Greetings from The Aero Experience Team


The Aero Experience is a celebration of Midwest aviation and aerospace achievement. We invite you to join us as we explore the treasures of Midwest aviation through first-hand experiences. Our contributors take turns flying lead, and we are always looking for new destinations. Check in with The Aero Experience frequently to see where we will land today, and then go out and have your own aero experiences!

Blue skies,

Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum and Southwestern Illinois College Team Up to Create Aviation Displays

Southwestern Illinois College has created attractive and informative displays using aviation artifacts provided on loan from the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum.  Together, these two organizations continue to inform the students and the general public about the rich aviation heritage of the St. Louis and Southern Illinois region.  Below are some results of this cooperative effort:
