"I just wanted to express my thanks to you and the staff at Valle, AZ for making our visit very special and memorable... The bottom line is that Planes of Fame is more than the planes and the flying, it's the great people working for you that make it an experience my family and I want to repeat. We appreciate the work you have done over many years to preserve our aircraft heritage and I have to think the Good Lord has blessed Planes of Fame because He wants that too.

Educational Resources

As schools make changes in their instructional programs, community partners have a unique opportunity to extend learning beyond the classroom walls. By creating a project-based learning environment, the Aviation Discovery Program will provide resources that will require students to use content knowledge and incorporate skills to support college and career readiness. Provided below are resources that parents and educators can use to enhance a visit to the Planes of Fame Air Museum. These education resources can be prior to a visit to front load information for students or after a visit to our facility to apply the knowledge and skills acquired.

Common Core Alignment

The Planes of Fame Air Museum has a unique opportunity to extend learning beyond the classroom walls. By creating a project-based learning environment, the Aviation Discovery Program will provide lessons that require students to use content knowledge and incorporate skills to support college and career readiness.
