Part of the San Carlos Airport Day Open House, the Hops & Props Beer Fest is celebrated on Saturday, May 31, from noon to 4 p.m. Revelers enjoy brews from Devil’s Canyon, Triple Voodoo, Uncommon Brewers, and 21st Amendment Brewery, as well as food from Sky Kitchen Restaurant. They also get to explore the museum, home to aircraft from as early as 1869, as well as a modern-day flight simulator. Music and entertainment will be provided by The Trims and LIVE 105 DJ Aaron Axelsen.
Hiller Aviation Museum
Helicopter pioneer Stanley Hiller Jr. founded the Hiller Aviation Museum with the future in mind, using history to inspire future generations to explore and create. He had firsthand proof of the innovative abilities of youth—his design for the first successful coaxial helicopter landed at age 19.
In the museum he established in 1998, 53,000 square feet of exhibits let visitors of all ages discover more than 40 aircraft without the dangers of encountering them in the wild. A narrated walking tour leads the way through them, tracing the history of flight from its humble beginnings in village jumping contests to today's supersonic jets. Fixed-wing and rotary aircraft designed by Hiller and others rest throughout the huge, bright space, while weekends beckon would-be pilots into a flight simulator equipped with huge monitors of bay views and realistic yokes, throttles, and pedals.

“Spent 2 hours there - I would recommend taking the simulated flight tour - it was a lot of fun and there are hands-on exhibits which I thoroughly enjoyed as an adult.”
“remember to spend enough time to go through each introduction of the plane”
