Open Saturday

Open each Saturday from 10am-4pm, the Pearson Field Education Center is the ideal location for youth of all ages to experience STEM education through aviation. We feature a flight simulator lab, vertical wind table, glider building, historic airplanes and collections on display, and various educational programs.

 Children must be accompanied by an adult when attending Open Saturday.

We’ve made modifications to our facilities and operating procedures to help protect our visitors and staff. These include (but aren’t limited to):

  •  Requiring masks for unvaccinated visitors to PFEC, in accordance to the State Secretary of Health’s face covering order.
  •  Providing hand sanitizing stations throughout the facility
  •  Implementing enhanced cleaning protocols
  •  Adding signage to promote social distancing and hand washing
  •  Opening doors and windows to provide fresh air
