Kindergartners learn about aviation at airport field trip
Mineola kindergarten classes visited Beacon Aviation at the Wood County Airport Collins Field on April 8. The kids learned about how a plane flies, took pictures with the planes and drew some planes with chalk. Pictured are some of the kindergartners with one of Beacon’s planes. Beacon Aviation is a digital aerial mapping company that uses technology and airplanes to map airports, mines and other lands as well. Marty Gould with Beacon said they’re trying to follow in the footsteps of the late Wayne Collins, who founded the Wood County Airport. Collins brought students to the airport to teach them about aviation.
