On 10 November, Peng Shi Jie, an aspiring pilot and Seedlings student of Banyan Tree Lijiang, had his first taste of being a pilot. Accompanied by his father and Banyan Tree Lijiang’s Assistant Learning Manager, Azure Dong, he was placed in business class to Beijing and Shanghai on a Hainan Airlines Boeing Dreamliner. He then had the chance to meet the Captain, visit the training centre of Hainan Airlines as well as the Air Traffic control centre in Beijing Capital Airport. It was an exciting experience for him and he thought it was a fantastic opportunity. He also let on that what he learnt during his trip was very exciting. The adventure was made possible by Canadian freelance documentary maker Ellen Douglas, Banyan Tree Lijiang and sponsored by China Global TV network and Hainan Airlines. What a marvellous experience!
