On Saturday, May 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the airspace around the museum fills with zipping, twirling, diving aircraft. Most of them are pint-sized and remote-controlled, but they'll be joined by the full-size plane of aerobat Carl Liepold.
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.”
“Check out the shop as well, handsome good stuff.”
