MTC apprentices reach for the skies2

High-flying apprentices studying at MTC Training – the training arm of the Manufacturing Technology Centre – are getting the chance to build major components for an airworthy light aircraft in an initiative to give them valuable manufacturing experience. The apprentice team is celebrating after completing the first stage of the project – a critical structure for the left wing. They now plan to have both left and right wing assemblies complete over the coming weeks, along with the aircraft’s fuel tanks. Supported by the Department for Transport, Project Slingshot will result in the manufacture of an airworthy Sling 2 aircraft.
