Students of all grade levels at Waynesboro High School (WHS) attended a field trip to Dynamic Aviation in Bridgewater, Virginia in April. This field trip was an informational event where students had the opportunity to learn about the various jobs within the aviation field.
Students learned about becoming an aviation technician, welder, sheet metal mechanic, logistics and of course, a pilot. They expressed awe as they moved through the stations throughout the day, participating in the hands-on activities.
“Many students in the Waynesboro community have never left the city limits of Waynesboro let alone fly in an airplane”.
From building their own miniature metal airplanes to steering a plane in the flight simulator, the Little Giants
of Waynesboro were seemingly captivated by the technology. Students were able to board the very first Air Force One airplane that transported President Eisenhower during his presidential term, use the computer-aided-design program to create virtual bolts—and best of all—many WHS students took their first flight.
Many students in the Waynesboro community have never left the city limits of Waynesboro let alone fly in an airplane. This field trip provided students with a taste of adventure and planted seeds of aspiration as they pursue their postsecondary goals.
As we flew over James Madison University, Mary Baldwin University, and Bridgewater College, the students of Waynesboro High School took a peek into their futures—literally, from a bird’s-eye view.
