Aerospace Engineering Diploma – a brand new airline qualification!


Four years of hard graft and studying have paid off for twenty-three young graduates; not only that, all twenty-three successful graduates have gone on to find full time employment.  Now, there can’t be many graduates that have undergone a course in engineering who can say the same!  But the course we’re talking about is not one you would expect...


Established just four years ago by Flybe, the only UK airline to sign up for the Government’s Skills Pledge in 2007, and their education partner, Exeter College, the Flybe Engineering Diploma/FdSc Aircraft Engineering qualification has generated twenty-three Licensed Aircraft Engineers who have received the official certification from the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority).  Sixteen of the newly-qualified engineers will commence employment with Flybe, whilst the remainder have been offered jobs with other aircraft engineering employers throughout the UK. 


The engineering programme, which combined study with hands-on experience, has been warmly received by all.  Following a visit to Flybe’s Training Academy, Vince Cable, Business Secretary, said, “I want to congratulate Flybe and their students who have become the first in the country to gain an aerospace engineering diploma.  Having recently witnessed, first hand, the excellent training facilities at Flybe, I know that they will have bright futures ahead of them.”  Cable went on to say, “The UK desperately needs more talent coming through to grow our manufacturing sector and engineering is a rewarding career, providing young people with the opportunity to work for exciting, high profile companies.”
