20 Years of RAeS Careers Support

Buckle up for the fifth issue of Career Flightpath, the careers advice and guidance magazine of the Royal Aeronautical Society. We hope you enjoy this edition which is packed with features to help guide you through opportunities in aerospace and aviation.

Our last issue celebrated the Society’s 150th anniversary. In 2017, we have celebrated another special landmark – 20 years since the RAeS launched its dedicated careers activities in 1997. We are very proud of this work which includes primary and secondary school outreach, careers advice for all ages, Careers in Aerospace LIVE, a dedicated website and, of course, this magazine. This work relies on a huge network of partners and volunteers and our thanks to all those supporters without whom these activities could not happen.

Another important anniversary is highlighted in this issue – the Centenary of the Royal Air Force in 2018. Our special feature highlights the vital role the RAF plays and the wide array of careers. We are also delighted that Dennis Muilenberg, CEO, Boeing, found the time to provide an inspirational insight into his career. Another honour has been meeting our cover star, Shaesta Waiz, who became a world record breaker in 2017 as the youngest female pilot to complete a solo round-the-world flight. From humble beginnings, Shaesta’s courage and determination is truly inspiring.

You will find more fantastic case studies and interviews throughout the magazine, including Nick Goss of GKN Aerospace, Will Avison of SSTL and Adele Gammarano of London Gatwick Airport. Our technology features focus on the impact of digital transformation on the sector as well as developments in electrical aircraft design. Jenny Body, first female President of the RAeS also talks to us about her career and passion to help improve diversity and inclusion in aerospace.

Finally, the value of networking is a recurring theme throughout the magazine. Getting involved in professional bodies like ours is a great way to learn more about the industry and develop your skills and contacts. We hope this issue inspires you to begin your aviation journey with us and we look forward to supporting you along the way.
