Your tour will last for 2 hours.

Approximately 1 hour of the tour will be held in the cabin of our DC10 aircraft. Here the children will be involved in role play situations, exploring some of the many careers at the airport. We identify the various fundamental parts of an aircraft and look at some examples of different aircraft. The children will also have the opportunity to visit the flight deck, where they can sample the feeling of being a Pilot or Flight Engineer.

The remainder of the tour takes place mainly outside the Visitor Park. We will observe movements on the airfield and visit our own aircraft housed at the Park. A classroom session will also be included, where we will carry out an interactive airport related activity.

If your group are working on any specific topics please inform us and we will try to incorporate this into your tour.

Please let us know if you have wheelchair users or others with special needs in your group.

We have a separate resource available if the DC10 is not available or for children with limited mobility, which has been decorated with an aviation theme and we can run the role play here. However, this will not include the flight deck access.

The tour cost is £7.50 per child and for every five children that you bring, you will receive one adult place free. Additional adults are charged at £7.50 each.
