One of the programs offered to students at Hallam Senior College is 'Aviation and Aerospace'.
The aim is to give our students an opportunity to take the first steps in their education and training towards a career within the aviation and aerospace industries. As part of that program, Year 11 Physics students spend a fair amount of time studying the principles of flight.
Following visits to John Holland Aviation Services and LTQ Engineering at Melbourne airport, the Navy landed one of their helicopters on our oval on Monday 24th October to show our Physics students how helicopters are able to lift gracefully into the air and how pilots can control their flight.

CPO Phil Crick, Leut Trine Themsen and S Leut James Williams of the Australian Navy did an outstanding job explaining various technical aspect and scientific principles, bringing real meaning into the theory that students have covered in class.
We feel very fortunate to have had the Navy join our industry friends such as the Australian National Aviation Museum, Tristar Aviation, John Holland Aviation Services and LTQ Engineering in making learning very exciting at Hallam.
