Young people interested in aviation as a career or hobby, schools, Scouts and families can attend Discover Your Future in Aviation from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 29 at Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor.
This is the fifth year for the special aviation day, which will feature hands-on workshops, a career fair, flight lab and interactive science exhibits. Guests can venture into the open cockpits of some of history’s greatest aircraft and learn to fly on the museum’s flight lab simulators.
Participants can enter to win aviation prizes and take photos with historical re-enactors portraying Amelia Earhart, Rosie the Riveter, a Zero pilot and others. Girl and Boy Scouts also can fulfill objectives for badge programs.
In celebration of Women’s History Month and the contribution of women in aviation, the museum will honor Capt. Sharyn Emminger Dey, the first female pilot to fly for Hawaiian Airlines, who captained the highly publicized flight of the first all-women flight crew of a United States scheduled air carrier. A special celebration of Emminger Dey’s career will take place at the event.
The event is free with regular museum admission and to museum members. For more information, visit http://www.PacificAviationMuseu m.org or call 441-1007.
