This week we were very lucky to have a Dave Kay visit us at the Vocational Centre to talk about his job as a Test pilot. He showed us pictures of the different types of aircraft he flies in and talked about what it is like to fly in the planes and helicopters. He also brought in some of the safety equipment they have to wear when flying, as well as a flight suit and helmet. Some of us volunteered to try on the flight outfit and were surprised at how heavy the helmet was to wear. It was a really interesting talk and we enjoyed finding out about a different kind of job.
Many thanks to Dave for spending the afternoon with us.
