WIll Business Aviation disrupt traditional transport models?


Seamless travel

“The benefits offered by business aviation are substantial for improved transnational engagement and collaboration,” says Stacey Choi, a Cranfield University Graduate, and one of the 10 delegates who represented the Business Aviation industry at One Young World 2018.

My fascination for aviation dates back to when I was a child and has carried through my entire education; I recently graduated with an MSc. in Air Transport Management from Cranfield University. Because of the specificity of my degree, I had the privilege to attend numerous lectures by international industry professionals. These opportunities made me think about how aviation companies could further innovate and possibly even disrupt traditional transport models, like Uber did with taxi services.

I am excited to use what I’ve learned in school to help make business aviation even more efficient.

Business aviation was covered in various courses in my programme, which assisted my understanding of its complexity and increased my interest. If the sector could make business aviation even more visible through career fairs, courses and graduate programmes for students, I believe a greater number of young professionals would be interested in a full-time career in the industry. By committing to educate the next generation of employees and users, business aviation could continue to bridge Europe’s regions, attract more first-time users, and deliver the benefits of seamless travel in an increasingly complex mobility environment.
