School children just love to visit different places…as their “Field Trips” with their teachers along to explain all of the new and different things – – in the specif place visiting – – as each business offers so much more – – than some others – – and “WOW” – “WHAT fun it is to go and visit the local AIRPORT!”
Each group of children get to sit on bails of hay – – set up in the trailer attached to the tractor – – which is used to care for the grounds – summer time all the grass needs to be cut – – and during the winter months … when it will snow – – all the run-ways need to be cleared – – so that the airplanes can take off and land – – but NOW… to make for a comfortable ride and trip for the children to see and visit all the various areas of the AIRPORT.
The children have a marvelous time getting an up close look at … and into some airplanes – – into hangars where the airplanes are kept – – and into the school room for and where the “Sky-Divers” learn the rules of – – “falling out of a perfectly good airplane” and be able to land on the ground… all without breaking their bones!
Some of the children that made the visit to the AIRPORT – – took home for their parents – special invitations – – that their child can come back in the FALL – for a special party for the children and their parents – – since some of the pilots would be offering FREE RIDES – – but parents had to go along – some children may or may not feel comfortable up in an airplane – and only the parents would be able to make that decision.
We also offered Pilot Training Lessons – – for those young people – as some wanted to start as soon as they could – – so as to be doing something that if they waited – – would be sidetracked – – and maybe lose the opportunity to their best dream – – and that is to “Fly up and above the Clouds” – – the best place to be!
Airport owner and manager – Al Aldrich – – also… – driver – tour guide – with all the answers – – and daughter, ALYSSA – in his arms – learning the ropes – – as good lessons that you learn early – – stay with you forever.
