Put yourself in the pilot’s seat at the Open Cockpit Weekend which is held on the middle weekend of the Queensland school holidays. As the name suggests, the cockpits of several aircraft are opened for public inspection. Museum visitors are invited to actually sit in the cockpits of selected aircraft including the iconic F-111. Some of the larger aircraft, for example our 1937 vintage Douglas DC-3, are also opened up so that visitors can experience an aisle that goes uphill, sit in the cabin and see what air travel was like in days gone by.

This year’s event will support ‘LEGACY’ by donating a portion of the admission plus sponsorship for the Caloundra Community Bank Great Plane Race.

*Family tickets include a $5.00 voucher for the QAM sh.
