Congratulations Cardiff!

What a weekend we had at Cardiff Aviation Training last weekend! Not only did we have airline crew training, but we also had front row seats to see Real Madrid and Juventus arrive at Cardiff Airport for the Champions League!

It was an incredible weekend in Cardiff as thousand flocked to the city to watch the game and even with the heightened security around Cardiff, the atmosphere was still fantastic.

We wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate our neighbours Cardiff Airport as well as Cardiff as a whole for organising and managing such a high-profile event with such success. The students were suitably impressed with how smoothly everything was organised with no disruption for the students.

Congrats Cardiff!
