About Northbrook College

Northbrook College was created when the famous Chelsea College of Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering (founded in 1924) merged with Worthing College of Technology.

To support the theoretical and practical applications of the aeronautical courses, the college owns five aircraft as well as many different examples of engine types and aircraft components.
