Jack Wood has always had a keen interest in aircrafts, so when finishing school he researched the local colleges to see which college offered the best route into the aerospace industry.
Jack comments “It’s great that we have facilities such as the aircraft and simulators to work on; there’s no other local college that offers this and the teachers are the best I’ve ever had. They push you and guide you in the right direction, ensuring that you achieve the best you can. The tutors also give you great advice about the industry as they already have the experience.”
