Southampton Airport (SOU) has launched a competition calling on local schools to design the aircraft of the future.
Students are encouraged to use their imagination and sketch an aircraft that would one day roam the skies, with the best design being 3D printed at the airport.
The competition will form a part of the ‘Spirit of SOU’ event that will celebrate the past and the future of Southampton Airport during the week beginning July 8. The event will be packed with engaging activities throughout, from a Spitfire flight and airport exhibition to a flight simulator and choir performance.
Neil Garwood, managing director of Southampton Airport, said, “We are always on the lookout for innovative ideas, and it felt like a perfect match to get students involved in shaping the future of the aviation industry. We are looking forward to seeing interesting designs that hopefully one day will fly out of our airport.”
