Open Cockpits at the Air Zoo!
Visit the Air Zoo each weekend in September (2021) for your chance to get up close and personal with some of your most beloved aircraft! Air Zoo guests will have the unique opportunity to view or sit* in the cockpits of some of the most famous aircraft in history! Don't miss this amazing chance to "climb behind the stick" and get a true "pilot's eye" view of history!
The Air Zoo's open cockpit experience is FREE with your paid admission and offers great photo opportunities.
*RESTRICTIONS: Due to the varying engineering and design elements, a weight restriction of 250 pounds is placed on each aircraft. Visitors must also have the ability to enter and exit the aircraft unassisted. Children wishing to sit in the aircraft must be supervised by their parents/guardians. Some cockpits are view only.
