Cotswold aviation company inspires Beavers
By Sarah Wood
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.
