Open Cockpit Month

Sit inside a P-47 Thunderbolt or FG-1D Corsair at the Air Zoo in Portage! This weekend is the start of Open Cockpit Month, where kids can hop into the plane and pretend they're high in the sky.

Each weekend will feature different aircraft where the kdis can get up close and personal with some of the most famous aircraft in history.

Don't miss this amazing chance to climb behind the stick and get a true pilot's eye view of history.

The Air Zoo's open cockpit experience is free with your paid admission and offers great photo opportunities.
