Competition Winners Fly to London
Air Astana has supported a group of Kazakhstani students and teachers taking special courses on aerospace technology at Cranfield University by providing them with free tickets to London. Before flying to Great Britain, the students visited the Air Astana stand at EXPO.
The students came from 16 different regions in the country and the selection process took place in Astana last June over a period of three days. The seminar agenda included lectures by Guy Gratton, Head of Airborne Science and Technology, Nick Lawson, a professor in Aerodynamics and Airborne Measurement, and many other world-famous lecturers and professionals from the aviation industry. Students had a flight in a wind tunnel and explored the Boeing 737-400 and the world’s largest hybrid aircraft, the Airlander 10. The programme was initiated by the Ministry of Justice RK, Samruk-kazyna Trust Social Development Foundation, Nazarbayev University and Air Astana.
