Try Aviation Discovery Tour for an exciting family day out for older children!
If you are looking for an exciting family day out for older children, check out our fun and educational Aviation Discovery Tour. Learn how aircraft fly during a pre-flight ground school lesson, then test out those theories with a virtual flight in a high-performance aerobatic aircraft!
Suitable for the armchair pilot or complete novice. Our instructors are always close by!
The session starts with a ground school lesson where visitors learn about the basics of flight and how the aircraft is manoeuvred using the flight controls.
After a quick demonstration flight by your instructor, you will be ready to take to the virtual skies. You and your team member are in command of the Extra 300 aerobatic aircraft for an Air Race around New York! The mission is to find the Statue of Liberty and to fly under the Brooklyn Bridge, perform a loop for cruise ship passengers in the Hudson River, then buzz the Empire State Building and race back to JFK for your best landing!
It’s not all over then, we takean guided tour of Shannon Aviation Museum to learn more about the displays of aircraft, jet engines, landing gear, cockpits, including the iconic Spitfire, as well as a great collection of Model airplanes, artifacts, and memorabilia.
We also demonstrate a life vest to show the importance of attention to safety briefings before a flight. All visitors will also have the chance to get in costume and sit in a Cessna 337 aircraft for a very different family photo, so don’t forget your camera!
Groups: For thrilling days out for your Family Groups, Confirmations, Birthday Party, or Team building events, great packages are available for large groups.
