Once the aircraft completes her tour at the end of this year, she will take centre stage in an education initiative that aims to inspire future aviators and engineers.

Dubbed the Vulcan Aviation Academy & Heritage Centre, the programme will focus on piloting, air traffic controls, airport ground operations, aircraft operations, cabin crew and aviation engineering.
