High-flying travel and tourism learners from Tyneside took a trip to Stockport to dip into a specialist cabin crew course.

The 12 level three students ‘checked-in’ to a range of mock-up aircraft at Thomas Cook Airlines’ aviation centre.

Warick Stephenson, head of care, sport and leisure at TyneMet College, said: “These educational visits are invaluable. They introduce the students to ‘real life’ training exercises and give them an insight in to how the theory side of their teaching is put into place.”

The training covered manually closing aircraft doors, security and on-board first aid, including CPR and using a defibrillator.
