March-November—Every third Saturday

Open Cockpit Day

Event Date: Saturday, 20 May 2017 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 2017 Open Cockpit Day on Saturday, March 18. 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 Johnny Taylor, 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)

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, talk to a pilot and loadmaster, and go on 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. ( Continue Reading… )
