Museum members, fly-in guests or guests who drive-up in a classic car will also receive free admission.
We will have a DJ playing some cool summer hits, face painting, craft stations, guided tours of the museum, static display of vintage aircraft, a special air show put on by our friends at Tiger Flight, and many other attractions!

This is a Wings & Wheels you do not want to miss!
The Latino Pilots Association (“LPA”) is a non-profit, volunteer organization comprised of professional pilots from different sectors of the aviation industry. Their goal is to lead by example, stay true to their core values, inspire, motivate and advise future generations of professional aviators. Through community outreach and with LPA member participation, they are a nationwide network of pilot mentors looking to give back to the Latino community, but not limited to any one particular demographic”.
