The Pilot Experience

Join us weekends for a one-hour experience in the Aviation Learning Center to see if you have what it takes to become a pilot. Inspect a real Cirrus SR20 for safety, plot your course, and take off into the sky in our professional-grade simulators.

Ages 10 and up. Children 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult (if adult is just chaperoning and not participating, they do not need a ticket)

Sessions at 11 AM & 1 PM unless otherwise noted.

$15.00 per Connections participant. Get another $5 off by using the promo code “fly2020” during checkout!

Stay tuned for future dates!

Challenger Learning Center-Mission to Mars

Have you always wanted to experience life in the International Space Station? Or to be a geologist on the surface of Mars? You won't want to miss our Challenger learning Center experience "2019: To the Moon and Beyond"! Located on Phobos, your crew is being sent to Mars for a 1 week study of its surface. However, your mission is put into jeopardy when an asteroid is discovered that's on a collision course with Mars! All your communication and teamwork skills will be put to the test as you deal with this emergency and its aftermath.

Sponsored by Boeing, this simulated space exploration mission is available on select dates throughout the year.

Ages 11 and up. Children 14 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Adults also require a ticket (but also get to participate!)

Sessions are at 12:00 PM unless otherwise noted.

$10.00 per Connections member & adult

Stay tuned for future dates!

Please note: a minimum number of crew is required for each mission. Missions may be cancelled or rescheduled if minimums are not met.
