Gateway Youth Aeronautical Foundation F-4 Phantom Cockpit Exhibit Nears Completion

By Carmelo Turdo
The Gateway Youth Aeronautical Foundation (GYAF) continues to prepare the recently repainted F-4 Phantom cockpit exhibit for future appearances. Matt Brotemarkle of Silver Fox Marketing applied the decals to the sponsor panel on the rear of the 27-foot restored jet fighter cockpit on Thursday, and Silver Fox Marketing will provide a banner and signage for the GYAF in the coming week. The GYAF's founding sponsors, Mungenast St. Louis Acura and Alton Toyota, are prominently represented below the large GYAF logo.

The cockpit exhibit supports the GYAF's mission to inspire youth to discover the world of aviation, and it will later be joined by a flying Bell OH-58C Kiowa helicopter. Other current and future programs offered by the GYAF are Discovery Flights (see coupon below), RC aircraft build and fly planes, flight simulation experiences and STEM educational programs in cooperation with other organizations.  

The GYAF and Gateway Flight Training have teamed up to offer Discovery Flights from Creve Coeur Airport at half the normal cost. Click on the coupon below to request your flight!
