Hal was motivated to apply for this apprenticeship because of his passion for aviation and gained a first for his foundation degree from the University of the West of England and is now in his final year of a BSc in Aerospace Manufacturing Engineering.
Hal was announced as the winner of the Unilever Higher Apprentice of the Year category at the South West ceremony. He has a private pilot’s licence and has volunteered at the Royal International Air Tattoo at Fairford.
“It was a great experience and I was proud to represent Airbus. I’ve really enjoyed my apprenticeship and it has given me a flying start in an industry that I was already interested in. I’d recommend an apprenticeship to anyone looking to get a good footing in a new career.”
