New Future of Aviation Trail at National Museum of Flight
July 1, 2021 - October 31, 2021
The National Museum of Flight in East Fortune is exploring the future of aviation with a brand new family summer trail.
From reusing old technology to flying without pilots, the new Flying into the Future trail takes visitors around each of the Museum’s hangars to get a glimpse into what lies ahead for the aviation industry. Using a special map filled with fun activities, families are encouraged to complete puzzles and answer a range of questions about aviation.
While solving the flight-themed brain-teasers, visitors will learn about the challenges faced by the aviation industry and how aircraft engineers are using innovative solutions to meet the Scottish Government targets to reduce the negative impact of aviation by 2040.
The Flying into the Future trail runs until Sunday 31 October and is most suitable for families with children aged 7-11. Visitors can download or pick up the new Museum trail on arrival.
Located at East Fortune Airfield in East Lothian, the National Museum of Flight displays a range of historic aircraft, from Concorde to a Supermarine Spitfire. The National Museum of Flight is open seven days a week between 10am-5pm. Timed-entry tickets are available to purchase in advance from the website
In line with Scottish Government guidelines, a range of measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of visitors and staff. This includes pre-booked timed entry, face coverings, enhanced cleaning, sneeze screens, hand-sanitising stations and one-way routes.
