Soaring Eagles Outreach trip August 2010
On August 14, Pro Kids members had the amazing opportunity to visit Gillespie Field for a behind-the-scenes tour of the airfieldâ€™s operations. Members were welcomed up to the restricted-access Air Traffic Control tower. Then, the kids headed down to the San Diego Sheriffâ€™s Department A.S.T.R.I.A. Helicopter Hangar, where they were able to meet pilots, learn about law enforcement and rescue operations, and even sit in the helicopter cockpit! Finally, the kids participated in a fun workshop where they designed and built their own airplanes! Many thanks to Candace Covington and Soaring Eagles Outreach for this incredible day!
