Innovations in Flight Family Day

The theme of this program is to give museum visitors the opportunity to learn about the innovations in aircraft design and what it takes to become a pilot by talking with pilots about how they learned to fly, what they fly, and how they use their aircraft.  The day is designed to inform visitors of the opportunities in both military and civilian aviation.  Visitors have the opportunity to talk with a diversified group of pilots to see different types of aircraft.  This year we are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Program.

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that support the International Space Station (ISS).  In the United States, sponsors are the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT), the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the ISS National Lab and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The primary goal of ARISS is to promote exploration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew members aboard the ISS and students in classrooms or public forms. Before and during these radio contacts, students, educators, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies, and amateur radio. For more information, see www.ariss.org.


Thank you & 73,
