Open Saturday

Open Saturday

Open Saturday has been cancelled for the foreseeable future. While there are no known cases of COVID-19 at this time associated with Pearson Field Education Center or any of The Historic Trust’s sites, the decision to cancel this event was made out of an abundance of caution related to an inability to ensure social distancing guidelines as recommended by Clark County Health Department and CDC. We look forward to rescheduling Open Saturday in the future. Please check our website and social media sites for future updates. Thank you for your support and understanding.


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.

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.

“Best daddy day ever!” – Pax, Mykah, Noah, and Moses T.
