Discover flight with our fun and educational Aviation Primary School Tours!
Primary School Tours at the Aerospace Discovery Centre are a great idea for your school day out.
Aviation is a fascinating subject and children are especially curious about the wonders of flight. Our primary school tours are designed to introduce school students to the science behind flight in a fun ‘hands on, minds on’ format. Student’s will learn about the four forces acting on an airplane in flight and how airplanes are flown and controlled.
Now it’s time to test those theories during a simulated flying lesson with a real world pilot. Teams of two students work together to navigate a course around New York, with a few loop-the-loops and rolls along the way. This is a really big hit with both boys and girls and keeps them talking for a long time afterwards!
Then, take a guided tour of our Aviation Visitor Centre to see a cool collection of exhibits including an Aircraft Carrier Jet, a Spitfire Cockpit, Landing Gear, Jet Engines Models, Memorabilia and lots more.
