Sherburn Aero Club Visit

On our last night, Monday 13th July, we went on a visit to Sherburn Aero Club at Sherburn in Elmet.When we arrived, we met Richard, and we went inside and sat down. Richard then told us the rules; No Running, No touching anything, and there would be no flying tonight.

We then got the chance to sit 2 at a time, in the plane outside, playing with the joystick watching the flaps going up and down, and what all the switches and knobs do.

We then sat down outside the hanger and looked at the weather, and learnt how clouds form, and how they get full of ice, the darker they are, the more ice they have in them, and if they fly in to these, the wings would get ripped off.

Then it was time for the toilet before saying thank you to Richard for showing us around. and also thanks to Barry for organising it, and driving us there.
