26 children from Heather Avenue Infant School in Hellesdon visited SaxonAir on the 3rd of February where they were shown around the facility and taught some basics on aviation.
‘Foxes class’ learned the process from check-in to take off and were shown around of SaxonAirs private jets and a Dan Copter helicopter. The children learnt lots about what goes on at the Business Aviation Centre, where the offshore aircraft go and everything that happens behind the scenes.
Teacher Wendy Howes said ‘The visit tied in with the class’s geography and citizenship curriculum, where they are learning about people, places and jobs in the world around them. The children really enjoyed it, they got a chance to do something that they would never normally do.’
A great time was had by all and rest assured when asked at the end of the visit who wanted to be a pilot when they grew up, all hands were up!
