Loganair to feature in new BBC television series

A 10-part BBC series launching next Monday will feature the lives of younger members of staff at Loganair, the UK’s largest regional airline.

Loganair provided access to camera crews over several months, filming in places as far afield as Shetland and Heathrow.

The show features 11 of the airline’s team, ranging from captain to aircraft engineer, balanced their personal lives with a busy summer at work.

Those on the programme include the UK’s first commercial pilot living with HIV; the UK’s youngest captain from Edinburgh; and an engineer who converts a plane into an air ambulance in time for a patient to be transported the following morning.

Jonathan Hinkles, chief executive of Loganair, said: “During a busy summer, when the entire aviation industry was faced with changing Covid restrictions and huge challenges, it was a daunting prospect to invite a TV crew behind the scenes of our airline.

“For this to work in the best possible way, we gave the camera crews full access to behind-the-scenes life at Loganair, and I’m truly grateful to the stars of the show for volunteering to share their personal and truly inspiring stories as part of the journey.

“It is our hope that it provides fantastic encouragement and insight for those contemplating a career in aviation – whether in the air or on the ground – and that we are able to continue welcoming a diverse range of new recruits into the Loganair family.”

The first episode of Sky High Club will be on BBC Scotland next Monday (August 15). BBC Three launches the series nationally on 18 August 18, and all 10 episodes will be available through BBC iPlayer from August 15.
