Students fly to Dubai for classroom in the sky

Luxury seaplane tour operator Seawings has started offering educational tours of Dubai from up in the air. The first-ever lesson was held on the 17th February and was attended by over 50 students. Pupils of the Al Khaleej National School took part in a 40 minute higher-learning class that offered a unique perspective on Dubai’s history, architecture, economy, and development.  The class was then followed by a 30 minute talk by educators, designed to provide the information necessary for the students to fully benefit from the unique tour. "It was a lot of fun. I never expected Dubai to look so different from the photographs and videos which we have seen in class. The best thing was I could sit next to the pilot," said Sahel, one of the students on the debut tour. The programme has been developed to aid geography students, but will also be beneficial to students studying subjects such as art and design, history and science. "We are delighted to make the inspiration and insight that comes from a Seawings flight accessible to students in Dubai. We have specially designed this Programme to combine curriculum relevant teaching with the thrill of a seaplane flight which will make for an unforgettable educational experience for each student," said Dr Nigel Rea, chief operating officer of Seawings. Students will get a chance to marvel at Dubai's breathtaking skyline and take part in a class that is bound to be hard to forget.  Independent education consultant Peter Milne, who assisted in design of the new programme, said that "there is so much diversity within the landscape and Dubai's coastline. It is a very different experience for the students." Image sources: 1 2
