Event Description

The Empire State Aerosciences Museum, 250 Rudy Chase Drive, Glenville NY 12302 is happy to offer classes for students (ages 8-15 Years old) to learn about the history of aviation and how planes fly. Classes will be limited to six students, and will be conducted in the museum’s outdoor airpark every Saturday, starting September 5, 2020 from 1:00 – 2:30 pm, or by special appointment (for small groups). These outdoor classes are weather-dependent, and thus subject to cancellation. Masks are required and social distancing rules will apply. The ESAM airpark contains twenty historic and spectacular military aircraft, so this is a great opportunity to learn about aviation, see something different, and have fun! Cost is $10.00 per student and reservations are necessary. Please call the museum at 518-377-2191 ext. 10 to register. The Empire State Aerosciences Museum is a one-of-a-kind cultural resource located at the Schenectady County Airport in the Town of Glenville, at the site of the former General Electric Flight Test Center. Dedicated to interpreting aviation, particularly as related to New York State, the museum offers visitors a variety of enjoyable and educational experiences, including interpretive exhibits, a spectacular collection of restored aircraft, the State’s largest aviation library and an airpark with over 20 aircraft! Exhibits include the enemy aircraft in the film “Top Gun,” a 34’ scale model of the Japanese aircraft carrier “Akagi” built for the film “Tora, Tora, Tora” and a mockup of Amelia Earhart’s Lockheed 10, used in the TV movie “The Final Flight” starring Diane Keaton.
