We were lucky enough to get to visit Casement Aerodrome in Baldonnell. There, we met Captain Firman who brought us on a fantastic tour behind the scenes. We definitely have some Maverick's in the making after this trip!!!

We got to explore various helicopters. We were allowed to sit inside and try on the night visit goggles too. They even showed us some of the weapons which can be carried on board.

Then we got to see inside the cockpit of a PC-9 plane. We saw the ammunition it can carry and how the controls work. From here, we moved to see the PC-12 which can carry passengers/ bring patients to hospital or perform surveillance missions. Captain Firman brought us inside and explained how everything works.

We even got to visit the birds of prey in the aerodrome. We got to hold a Falcon and a Harris Hawk and learned all about how they are trained to keep the aircraft safe from bird strikes.

As we were leaving we got to hear the roar of the engines of the CASA and spotted the Garda helicopter landing.

A huge thank you to Captain Firman and all of the pilots who showed us around today and of course to Ms. Doyle who helped make it all happen.
