Stop press!

STOP PRESS: Another new development!!!!
As part of the Royal Aeronautical Scociety and Boeings investment into the BAP project, we have been assigned a representative to ensure that all is running smoothly on the build project, both here and in London. Martin Davey, our representative, noticed that even with both Tim (our Engineering Development Technician ) and myself, we could certainly use an extra pair of hands or two. After a short advert in the local Air Workers monthly flyer, a staggering 18 retired aeronautical engineers applied to volunteer their services to help out on a regular basis in school. After an initial phone conversation, four volunteers were selected and we met up with two of them last week. They have a range of fantastic skills which will benefit the project immensely from project planning to reporting, build schedule preparation to hands on fabrication advice. I would like to thank Martin and all the applicants for their interest and look forward to working closely with the selected volunteers over the life of the build next year.

Please keep up to date with the latest developments on the ‘Build A Plane Blog’ by following the link from the secondary schools website.

Hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all the build team.
