Mavis, Fueling the troops

Where would we be without Mavis our wonderful cook – making delicious meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner for MoM staff and guests!

Good nutrition plays a critical part in maintaining our health, and we know it is a problem in many parts of the world including the USA, China and rural Ghana. When young girls join the AvTech Academy for their training, they get healthy meals, and we can already see improvements in their health within a few weeks. For pilots and engineers, who have to think clearly and make important decisions that can affect the lives of others, good nutrition is particularly important. Just as we need well-formulated and uncontaminated fuel for our aircraft, we have to to have good food including carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and minerals to ensure that our bodies and brains operate at peak performance. The girls are learning to tell others about the importance of good nutrition – food is medicine and they are ready to spread the news!

So, thank you Mavis for making sure that our fuel is always of the very best quality!
