This is the entrance to Play Air Gate A. The table on the left is where the gate attendant collects the tickets. The PVC pipe frame is the security check point.
We started the day by taking a poll to see how many kids had flown on an airplane. We talked about what we would need to pack to go on a trip, and where we would like to go.
The ground crew is in charge of directing the plane on the tarmac. The crew member wears an orange vest, sound proof headphones and goggles. We made wands (is that the right word?) from a big wrapping paper tube. Duct tape is my best friend.
How adorable is this?
The pilots use a fantastic homemade set of controls to imitate flying the plane. This pilot is making an announcement on the (hairdryer) microphone!
