Open Cockpit Day - 2018

Open Cockpit Day

Event Date: Saturday, 21 April 2018 at 10:00 a.m.
Location: Air Mobility Command Museum

The Air Mobility Command Museum is starting its 2018 Open Cockpit Day on Saturday, April 21. This event is repeated every third Saturday of the month through October.

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.

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, 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… )
