The Final Approach is an aviation blog created and run by university students. We aim to share our perspectives on the industry we aspire to work in one day.

Coming from a range of different universities, courses and interests – our writing team focus on a wide variety of topics from airlines, airports and aircraft to sustainability, security and safety. Our goal is to engage industry professionals and stakeholders, and really spread a collective student voice on all things air transport.

As a group of students ourselves, we also are in a unique position to write about aviation studies and our university lives. If you’re interested in pilot training or starting an aviation-related university course, do check out our aviation studies articles and get in touch – we’ll help you find the right course, uni and school for you!

Your resident Plane-spotter anorak! I’ve been interested in aviation my whole life and it was instilled in me by my mum, an ex air hostess for BA CityFly. I am studying Airline and Airport Management and want to work in the route analysis/creation area of an airline.
