From inspiring a new generation of aerospace pioneers to ensuring we are working with the people around us, HAV is committed to strong relationships.
Helping to build a more sustainable world is a long-term project. We have a responsibility to encourage future talent to consider the aerospace industry.
Making young people aware of the variety in engineering is an important part of ensuring our industry continues to develop solutions to the hardest challenges facing society. We are deeply committed to the mission of promoting STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) as a career path, and giving the next generation an insight into the work we do.
Our people regularly speak at both industry and educational events. These talks range from programme updates to more inspirational or historical topics. We are also involved in a number of programmes, including The Learning Partnership’s Navigate to the Line and the Schools Aerospace Challenge.
As often as possible, we offer work placements, internships, and apprenticeships. Three of our current members of staff began their HAV careers as apprentices. Providing young people with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience of working in a cutting-edge area of aerospace is important to us.
We recognise that we rely on the people around us. Respecting and engaging with that community is important and we strive to always be conscious of the needs of those closest to us.
We want to be one of the things that Bedford is proud of, and are working closely with the wider community and Bedford Council on a number of projects. These relationships become increasingly important as we move into production.
As HAV grows as a business, our community also continues to grow. Our Airlander Club has been one of the ways we have connected to the community around us, inviting people behind the doors of our operations, and has since become a global network of supporters.Join the Airlander club
We rely on a number of different relationships to deliver our mission, from industry partners, universities and technology pioneers to the local community who have welcomed us in. We are stronger together.
At HAV, we believe that we are a part of the solution through our products, the way we operate our business, and our relationship with our community.Sustainability
