Education

We have a wide range of resources and activities for children and young people at the Runway Visitor Park, tailored to all ages from Reception all the way up to Sixth Form.



 


Our Education Centre is based in a converted section of our Monarch Airlines DC10 aircraft, complete with seating, flight deck and audio-visual kit. It’s a unique learning environment with a genuine “onboard” feel.
