Kpong Airfield is a unique facility in West Africa and we are always pleased to share our passion for aviation with visitors. In order to ensure the highest quality of service for your visit, we ask that you prepare for your visit by reading and abiding by the guidelines below:
We want your experience to be as safe and educational for your students as possible. Therefore, we require an appointment be made by the organizing educators to come to the airfield at least two weeks prior to the date your school wishes to have students visit. We want to be able to ensure adequate time and availability to introduce you to our facility, thus both parties must have agreed upon the date. During this appointment, we will address the educational benefits, expectations, and anticipated outcomes of your pending visit and how to appropriately prepare your students.
Each site visit at our facility takes approximately 2 hours. During this time, we recommend that you make water or a hat available to yourself as our facilities are primarily outdoors and it is most likely to be hot. Please be advised that all visitors are required to remain within the demonstration areas during a presentation. Failure to do so may lead to your group being asked to leave. We must enforce our guidelines to ensure the highest level of safety and security.
Safety is of the utmost importance during a visit of any kind, not only when children are present. In order to protect all parties involved, we have established strict codes during visits which include visitors’ dress, shoes, and behavior. All codes and guidelines will be explained during the pre-visit at your school. We ask for your assistance in ensuring your own safety and that of those around you.
In order to cover our costs of your visit and prepare accordingly, we ask for a minimum contribution of US$250 per visit (up to 50 participants) which includes a snack for each participant during your time with us. Should you require additional refreshments, they are available at the airfield’s store for a modest fee. The financial contribution for your visit must be provided at least two (2) weeks prior to your visit to the airfield, at the latest at the time of the pre-visit teams briefing at the airfield.
Please note: We are glad to reschedule visits when we have availability. However, failure to attend a pre-visit appointment without appropriate notification (i.e. a member of your staff must call our airfield within 48 hours of your scheduled appointment), you will be charged an additional US$100. This may result in your school’s visit being postponed as a pre-visit is required at least two weeks before any school visits may occur. Additionally, failure to attend your designated school visit will result in a forfeit of your monies and refusal of future visits. Therefore, please be considerate and punctual when scheduling visits.
To request a pre-visit for your edu-team and to book a visit for your group, please call 028-501-8028 and state clearly, “I have read the website regarding educational visits and would like to arrange a pre-visit.”
Thank you for your assistance in providing a safe and educational environment!
