The Pensacola beach

Today we were taken to the Pensacola beach by the National Flight Academy. The bleach bone sand roasted our feet as we walked across it. We put on loads of sunscreen even though most of us got a little burnt. It was great fun! Thanks to all our new friends from NFA!

Meeting Delta Pilot Chris Lauden

Pilot Chris Lauden got us safely to Pensacola from Atlanta with Delta on an MD88. We really enjoyed the 40 minute trip!


Our trip so far

Stop Over In Atlanta.

On Friday the 3rd of August we all met up in terminal two of Dublin Airport at 6 o’clock in the morning. The teachers gathered everyone’s passport and then we got our boarding pass. After that we had to fill out an immigration form. Once we had done all that we were ready for security and immigration.
When we cleared all that we got a quick bite to eat and we were ready to board the plane. The flight was 8 hours long and it was Flight DL177. We were flying with delta airlines and we thank them for a comfortable flight.
