ABOUT: Aviation Discovery Day

The Commemorative Air Force (CAF), the world’s largest flying museum, presents the annual CAF Wings Over Dallas WWII Airshow on October 25-27, 2019 at Dallas Executive Airport. The Education Department of the CAF will host a free experiential learning day on Friday, October 25, 2019! This opportunity will provide students of all ages a chance to engage in hands-on STEM and aviation-related activities while learning about World War II history in our new redesigned Aviation Discovery Zone.

Additionally, students will be able to hear first-hand accounts from World War II veterans, meet aviation enthusiasts, explore career opportunities, plus view the CAF Wings Over Dallas Airshow with its dramatic flying acts, reenactments and World War II aircraft of all types.

We are committed to providing cutting edge, in-depth educational experiences for area students and are excited to invite all school districts and home school programs to register for Aviation Discovery Day!
