We host many special events at the Pearson Field Education Center. From Open Cockpit Day in May to Halloween Hangar in October, there are fun activities for everyone to enjoy. Be sure to check the calendar for the latest special event updates, and spend time with the family at Vancouver’s hometown airport.
For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.

Through aviation, we inspire youth to pursue education and careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields, while instilling an appreciation for the people, events, and innovations of historic Pearson Field.
- We envision PFEC as a nationally recognized model for experiential STEM based K-12 education, uniquely combined with the appreciation and inspiration provided by integrating the rich history of Pearson Field and the people and events that came before us.
- We envision PFEC and historic Pearson Field as the entry point to a thriving STEM/aviation cluster within a 100-mile radius of the oldest continuously operating airfield in the Pacific Northwest and one of the two oldest continuously operating airfields in the country. This includes locally available access to education at all levels, a healthy and growing family of STEM/aviation related businesses and the jobs they offer.
