Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium (TASM) will celebrate Black Fly-day Weekend in place of the regular shopping holiday on Nov. 23 and 24. The Museum plans to open their members-only flight simulator lab to all guests and invite visitors to design and test flight aircraft in a new interactive exhibit.
“The Museum is a place to spread your wings after a busy holiday and crowded shopping excursions,” said Tonya Blansett, executive director of the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium.
TASM invites families to spend Thanksgiving weekend at the Museum and test their skills as pilots and aerospace engineers. Pilots of any experience are welcome to try their skill in our flight simulation lab. The Museum will have expert simulation pilots present to help you get off the ground. The Museum’s classroom will be transformed into a paper airplane test center, encouraging students to design and create paper crafts then giving them a test flight.
In partnership with the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission and the Exploration Place, TASM has a brought a new interactive exhibit to Tulsa. This exhibit lets you becoming an aircraft designer. You pick the mission then build an airplane using the best parts available and then fly it. Even if it crashes you get the chance to redesign until the mission is best completed.
