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!

Visit to National Naval Aviation Museum Caps Sun'n Fun Road Trip

By Carmelo Turdo
The Aero Experience Team visits aviation museums at every opportunity, usually within the Midwest region.  When there is an opportunity to go beyond our area to visit the great aviation museums across the nation, we will make the journey.  A visit to the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, Florida, was on the agenda as we accompanied the Fly Now! The Movie crew on our return from Sun'n Fun 2015 in Lakeland.  The museum is legendary for its preservation and presentation of U.S. Naval Aviation artifacts in exhibits that contain far more than just aircraft.  The inclusion of attractions such as the Cubi Bar Café, Medal of Honor gallery, art gallery, and Blue Angels theater puts the visitor into the heart of past and present naval aviation.  We feature a few illustrations to encourage our audience to visit the museum when possible, especially during the U.S. Navy Blue Angels Homecoming in early November.
