Air Associates of Missouri Haunted Hangar Has something for Everyone October 26

From the Air Associates Newsletter!

October 26, 2014
12PM - 4PM

What is the Haunted Hangar? Some say it's an event for aspiring pilots. Others claim it's designed as a warm-up for Halloween-crazed kids. We like to sidestep the controversy and describe it as a family-friendly aviation event wrapped in a candy shell of Halloween awesomeness.

Part Open House, part Fall Festival, It's slightly spooky, family friendly and a whole lot of fun!

Things that will happen at the Haunted Hangar:
Free admission
  • Aviation stations with games and prizes for kids and adults.  (Think candy, toys, gift certificates, etc.)  There will even be a fun Halloween craft for kids to create.
  • Free food - Chili, hot dogs, nachos and warm apple cider
  • Free pumpkins for kids 12 and under (While supplies last.)
  • Exclusive discounts (We're talking about saving hundreds of buckaroos on training!)
  • Spirited and slightly spooky decorations
  • Static displays of some AAMO aircraft and several aircraft available for ownership
  • Chances to chat with AAMO's instructors about learning to fly
  • Tours of our school, including our full-motion flight simulator, the Redbird MCX (Scott Thompson is the man to see about the Redbird.)
  • Halloween themed bounce house (Weather permitting.)
  • $99 Discovery Flights (First-come, first served. Again, this depends on the weather.
Things that will not happen at the Haunted Hangar:
  • A petting zoo
  • Paratroopers
  • Terrifying Halloween displays that will give your kids nightmares
