Calling all aerospace lovers. Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum (WOTR) is bringing you a new and interactive way to experience aviation and the future of aerospace. After almost a decade of planning and building, WOTR is launching the Boeing Blue Sky Aviation Gallery this July.
The newest aerospace attraction will be located at the Centennial Airport on the Exploration of Flight campus. Centennial Airport is the second busiest general aviation airport in the nation, allowing visitors of the new exhibit to learn more and experience aerospace like never before.
The 19,000 square foot facility features interactive and educational exhibits for visitors, spaces to watch airplanes take off and even listen to chatter from the Centennial Tower. Blue Sky Gallery will also include opportunities to experience flight first-hand, sit in the cockpit of Redbird simulators, interact with the latest industry tech and even experience flight through a partnership with Aspen Flying Club.
WOTR is hoping that the opening of the Boeing Blue Sky Aviation Gallery will also help solve the aerospace shortage of pilots, mechanics and ATC controllers. This new gallery is also phase-one of Wings Over the Rockies Exploration of Flight: a unique-to-the-nation campus offering visitors incredible experiences and educational opportunities focused on aerospace.
These experiences and more will be available on the opening weekend — July 21 and July 22 — and each weekend thereafter. The Gallery is open to the public every Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m. located at 13005 Wings Way, Englewood.
