Now Boarding: Open Aircraft Days

The number 1 wish we hear from our visitors is that they would like to sit inside one of our historical aircraft. We listened, and now’s your chance! From June 24-September 24 we’ll have Open Aircraft Days on Saturdays and Sundays. We’ll also have knowledgeable staff and volunteers available to answer your questions. Trust us, you’re going to want to purchase a Museum membership so that you can come back for each plane!


We do have a few safety precautions to keep you and our artifacts safe. All aircraft entries require that you are wearing clean closed-toe shoes. Some of the aircraft will require hard-hats and/or gloves to enter (these will be provided to you).

Once you have 5 of the 9 circles stamped, you can enter to win a prize! Prizes will be drawn during the first week of October. We hope to see you soon, because we are Now Boarding at The Hangar Flight Museum!
