Cotswold aviation company inspires Beavers
By Sarah Wood | 19th May 2023
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.
