Rose Marie Academy students and teachers had the unique opportunity to visit TAI (Thai Aviation Industries) at Bangkok’s Don Muang Airport on November 28. Our informative guide was our student Timing’s father, TAI instructor Khun Wasunthara Manklasavadi. It was a most exhilarating visit to a workplace not normally open to the public.
Khun Wasunthara gave us a fascinating illumination of their work maintaining aircraft of the Royal Thai Air Force, Air Asia, and other airlines as well. We gained a close-up understanding of jet engines, landing gear, and wing functions. The highlight of all was the opportunity to sit in the pilot’s seat in the nose of the Airbus 321 Neo! We are very grateful to TAI and to TAI instructor Khun Wasunthara for giving us this informative and exhilarating learning experience—an experience we will never forget.
