    Quote:
  • To deliver the first phase of XH558ís new life, we are working closely with the Aviation Skills Partnership (ASP) to develop plans for a Vulcan Aviation Academy & Heritage Centre at her home at Robin Hood Airport near Doncaster. The plan is supported by a core group of founding partners which includes Peel Airports Group, Doncaster College and University Centre, Skypeople, Aviation Shake, the Spirit of Goole Youth Build-a-Plane Project, and the Light Aircraft Association Educational Trust. The Academy will focus on six areas of aviation skills: piloting, air traffic controls, airport ground operations, aircraft operations, cabin crew and aviation engineering.
