The first physical Cool Aeronautics of 2022 took place on the 25th March at Stansted Airport Aerozone. They have a dedicated flight viewing platform and lots of staff willing to speak with students about what they do and why it is important in the running of the airport. On our First event we got lucky and were joined by the Airport Fire Service, The Essex police service, Environmental officer and the Aircraft operations team. This is a lot of speakers for but we are so grateful that they were able to inform the students the variety of roles in the industry.
We had some aspiring pilots and firefighters and many or them were interested in the biodiversity and environmental factors surrounding the airport including the endangered newts and birds.
