Designing the UK’s First Air & Space Training Institute for Lincoln College
A significant project that Stem is extremely excited to be a part of is the International Air & Space Training Institute (IASTI) development by Lincoln College. The state-of-the-art aviation training facility in Newark is due to be completed by September 2023.
The world class facility is part of an expansion plan for Lincoln College to provide training to young adults for various roles within the aviation and space industries along with associated infrastructure. The scheme is one of the flagship projects under the government’s Towns Fund programme, and the brand-new scheme will be a £10m campus.
It is anticipated that the proposals could form a model for future establishments of this kind in other areas across the UK. The scheme is a collaboration between Lincoln College Group, Aviation 360, Newark and Sherwood District Council and the Royal Air Force, with support from East Midlands Airport, Inzpire and the National Space Centre.
Tom Marsden, director of IASTI said: “As the UK’s first international air and space training institute, we’ll be providing extraordinary training to students across the region. As such, we’re very proud to gain the support of East Midlands Airport.”
Design inspiration for the facility was predominately influenced by historic aircraft hangers and the striking characteristics of plane tail fins. IASTI has been designed to accommodate the unique requirements of the college’s aviation and aerospace courses and features a large hangar bay housing the fuselage of a Boeing aircraft.
