other activities. Photocopies can be made of all the resources. Children may enjoy writing their own names on their passports
and destinations on their tickets.

Primary Engineer

Breaking GOOD news!
In these unprecedented times and with school closures, we have looked at how we can help you, your children and your friends and their children with engaging, engineering focused opportunities.

‘If you were an engineer, what would you do?’ our annual competition asking pupils from 3-19 to identify a problem in the world and design a solution to it has been extended and we are offering pupils and parents the opportunity to register and enter individually. It also offers teachers the opportunity to register and use this as curriculum work to be undertaken  pupils at home or for any pupils who are still being taught in schools (children of key workers). We have online resources for you to access and we will be running more of our online interviews with engineering professionals for you to join.

To find out more follow this link. Teachers please feel free to share and to use as home learning activities.

Case Study – read Jack’s story

‘My name is Jack Hawkins, I’m an aircraft engineering apprentice with Ryanair, based at Stansted’.

‘Aviation has been a fascination to say the least from a very young age; my grandmother was an incredibly important figure in my life growing up and she lived just under the approach path to Duxford. I used to spend hours watching aircraft land and decided from young that aviation was the industry I wanted to work within. I became an air cadet aged 13 which really reinforced my motives and began volunteering at Bruntingthorpe working on ex RAF Blackburn Buccaneers – this was largely where my interest within aircraft maintenance was born, along with undertaking 2 weeks of work experience with the Royal Air Force at the age of 15’.
