Little Ones with Big Dreams Tour Port Harcourt Base
August 16, 2018
As the little ones from Weston Montessori Nursery and Primary School toured the Bristow Port Harcourt base and met the pilots and engineers who get to work with helicopters every day, their eyes widened and they peppered the staff with questions. The class toured the rotary- and fixed-wing terminal, went through the check-in process and had a safety demonstration on July 6, 2018, as part of the school's curriculum on transportation in the aviation industry.
Managing Pilot Dave Folorunso and Client Liason Officer Chile Nsirim coordinated the visit.
"This was the first time many of the children had the opportunity to be this close to a helicopter," said Chile. "They were so excited and asked lots of great questions. They were most excited to get their photo taken inside the aircraft.
"I saw some potential future pilots and engineers in the group," said Chile. "I think this experience sparked an interest that could last a lifetime!"
