Airport Adventures

Children listen to a story about a first trip to the airport and learn about the important jobs that people do in and around an aeroplane. They then go on board our Andover aircraft where they experience a simulated aircraft flight and even make an emergency jump out of the aircraft into the ‘ocean’. A fast-paced and interactive programme where children get to board a real aircraft.
