Open Saturday

NOTE: Pearson Field Education Center’s Open Saturday is cancelled this Saturday (September 22) for our Let’s Take Flight! fundraiser. Our apologies for any inconvenience.
Support PFEC and join us for the Final Approach After Party! Tickets are just $25, participation in Let’s Take Flight! not required. Learn more.


Open every Saturday from 10am-5pm, 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.

Second Saturdays feature an aviation-themed presentation and a new STEM activity for kids to explore.

Open Saturday is free to the public. Experience aviation at the first airport in the Pacific Northwest, and the second oldest continuously operating airfield in the country.
