Work Experience

This week we had the pleasure of having students from Coolum State High School join us for their work Experience program.

So far they have experienced life up in the control tower with Naomi, They sat in on a “Performance and Loading” class at AFT Advanced Flight Theory with Nathan and Vanessa and we were fortunate to take a tour of the Airside Fire Station. They were able to go on an airside tour with Rodney the Safety Officer and today we have had a great morning with McDermott Aviation and Bonza. They have also helped out with some filing and shredding! A big thank you to you all for a wonderful experience with this weeks students.
