What are you interested in in particular? I know a few people in various areas of the industry (and at various stages in training), so I might be able to help

Hey!
I’m interested in Aviation investigations and Aviation Lawyer in terms of Careers within Aviation.
Really appreciate if you could help! Thank you 😊

As an aviation lawyer, you'd be a lawyer first and an aviation specialist second. In order to practice, you'd need a law degree - it might be worth looking at course specifications for various universities to see if they have an aviation component.

I'm assuming by 'aviation investigations' you're thinking about accident investigation, which in the UK is done by the AAIB (Air Accidents Investigations Branch - part of the DfT). As an Operations Inspector, you'd need a full ATPL and a valid Class 1 medical, with experience of command. As an Engineering Inspector, you'd need a degree in Aeronautical Engineering and experience as an engineer with modern aircraft.

These career paths you're thinking of are very specialist, and lie at the intersection between two fields. They are probably some of the most interesting fields you could go into as a result, but if you're thinking of them, it's really worth thinking deeply into exactly what you're interested in. If you just like planes, chances are you're going to find air law boring - most trainee pilots hate it - but if you're really interested in how people interact with aircraft and the conflicts that can arise, air law fits the bill.

Thank you so much for that!

I’m really stuck between the two. But think I’m more driven to an air craft investigator than a lawyer so time will tell.

I got very good GCSE grades in school so I don’t think they would let me down. But for an air craft investigator are they any specific GCSE requirements?

Also, what are the core bits to learn when wanting to become an aircraft investigator eg plane structure etc which is obvious. Are they any other main bits?

Thank you ever so much.
