Visit to RAF Cranwell

On 15th October a group of Year 10 and 11 students went to RAF Cranwell to hear a lecture by Philippa Davies, Performance engineer at Reaction Engines Ltd. Reaction Engines is a British company formed by three ex-Rolls-Royce engineers in the late 1980s to explore and develop a new form of aviation propulsion engine called the SABRE.  This engine combines the technologies of both the gas turbine and a rocket engine and once fully proven and certified will power the Skylon space aircraft. The talk was given the title of ‘Jet into Space’.

The students heard how the Skylon will be able to fly anywhere in the world within 4 hours. It will also be able to operate from runway to orbit and back.  This exciting development gave the students an insight as to what an engineer’s job is, and opened their eyes to the career opportunities in engineering that are available for them in the future.
