AEP Airfield Operations
The subject of the latest AEP session was Airfield Operations. The group looked at Farnborough Airport and it's development. They discussed the services offered and watched a short film. They then looked at charts of the airport and placed symbols on the chart to represent the tower, windsocks and runways etc... They ended the session by designing their own airfields. They split into two groups and it was interesting to see how the two airfields differed. Lego models were used to represent all the airport buildings and they had to consider terrain and prevailing winds to place the runways in the best position. It was a very informative and fun session.
