Prepare for take-off, Flybe announced as Headline Sponsors for Big Bang South West 2019


CSW Group are delighted to announce Flybe as Headline Sponsor for the Big Bang South West Fair 2019, working in partnership with Devon County Council. This innovative science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) event, building on 9 years of continued success, will take place at Westpoint Exeter on Tuesday 25th June 2019.

Flybe will have a large presence on the show floor within the event, which provides a fantastic range of activities to engage and inspire the 6000 visiting students expected on the day. Engineers, pilots and cabin crew from Flybe will be on hand to talk to students and highlight the career opportunities available within the aviation industry.

Students can expect to have a go at flying a plane on their simulated flight activity, undertake an engineering challenge and experience a selection of aircraft maintenance based activities.

Speaking about this flagship event, Flybe’s CEO, Christine Oumieres-Widener said, “We are very happy to be the headline sponsor at the Big Bang event this year.  It will be a fantastic opportunity to reach out to many young potential future pilots and engineers.  At Flybe we strongly believe in inspiring young generations to pursue careers in aviation and the best way to do so, is to have them directly engage with our pilots and engineers who will be available at the stand to talk to them. Also, we have launched the Flyshe campaign which is designed to highlight the importance of addressing the huge talent shortage in aviation industry by inspiring young girls and women to consider roles that are traditionally male-associated. So I would like to use this opportunity to personally invite them to visit our stand and talk to us, as I am sure they will discover that there are no glass ceilings in the sky.”
