120 3rd graders from Calabasas Elementary School came to WVI on 20 May on a field trip.
I got the thank you letters from the classes and have had a good time going
Your kids were very well behaved but more importantly were interested and asked
a lot of questions. It was my pleasure to let them in my plane and to talk to
them about flying and the airport. I am sure the other volunteers feel the
same. I hope to see them again around the airport, because airports are cool!
To all the volunteers ("airport people") who helped out:
Chris, the loudspeaker worked great, thanks!
Theresa, thanks for the great ideas, display in the terminal and putting up with
Rob, thanks for getting power up and being Rayvon's mechanic
John, thanks for the airplane to show and bringing a great friend who got 120
kids through map reading exercises
Dennis, thanks for showing your plane and let the kids climb in
Mary, thanks for leading the crowds out to the compass rose and back, did you
get your walk in?
Juan Carlos, thanks for the models and ground school help
Jim, thanks for the help on the ramp and ground schools
Abby, thanks for showing Theresa's airport info in the terminal
Rayvon, thanks for the great intro speech and showing your beautiful Bonanza.
I hope I didn't forget anyone.
It was a good day.
