Field Trip

Overview:
Springboard International Bilingual School is excited to announce a field trip to the China Aviation Museum on Friday November 28th, 2014. This is a great opportunity for your son or daughter. The museum occupies a former Chinese air base and has an impressive collection of Chinese military and civil aircraft as well as aviation related displays. Students will learn about over 200 different types of airplanes.

The museum has the largest collection of MIG’s in the world and two of Chairman Mao’s planes, plus precious cultural and world aviation relics. One of the most impressive aviation displays is housed in what used to be a hanger  that has been cut into and through a mountain. This Cavern Exhibition Hall is  situated to the south of the museum. In this hall, the exhibits range from ancient manned flight inventions to modern high-speed high-altitude fighter planes. As you walk through the airbase, you cannot miss the open-air exhibition area. Students will see cargo-transport planes, surface to air missiles, antiaircraft artillery, radar and helicopters. Lastly, all the way down to Hero Avenue, a sword sculpture comes into view. Behind the sculpture lies the Integrated Hall. This hall displays 28 practicalities of aircraft, over 550 models of various aircraft, missiles, antiaircraft artillery, and radar.Our students will have a fun day for sure, get plenty of exercise exploring the museum grounds, and receive a hands-on view of the airplanes.
