  • Are you ready for the excitement of airplanes flying in and out of one of the oldest operating airfields in the United States? Ever wonder what is it like to sit at the controls of a North American T-28? Do you think you have what it takes to pilot an historic airplane in our new Flight Simulator Lab and try your hand at landing on Pearson Field? If you answered yes, then it is time to come out to Pearson Air Museum and participate in our Open Cockpit Day. You will have the opportunity to view our incredible collection of historic aircraft and climb into the cockpit of selected specialty airplanes and get a pilot’s perspective from the controls. If the weather cooperates, volunteer pilots from EAA Chapter 105, will offer free airplane rides to youth ages 8 through 17 with written permission from parents/guardians. Flights are scheduled on a first come, first served basis so youth and parents should arrive early to register children for a free airplane ride.
