Bristol Airport

BUDDING young wannabe pilots were given the chance to explore Bristol Airport as part of their aviation school project.

More than 30 youngsters from Locking Primary School visited the airport and got a special tour of the terminal and were given an insight into what it is like to be a pilot.

And they impressed Ryanair pilot Jonathan Moss who tipped many of them to replace him in the cockpit one day.

He said: “I was delighted to be asked by the school to talk to the pupils. What a fantastic group of budding Ryanair pilots, they were bursting with enthusiasm and knowledge of the aviation world and are a credit to the school.”

Headteacher Joanne Jones thanked airport staff and said the children had learnt a lot from their trip.
