Year 8 and 9 School Trip to Manchester Airport
The first hour of the tour will be held in the cabin of the DC10, here the children will be involved in role play, highlighting to them the types of jobs people have at the airport. We will also explain all about the aircraft that they are sitting on. The children will get to visit the flight deck of the DC10, where they will be shown some of the flight controls to help understand how they affect the operation of the aircraft.
The rest of the tour is outside and focuses on the aircraft that can be seen taking off and landing, in addition to any other vehicles moving around the runway. We will also talk about Manchester Airport itself and then turn our attention to our very own exciting aircraft, which are housed at Runway Visitor Park.
