Join us for an exclusive and private tour of the Pima Air & Space Museum. After the tours, we will all enjoy a delicious buffet dinner in the Spirit of Freedom hangar. We also invite you to bring a guest, including work colleagues, spouses and significant others. We know you will be amazed at the Pima Air & Space Museum, one of the largest aviation museums in the world and the largest non-government-funded in the U.S. TripAdvisor ranks it in the Top 10% worldwide for excellent ratings. 

Jane Poytner, CEO of World View, will be our featured speaker.

Be sure to plan to arrive early if you would like to participate in the tour.       

Pima Air & Space Museum, operated by the not-for-profit Arizona Aerospace Foundation (AAF), is the largest privately funded aviation and aerospace museum in the world and the third largest aviation museum in the U.S. Established on May 8, 1976, the museum displays more than 300 of the most significant aircraft in the history of flight.  In addition, the museum features more than 125,000 artifacts including a moon rock and numerous exhibits in five hangars on over 80 acres. Be impressed by many all-time great aircraft: the SR-71 Blackbird (the world’s fastest spy plane); a B-29 Superfortress (the WWII bomber that flew higher, farther and faster plus carried more bombs); the world’s smallest bi-plane; the C-54 (the Berlin Airlift’s star flown by the famous “Candy Bomber”  Col. USAF (Ret.) Gail Halvorsen, a Tucson-area winter resident); plus planes used as renowned-contemporary-artists’ canvases, including Brazilian graffiti artist Nunca.
