Cranfield has been at the forefront of aerospace technology for 70 years.

The Cranfield University education, research and consultancy is enhanced by world-class facilities including the National Flying Laboratory Centre (NFLC) – a unique national asset which provides a hands-on flying experience, along with flight deck simulators and industrial-scale gas turbine engine test facilities used for performance and diagnostic studies.

On Friday 9th July 2021 a Saab 340B G-NFLB landed at Cranfield Airport for the last stage of its modification by Cranfield Aerospace Solutions into a flying classroom and laboratory. The aircraft will provide an incredible flight test engineer experience and research platform for aerospace students from over 20 Universities.

The £3M project has been funded by Cranfield and many of the Universities that will benefit from it, as well as industrial partners and charitable trusts.
