Open Cockpit Day

Event Date: Saturday, 18 June 2016 at 10:00 a.m.
Location: Air Mobility Command Museum
Address: 1301 Heritage Rd, Dover AFB, DE 19902

The Air Mobility Command Museum is starting its 2016 Open Cockpit Day on Saturday, March 19. This event is repeated every third Saturday of the month through November.

Open Cockpit Day provides the public full access to many of the museum’s aircraft from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. if weather permits and tour guides are available. Tour guides are stationed in the open aircraft to describe the history of the planes and their missions. They are often retired crew members of these airplanes so their descriptions are from personal experience and bring the aircraft to life for visitors.

For more information please email Mike Leister, Director. You may request a tour of an aircraft on a day other than Open Cockpit Day by emailing Paul George, Tour Scheduler. (Aircraft that may not be toured: A-26, B-17 (physically fit DVs only), C-45, CG-4A, HH-43, F-101, F-106, TG-4, BT-13, PT-17, and T-33)

Date Morning Afternoon
July 11-15 Open Open
July 25-29 Open Open
August 8-12 Open Open

The AMC Museum’s educational summer camp is for children interested in aeronautics and the U.S. Air Force. They will learn the history and science of flight, learn to fly in a simulator, and pre-flight an actual aircraft. They’ll also see what it’s like in a working air traffic control tower on base, get a weather briefing, and talk to a pilot and loadmaster. New this year—a digital scavenger hunt!

A unique feature of this summer camp is the option of a flight in a Dover AFB aero club plane around the base flight pattern for only $25.

Half-day classes are from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. for ages 9 to 11 and 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. for ages 12 to 15. Dover AFB Aero Club flights will be on Thursdays, weather permitting. Flights will take place on Fridays if necessary due to bad weather.

Cost is $100 for a week of half-day classes and $25 for the optional flight. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Classes will be cancelled if a minimum number of students have not registered. A full refund will be given if class is cancelled and the student cannot attend another. A refund will be given if flights must be cancelled for weather or other events beyond the AMC Museum’s control. If you must cancel we must receive 72 hours notice for a refund.
