Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return

It’s has been an honour to be part of the Aerospace Gateway Schools program for over 10 years and working with significant aerospace industry personnel from organisations such as Boeing Defence, Qantas, Virgin Australia, GE Aviation, Airbus, QLD Government, just to name a few. The program continues to be of constant value and importance to the school and students as they transition into aerospace careers
The Aerospace Gateway to Industry Program allows GE Aviation to help shape and inspire the next generation of Aerospace workforce. This program has helped us engage local schools to find potential employees; provide both students and employees development opportunities; and promote GE Aviation’s business in both QLD and further abroad
Given the important role that aviation plays in our school, the GISP is vital. With the support of the Project team, we work with industry to ensure that we play our part in producing necessary skills and experiences to meet the growing demands that are required by our industry partners in terms of high quality students with necessary experiences.
Airbus in Australia is proud to work with schools and students in the local community through AGISP. Providing an opportunity of connecting our industry with the passion of the next generation reminds us of our own personal journey within the aerospace industry. We are proud to be supporting this program because it also invests in our industry’s future. We have had exceptional students visit Airbus locally through school tours and work experience, and it is an honour each year to present one of these engaged students with the Airbus Aerospace Systems Award.
Balmoral State High School is proud to be an Aerospace Gateway School. This partnership creates exciting opportunities for our students and teachers through engaging and innovative programs with direct pathways into the Aviation industry.
