"It was great being at the Planes of Fame Air Museum yesterday. I'm so glad Sandy recruited me for the occasion. It was a worthwhile experience and I really enjoyed participating in the event. I must compliment you and all concerned on the extremely organized function. Enclosed are a couple photos of me wearing my 65-year old helmet, goggles and oxygen mask, which ended up like the paparazzi (taking pictures)."

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.
