Welcome to your airport

London Biggin Hill Airport is so much more than a runway; we?re a growing hub of activity made up of a cluster of aviation, manufacturing and technology companies fuelling the local economy. Characterised by innovation and technological advancement, we?re a modern business airport proud of our heritage set within a thriving business community.

 

Future focused

Our ambition is to secure our future as a world class business aviation centre of excellence, investing in the airport estate and infrastructure to attract new jobs and provide an economic boost to the region.

 

Inspiring the next generation

To achieve these aspirations, we?ll need a local talent pool of highly educated aviation professionals, which is why we?re supporting the building of a training college on site at the airport in partnership with London South East Colleges. The London Aerospace and Technology College (LATC) will train the next generation of aerospace engineers to meet the high demand for skilled professionals.

 

Career opportunities and job creation on your doorstep

The UK aerospace industry is the largest in Europe and second only to the US, providing exciting career opportunities. Here at Biggin Hill, two thirds of employees at the airport live locally and it?s estimated that our growth plans will create a potential 2300 new jobs by 2030.

 

For the community

At the centre of the community for over a century, we regularly open the airport up to local events, most notably for the annual Festival of Flight Air Show. The hugely popular event is attended by over 30,000 people each year and attracts flying display teams from all over the world.

Colin Hitchins, Community Engagement Manager

 

Colin has worked at the airport for five years and has been running the Biggin Hill Air Show for even longer having orchestrated the world famous event 14 times. Besides directing the air show, his role is to promote the opportunities that the airport offers to the local community.

 

He is a local councillor and a trustee of the Biggin Hill Memorial Museum.

 

?I am passionate about aviation and excited by the growth opportunities in the sector and what that means for local business prosperity. We want to ensure we have quality employment in the local area for the next generation.?

Hannah Gray, STEM Ambassador

 

Hannah is the airport?s first ever STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) ambassador responsible for our school outreach programme designed to inspire the next generation of aviation professionals. Her role is to visit and host local schools to ensure today?s students are aware of the opportunities within the aviation sector.

 

Hannah is dedicated to supporting young people, demonstrated by her role as a local councillor sitting on the fostering and adoption panel for the London Borough of Bromley. As Deputy Mayor in 2016/17 she visited many of the schools in the borough.

 

?It?s important that we showcase the many career opportunities available at London Biggin Hill as our young people begin to plan their futures. This is one of the most exciting projects I have been asked to manage and the new Aerospace and Technology College will ensure those wishing to become engineers have the opportunity to do so at a thriving business aviation airport.?
