Monday Night Outing – San Diego Air & Space Museum

Monday, October 7th, 6:00 – 9:30 pm

Cost: $90

Let’s Go Flying!  On Monday evening, we’ll transport you to the San Diego Air & Space Museum in historic Balboa Park for what is sure to be a memorable event.

Science, space and aviation history all unfold at the San Diego Air & Space Museum – California’s official air and space museum.  An affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, museum houses a collection of historic aircraft and spacecraft from all over the world, including a flight-worthy replica of Charles Lindbergh’s “Spirit of St. Louis,” the actual Apollo 9 Command Module, and the only real GPS satellite on display in the world. View artifacts from the Wright Brothers, Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Wally Schirra and other aviation and space pioneers!  

You will have the opportunity to visit the museum exhibits during a strolling  reception before sitting down to a buffet dinner in the Atrium with aircraft “flying” overhead.  The menu for the evening can be found here.  Be sure to allow time to test your hand at piloting your own aircraft in one of the MaxFlight simulators, or tour the workshop where aircraft are built and refurbished on-site.
