The first of several Aero Days! took take place on the 3rd of May at the English-speaking Kings College in Madrid. For one day, hundreds of students and teachers were dazzled by the fantastic discoveries of the Aeronautic world! On this event, students have met with Aeronautic Professionals in “speed-dating” sessions where all sort of questions have popped out of the youngsters minds, such “why did you choose to be an aeronautic engineer?” or “for how long did you have to study?”! During the afternoon, a wide set of workshops and activities were organized for all and some of the sessions included:

  • Sky highways: magic? How are they controlled?
  • Aircraft flight test – Flight simulators
  • Fly higher tutorial “Draw the airplane of the future!”
  • Move your body!
  • Aero-Trivial;

In the end of the day, prizes were awarded to the students with the best drawing! All in all the Aero Day! was a real success! Stimulating and nurturing a “Passion for Aerospace” on young Europeans was the motto of the day and for sure it was an unforgettable experience!
