The UK aviation industry is the second largest in the world after the USA. Official statistics show an annual turnover of around £22 billion, and a 390,000-strong workforce, engaged in cutting-edge aircraft design, avionics, engineering, and military and civil aviation operations.
Aviation and aerospace will be pivotal in the UK job market in the coming decades, as commercial airlines expand their fleets to satisfy growing customer demand for global air travel, and advances continue apace in satellite, radar, spaceplane and military defence technology. Not surprisingly there’s a healthy demand for engineers, navigators, pilots, ground staff, aircraft designers, fabricators, stress testers and avionics experts. Industry bodies are working hard to provide the necessary training, apprenticeships and career development programmes to deliver and retain top aviation talent for future success. Companies contributing to this dynamic sector include Airbus UK, BAE Systems, Bombardier UK, Rolls-Royce, Thales UK, and AugustaWestland.
