Activities during the day
The children were split into six groups and took part in six different activities throughout the day at various locations around the station. In one activity the children were briefed by pilots of the Halton Aero and Microlight Clubs including Mike Russel and Dave Scott, on the principles of flight and given the opportunity to sit in a light aircraft as the pilot.
They also experienced a map reading activity using grid references and communicating using hand held radios and introduced to Morse Code under the guidance of the London & South East Air Training Corp Communications Officer, S/L Malcolm Wood and Halton-based Jon Savidge and Cpl Craig Turner and their colleagues.

With such a variety of activities throughout, it was a pleasure to see big smiles on the children’s faces throughout the day and receive such positive feedback!
