Cotswold aviation company inspires Beavers

Green aviation company, ZeroAvia, hosted two colonies of Beaver Scouts at its hangar at Cotswold Airport.

The company based in Kemble is close to releasing a product capable of flying medium-sized aircraft with no carbon emissions this decade.

But it was recently focused on helping two groups of 6 to 8-year-olds pass their Stage 1 Air Activities badge.

To pass their badges, the Beavers needed to:

  • Make and fly a paper aeroplane
  • Spell their name using the Phonetic Alphabet
  • Speak to someone who has flown lots of planes
  • Learn about and see an aeroplane up close

The Beavers were able to speak to ZeroAvia's system safety engineer, Rene Shaw - a former pilot, as well as check out the company's Dornier 228 aircraft.
