The students of Primary 3, 4, 5 were taken on an educational tour to the Ratmalana Air Force base, accompanied by their class and subject teachers.
The children were shown many aspects of Aviation, Defensive Aviation and models of planes, fighter planes and helicopters. They were also able to visit the hangers of planes and also saw parts of planes that had crashed or been damaged.
The highlight of this tour was the stimulated flight where the children were taken into a plane and the sounds and sights of a plane in a flight including takeoff and landing instructions were stimulated.
Next was the airport souvenir shop where the children and teachers enjoyed purchasing many souvenirs at a very reasonable price.
The staff of the air force was very kind. Courteous and helpful this trip was very educative to the students and staff members. It was an unforgettable experience for the Kids!
