Our Commitment to You

The Air Zoo is committed to providing our guests with immersive and engaging experiences every day. Our mission is to provide a safe place to gather, to imagine, explore, discover and to be inspired. We understand the vital role organizations like ours play in getting a community back and thriving after a devastating event like the COVID-19 pandemic.  

In these unprecedented and challenging times, we are committed to fulfilling our mission in a manner that places the safety and well-being of our staff, volunteers and guests at highest priority. Under the guidance of the CDC and state and local governments we have developed the following policies and protocols. 

We welcome you and appreciate your support and your understanding as we navigate this new reality. Please, take a moment to review our new policies and procedures prior to your visit.



Limitless Adventures

We have two exciting centers on our campus that are open 360+ days a year and easily accessible by car or a 5-minute walk.

Air Zoo Flight Centers' Hours:

  • Mon* - Sat: 9am-5pm 
  • Sunday: noon - 5pm

*Mondays, from 9am-11am, are reserved for our Vulnerable Population Only!  

Limited Admission and Hours

Due to reduced capacity, and in an effort to reduce contact and reduce lines, visitors are encouraged to purchase admission in advance (members can reserve free admission online as well). To meet social distancing requirements, our shuttle will be out of service until further notice. 

Please note the following: masks are required for everyone age 2 and up while visiting; temperatures will be scanned upon entering; rides, simulators, and some hands-on interactives are inaccessible for your safety. Please review the Policies and Procedures prior to your visit as well.  We can't wait to see you at the Air Zoo! .
