Hampshire & IOW Air Ambulance
Our Year 6 children were given the amazing treat of a flight simulator visit this half term. This was first prize in a raffle at last year’s Admin Officers Conference, which we were delighted to win! Fit with real controls and pedals, as in the real aircraft, the simulator allowed the children to take off and fly themselves across a digital model of Hampshire, spotting their own back garden on screen. The real challenge was landing the aircraft, which resulted in lots of laughter. The children also tried on equipment that is used by the flight crew. Throughout the experience, a HIOWAA staff member was on hand to help and educate the students about the real crew and aircraft.
