AerCap and Shannon Aviation Museum  have collaborated to offer a one-week intensive program designed for Transition Year (TY) students.

Aviation Academy is designed to attract teenagers who have a keen interest in an aviation career and gives them a real insight into the range of careers available.

Students will have the opportunity to learn about the physics of flight and some of the engineering that makes it possible!

During the week, students get to meet real role models working as pilots, engineers and air traffic controllers. They will also learn about  the Aircraft Leasing sector and the history of its beginnings right here in Shannon. There’s a vast range of careers in this area, Aercap,  kind sponsors for the week, will be there to talk about their diverse roles.

The week also includes a behind the scenes tour of  an aircraft engine repair facility, an maintenance training centre and a tour of a live aircraft maintenance hangar,  its a real eye opener for future engineers!
