Explore the skies like a bona fide pilot at the Lone Star Flight Museum’s Aviation Learning Center at the Pilot Experience this Friday, August 10, 2018.

Aspiring and wannabe aviators can dive deep into the piloting experience. Attendees can plan their round-trip flight, file an FAA flight plan, and then pre-flight a real Mooney M20 Ovation aircraft.

After that, would-be pilots will settle into the museum’s flight simulators and hit the throttle. The sky’s the limit!

Pilots must be age 10 or over. Click here for more information or to order tickets.
