Saltash.net was privileged to recently welcome First Officer Michaela Brown into school for the day. Invited on board were students across years 8, 10 and 11, who listened to interesting and exciting tales of how it feels to be in the driving seat of a 66 tonne machine tearing through the sky at 980 km/h!

Aspirations soared sky-high on the day, as students were encouraged to pursue their wildest dreams and explored the initial steps they need to take in order to achieve them. Budding pilots and eager Sixth Formers also took up the opportunity to speak to our high-flying guest and were left inspired and ready to work hard.

Michaela was delighted with the students’ interest in her work.

“It was a fantastic experience meeting the children from saltash.net and hearing what amazing ambitions they have for their future! I would encourage all of the children to follow their dreams and not be put off by how unrealistic it may seem at first,” she said.

We are very grateful for the time that Pilot Brown gave to visit saltash.net; she certainly left her mark on our students, it was a truly memorable day!
