The Head of the Ground Training School and some instructors welcomed us. Mr. Por, the Head of the Ground Training School gave us a brief note about the Flight School and the facilities available there in the campus. After the brief lecture, students were separated into 2 groups and each group was headed by a Pilot. they were taken to the Maintenance hanger, the ATC tower, the Apron and the Simulator. They explained patiently about the working procedure of all the areas. In the maintenance hanger, they could co-relate the topics which they have learnt in the Aircraft Structures subject. They were also able to learn much about the Aerodrome Subject.
