Open Cockpit Month

Dates: Fri Feb 1 - Thu Feb 28, 13

Time: All Day


'Look but don't touch' is usually the mantra of museums, but not at the Air Zoo! During the whole month of February, visitors will be able to experience aircraft from a different point of view-the cockpit!

Each weekday, one of three planes will be featured with an open cockpit. On the weekends, all three aircraft's cockpits will be open to the public. The open cockpit schedule is as follows:

  • North American AT-6 Texan

    Open Feb. 1 and 4-8

  • Boeing-Stearman N2S-5 Kaydet

    Open Feb. 11-15

  • Grumman FM-2 Wildcat

    Open Feb. 18-22 and 25-28

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.

The open cockpit experience is complimentary with the purchase of general admission ($10 per person).
