RAAF SaleOn the weekend, a team of 11 headed off to Sale (about 3 hours drive out of Melbourne). We arrived at the Royal Australian Air Force Base in the afternoon. After going through security checks, we were led to the Air Traffic Control School. We were introduced to Commander Peter Cooper who then led us through a tour of the school. We learnt about how courses are conducted at RAAF and what skill sets are most suited to Air Traffic Controllers (left-handers, music players and artists). We were then taken through various areas with simulations of control towers. We were pretty impressed with all the hardware until we were taken into the first of two 360 degree simulation rooms! The installation cost over $9 million! Later that night, we came back to the base to perform at the Officers Mess Ball, with a Chinese theme of course. Our lions posed for photos with all the Officers and their partners beforehand. We would like to thank Mandi Castle for booking us in the first place and Commander Peter Cooper for kindly giving us a very informative tour of some great equipment! We stayed overnight in Sale and did a little bit of sightseeing the next day before heading back to Melbourne. It was so funny that we were asked so many times by the locals what we were doing there. We must have looked out of place!!
