Nicki Austin

Aviation Course Leader

I began my flying career working as a cabin crew member with Virgin Atlantic – based in London Heathrow and Gatwick Airports – before moving up the ranks to serve passengers in the upper-class cabin.

After relocating to Leeds, I took on the role of Inflight Cabin Supervisor with Jet2. I then progressed in my flying career by moving to private aviation in the Middle East, where I worked as a cabin crew member for the Royal family of Qatar under Qatar Amiri.

I eventually returned to the UK to pass on my 12 years’ flying experience, as well as my passion for the aviation industry, to students at Leeds City College!
