Wings Over the Rockies Exploration of Flight Now Open at Centennial Airport
The Denver Metro Area’s most dynamic flight attraction is now open to the public.
Denver, CO – July 26, 2018 – With great enthusiasm, Wings Over the Rockies announces that Exploration of Flight, a unique to the nation attraction, is now open at Centennial Airport in Englewood, Colorado.
The 19,000 square foot Boeing Blue Sky Aviation Gallery is broken up into two experience arenas. The first floor will cover the “experience” of flight. Strap into a tumbling gyro chair to understand the effect of G-forces on your body, interact with a wind tunnel using items of your own design, navigate mountain passes, witness leading edge technologies and even feel the thrill of flight through virtual reality.
On the second level, visitors will understand the “sequence” of flight. From mission planning and career readiness to a full-fledged viewing lounge, guests will be able to witness the excitement and buzz of the second busiest general aviation airport in the United States. Guests can even don a headset to hear chatter from Centennial Tower, a direct line into the complicated, yet fascinating, world of aviation communication.
Along with the robust array of interactive exhibits, the Blue Sky Gallery will include incredible opportunities to discover flight first-hand. Sit in the cockpit of pilot-quality flight simulators, interact with the latest aviation technology and even experience flight itself through a partnership with Aspen Flying Club.
These experiences and more will be available on opening weekend and each weekend thereafter. The Gallery is open to the public each Friday and Saturday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Sunday from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM, beginning July 21st. The hangar is located at 13005 Wings Way, Englewood, CO 80112.
