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.Chloe Robinson — Aviation student
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.Caroline Glorioso — Faculty Area Manager for Travel, Tourism and Aviation
