Jodie Shrive

Over the last year, I have been studying to complete my Level 3 NVQ in Business Administration. The course has allowed me to expand on knowledge already obtained while studying for the Level 2 diploma and has given me a more thorough understanding of the key principles within the business environment. With this qualification, I was able to select modules that were most suited to my job role, whilst also being able to select units that would give me the opportunity to diverge into different areas of the business to get a wider understanding of the Aerodyn business. Next year I am hoping to continue with my studies and progress on to Level 4.

Aerodyn Ltd Apprentice News!

Aerodyn Ltd is proud of its apprentices and their continued success with their qualifications.  Read about 2 of our apprentices’ recent achievements and what they are moving on to next with their studies…

Abby Wagstaff & Abigail Davis

Abigail Davis

“Last semester, I completed my EAL Level 2 Diploma in Engineering Technology in conjunction with a Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Performing Engineering Operations. These qualifications took just under a year to obtain and have given me a strong foundation to continue to build my career at Aerodyn Ltd.  Throughout the duration of these courses, the turning and milling assignments interested me the most.  These were the most relevant aspects of the course to my job description and have in turn made me into a more capable and increasingly aware machinist.  The only particularly challenging part of the course was manually filing a datum square in fabrication and fitting tasks.  Often it took me more than one college session, it was infuriating but incredibly satisfying on completion.
This semester I am embarking on an Advanced Level 3 Diploma in Engineering (Mechanical Pathway) as well as starting my Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Performing Engineering Operations.  The most exciting aspect of this course is the prospect of learning about and operating CNC machinery, in particular learning about G code. Undertaking the course that supports my apprenticeship here at Aerodyn Ltd to me is a continued endeavour to progress my understanding and knowledge of manufacturing techniques.  It allows me to apply new found skills to my every day work and this gives me a great sense of fulfilment.”

Abby Wagstaff

“As part of my employment at Aerodyn Ltd, I was required to undertake qualifications relating to my role as an instrumentation technician.  I attended Learning Unlimited in Derby to complete a level 2 technical certificate in Engineering, alongside this I also completed an NVQ level 2 in Performing Engineering Operations.  The technical certificate took approximately 10 months to complete and my NVQ took approximately 8 months.  I enjoyed all aspects of the course but particularly the electrical and electronic units.  Myself and Abbie were set the task to assemble the circuit for a circumferential traverse and machine the enclosure as required to suit the layout of the circuit.  I found this task particularly rewarding as it was good to put the theory I had learnt into practice and make the traverse operate fully and safely.  Out of all the units I found the machining side to be most challenging as this is not something I do on a day to day basis.  However, using the machines at college and at work as part of my NVQ has built up my confidence and I feel I am more capable now when operating machinery.  I have just started a BTEC level 3 diploma in Engineering (Electrical Bias) and an NVQ in Electrical and Electronic Engineering level 3. These qualifications should take 2 years to complete.”

Aerodyn Exhibits at TETS at the Dayton Convention Center, 12-15th September, 2016

Dave Lawrence, President & Founder of Aerodyn Engineering Inc. and Ken Clodfelter, Executive VP of Aerodyn Engineering Inc. both attended the TETS convention at the Dayton Convention Center, 12-15th September 2016 on behalf of Aerodyn and hosted a stand in the exhibition hall.  This was a great opportunity to meet with customers in our US market and to show our new Circumferential Traverse and Slip Ring demo units.

There were a lot of interesting conversations, especially around our Testing Facility in Whitestown, Indiana and our expanded Manufacturing Capability at our HQ in Indianapolis.  People were especially interested to learn about our new Fidia Mill.

With the contacts made during the exhibition, we look forward to a busy 2017!

Aerodyn Exhbibits at the first ASME Turbo Expo held in Asia, June 2016

This is a year of firsts with ASME holding their first Turbo Expo in Asia, in Seoul, South Korea, but also this was the first year Aerodyn chose to exhibit at the ASME Turbo Expo.  This proved to be a great decision for both parties.  The expo was incredibly busy all week with people queuing at the Aerodyn stand each and every day!

Claire Gulliver (Marketing Manager), Mark Ferguson (Business Development Manager) and Chris Claypole (Managing Director) represented the global Aerodyn business that week.  There was a lot of interest in all our products and services and customers were excited to hear about our growing global presence, now having facilities in not only Indiana in the US and Derby in the UK, but also Florida in the US and Montreal in Canada.

At the expo we had a number of interesting discussions, which have since resulted in some exciting enquiries and opportunities.  We would like to thank everyone who took the time to visit the Aerodyn stand and we look forward to supporting both existing and new customers in the future.
