The final day of Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) Connect – Farnborough Friday – is an exciting showcase of the very best in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and is designed to give students, apprentices, graduates and young professionals considering a career in aerospace unprecedented access to the industry.

As part of the AGP’s activities throughout FIA Connect, we collected a series of personal case studies from a variety of professionals from across the UK aerospace sector. These case studies will provide you with insight into their careers, the opportunities available within the sector, and some advice for those of you looking to enter it.
