Museum Overnights

Lone Star Flight Museum Overnights are for youth groups of any kind . . . scouts, church groups, ROTC, clubs, family organizations, or just a bunch of friends that want to have a great time!

Youth can sleep under the wings of history! Spend the evening learning about the collection of rare air-worthy warbirds, conducting a preflight inspection of a real plane, testing pilot skills in our flight simulators, and learning science with more hands-on aviation STEM activities. Then, everyone sets up camp and sleeps under the wings of our rare and historic planes! Pizza dinner, snack, and a light breakfast are included.

Overnights can be customized for any church group, club, or other youth organization, so let us know you’re interested and we can build the event activities to fit your group. All Overnights include the Pilot Experience where youth preflight check a real Mooney Ovation plane, take our piloting orientation, and fly the simulators on a training flight. Scouts BSA complete the requirements for the Aviation Merit Badge using our exhibit halls and flight simulators. Cubs and Webelos have a fun-filled night of flying on the sims, launching stomp jets, and more. American Heritage Girls can complete the Aviation Badge for all age levels and Girl Scout can work on badge activities like the Brownies Fling Flyer and the Junior Balloon Car Challenges.
