Bring your group to spend the night under the wings of history!
We are accepting reservations for single group overnights with a maximum number of participants of 80 and a minimum of 20. With two hangars and lots of space, social distancing is easy. Activities are held in small groups in a rotating schedule.
Learn about the collection of vintage and historic warbirds, conduct a preflight inspection of a real plane, test your pilot skills in our flight simulators, and experience STEM-based concepts. Scouts BSA can complete the Aviation Merit Badge with additional activities. Cubs and Webelos will have lots of aviation fun and Girl Scout can work on badge activities like the Fling Flyer. Overnights can be customized for any type of group. And everyone sets up camp and has a night at the museum!
Please see below for program details.
