A total of 38 Aviation students took to the skies and visited Ireland recently to learn from the professionals and see the sights.

The stu­dents began their jour­neys at East Mid­lands air­port, fly­ing in two groups to Dublin and then lis­ten­ing to guest speak­ers at Dublin air­port. Staff at Dublin air­port han­dle mil­lions of pas­sen­gers every year and deal with up to 740 aero­plane move­ments every day. The stu­dents got to find out about cur­rent avi­a­tion pro­ce­dures and pas­sen­ger flow at the busy airport.

Dur­ing the day they also got a whis­tle-stop tour of Dublin, to find out more about the city.

The high­light of my trip was going through the air­port and trav­el­ling on the air­craft. We got chance to go on the hop-on hop-off bus in Dublin to all the main attrac­tions. It was an amaz­ing trip and I enjoyed explor­ing a place I have nev­er been to before.

Trips like these allow our stu­dents to see some of the career oppor­tu­ni­ties that we have been explor­ing back at Col­lege, in real life. Being able to speak to indus­try pro­fes­sion­als in Dublin was so inspir­ing for them.
