6 lucky Venture scouts from all over Ireland were the surprise winners of a 30 minute flying lesson with AFTA.
Venture Scouts range from 15 to 17 years of age. The programme involves a wide variety of exciting and adventurous activities, where the Venture Scouts themselves are responsible for designing, planning and implementing their activities.
Venture Scouting involves meeting and interacting with Venture Scouts from all around the country. National Events such as Trizone, which the group were attending at the weekend in Cork, give Units the opportunity to test their skills to the limit while at the same time getting to hang out with new people of their own age.
The lucky winners of the 30 minute flying lesson pictured below were Arron Jackson, Alexander McConnell, Chloe Kelly, Emma Kenneally, Josh O’Callaghan and Megan Heffernan, with Senior Flight Instructors Cian Murray and Barry Twomey.
