Training

In view of our airfield’s rich history of training young people in aviation related skillsets, one of London Biggin Hill Airport’s keenest ambitions has been to establish a training college on site at the airport, which will also support our commitment to local job creation. To that end, we have partnered with London South East Colleges to facilitate their delivery of an aerospace and technology college campus.

 

The London Aerospace and Technology College (LATC) will be a brand new, state-of-the-art facility at Biggin Hill, training young people in aerospace engineering, aviation business, and an array of industry related skills. Courses for the aerospace engineering have already been launched at Bromley College, click here for more details
