The Leading Edge

By empowering the next generation we have developed a unique industry wide initiative – The Leading Edge.

It is run by Leading Edge members for Leading Edge members. It complements the Air League Trust’s formal scholarships and bursaries programmes and acts as a wider network for people interested in flying, or wanting to pursue a career in aviation.

The Leading Edge is open to all members aged under 35, allowing them to meet like-minded individuals, together with industry leaders, at events, lectures, social gatherings and visits to various prestigious related venues.


As a group we are committed to raise the awareness of aviation and engineering in our young members and beyond. We do this through organising and offering a number of opportunities and events, helping to support the career aspirations and interests of the group and also have a lot of fun!

Insight into real life engineering, flying and aviation operations
Amazing Scholarship opportunities
Access to niche industry events, military and commercial site visits
Free careers advice & mentoring
Young members events – make new friends in the industry
Share ideas with like-minded people
Network with industry leaders and make contacts to support your future career

The Leading Edge is run by a voluntary panel of members who organise events and visits, encourage new membership to join and increase awareness of the Air League’s work, particularly the  scholarship programme.

We are keen for all Leading Edge members to get involved in organising events that they think would be of interest.

If you would like to find out more about the Leading Edge or wish to volunteer to get involved in the panel please contact the Air League Office.
