Open June 2018 – January 2019

Soar to new heights and discover the air above us! Students will have the opportunity to be inspired by all kinds of in-flight science! Learn how a wing is created and built. Explore real hands-on components of aviation equipment such as an airplane, a mash helicopter, a jet engine, and even NASA cargo! Students can get hands-on and push buttons and test flight controls to examine just how they work to guide an airplane. Watch a video of Flight History, step into a Hot Air Balloon basket, experiment with the force of the wind and how it affects flight. Fly to new heights with the Don Harrington Discovery Center and Aviation!

Aviation is produced and created by the Don Harrington Discovery Center, in conjunction with Amarillo College and Bell, and has been generously sponsored by Pete’s Car Smart KIA.
