Junior Members' Training Program
A very successful training program for students from Years 7,8 & 9 from local high schools ran for two months in the first half of 2017.
Friday 30 June was the final night, which took the form of a BBQ for the participants and their families, then each of the kids presented a project they'd been working on to the assembled company, and were then themselves presented with a Cerificate of Achievement.
The aim of the course was to foster and encourage young people with an interest in some aspect of aviation, by providing them with a basic overview of some aviation topics. These included:
- Operation of Controls
- Forces on an aircraft in flight
- Airport safety
- Engines and systems
- Navigation Techniques
- Time and Time Zones
- Meteorology and Cloud types
The group also enjoyed a visit to the new TOLL rescue base, took a flight in a Jabiru aircraft and had some fun with some outdoor navigation exercises.
