Summer is here and The Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum is giving you the opportunity to feel like a real pilot during their annual Open Cockpit Days. Bring the little ones — big kids are welcome too — to enjoy a free day out in the sun. Open cockpit days are only available during the summer months so make sure you stop by on the following days:
- June 22-23
- July 6-7, 20-21
- August 3-4, 17-18, 31
- September 1 – LABOR DAY WEEKEND
The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and it’s always free. It is located directly across the street from 8604 Miramar Road – you don't need to drive on base. For more information on the Flying Leathernecks visit http://www.flyingleathernecks.org.
