JET attend Cosford Airshow ahead of launch of seventh JET region

Staff from JET attended the Cosford Airshow on Sunday 11th June ahead of the launch of our seventh region – West Midlands – in September 2017, which will be centred on RAF Cosford. It was a fantastic day to showcase the Royal Air Force at its very best and blessed with sunshine and enthusiastic crowds.

The base at RAF Cosford offers enormous capacity and potential for JET Blue Skies programmes which focus on aviation, engineering and science. With the No 1 School of Technical Training, its Radio School, and its Aerosystems Engineering and Management Training School, it is well equipped to contribute STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) activities to JET’s sessions.

Our CEO Dr Emma Egging said “JET is extremely proud and fortunate to be able to enter into partnership with RAF Cosford. The skill, expertise and enthusiasm of the staff will enable us to provide high quality inspirational learning experiences for local students. Launching our seventh region here at Cosford puts us on track to be working in nine regions, and offering life changing opportunities to 10,000 young people a year by 2020.”

Thank you to everyone who came and supported us. We look forward to being at the Cosford Airshow again in 2018.
