A GROUP of Renfrew pupils had a taste of the high life at Glasgow Airport as they learned about career options in aviation.

Seven S6 students from Trinity High were given insight into Loganair’s operations across the UK, Ireland and Norway ranging from flight planning, cabin-crew, engineers and back office administration.

The day was arranged through the Skills Ambassador Program, a joint project between Renfrewshire Chamber and Renfrewshire Council.

The teenagers were treated to a return flight to Stornoway aboard a Saab 340 aircraft before a tour of the company’s engineering hanger to learn about maintenance and apprenticeship opportunities. 

Sam McKissock, head of cabin services at Loganair, said: “We work with a number of education providers to create pathways into the airline for young people and are always keen to hear from eager candidates.”

Chamber chief executive Bob Grant added: “The chance to find out more about a career in the aviation industry has been hugely beneficial to the young people from Trinity High. Thank you to chamber members Loganair and Matrix Uniforms for committing time and resources to the project.”
