Aircraft chic

Creating a presentation suggesting how a company could re-use aircraft or parts of aircraft.

An airline company wants to improve on how they dispose of aircraft and have asked for your help. Can you create a presentation suggesting how they could re-use parts of aircraft being retired from their fleet?

In this activity learners will make use of the theme of the future of flight to create a presentation for the board of the company suggesting how they could re-use aircraft, or parts of aircraft, being retired from their fleet. They will research the different parts of an aircraft and existing products that make use of their old parts. They will use this information to create ideas for their own products.

You will need:

  • Internet access for research
  • Access to computers or tablets
  • Access to presentation software

And please do share your learning highlights and final creations with us on social media @IETeducation or send them via email to to be featured in our online gallery.
