Topics covered include basic aerodynamics, the fundamentals of map reading, and the history of southern aviation. A team of military and civilian aviators head each session, establishing a military-style sense of structure and respect without the intimidation factor.

Groupon customers can enroll in one of the following Monday–Friday sessions: June 3–7, June 24–28, or July 22–26.

Southern Museum of Flight

The sleek, dark body of the A-12 Blackbird is invisible to radar detection, but that doesn’t stop it from attracting the attention of every visitor to the Southern Museum of Flight in sight. The retired bomber is just one of the aircrafts in the Southern Museum of Flight’s outdoor collection, and it gives visitors a glimpse of what’s to come. Stepping inside, you can almost hear the purring engines from the Korean War jet or 1920s Huff-Daland crop duster.

Not only does the museum bring high-flown feats of engineering artistry down to earth, it sets its impressive collection of airplanes into realistic dioramas. The exhibits, designed to give life to the history of southern aviation, sprawl across 75,000 square feet and includes photographs, models, original engines, and the tiny gnomes that power them. The Korean War Jets exhibit, for example, uses mannequins and a surprisingly realistic mock-up of Kimpo Air Force Base to tell the story of No Kum Sok, a North Korean lieutenant in the Air Force who defected.

So much to see! Loved being able to sit in a couple cockpits. This is a great place for airplane enthusiasts. Loved perusing through the Hall of Fame and learning more about Alabama's role in the history of flight. Disappointed in the outdoor exhibits and the fact that they don't have enough room to show their full collection, but that is more a function of the available space than anything else.
