What is Project Slingshot?
Once complete, the aircraft will be used for further aircraft maintenance opportunities, air experience flights and the delivery of flying scholarships and bursaries provided by the Air League Trust. Over the lifetime of the project thousands of young people will benefit from the broad range of opportunities and careers pathways available.
Through a unique collaboration between UK based and international suppliers working directly with education providers and veteran volunteers, Project Slingshot delivers unrivalled intergenerational learning opportunities, benefitting all participants, build partners and suppliers.
Slingshot One, the pilot aircraft build of the programme is currently being assembled across two sites in the Midlands and is funded by the Department for Transport and Boeing UK.
