Visit The Hiller Aviation Museum
The Hiller Aviation Museum is an amazing, and budget-friendly, a tourist destination for anyone who is interested in planes, is curious about history, wants to gain knowledge on how to fly or obtain insight on drones and let their imagination soar. Open daily from 10am-5pm, Hiller Aviation Museum offers fun for the entire group. With over 40 unique aircraft, guided or self-guided tours available, exciting field trip packages, private group space rental options, creative special activities, mind-blowing realistic flight simulators, multiple varieties of drones and a stimulating aviation camp, there is fun available for all age ranges, skill, and interest levels.
The most popular attraction is the FMX Flight Simulator. With the assistance of experts in the field of flight, beginners may begin their practice on a gigantic monitor in the Flight Sim-Zone. Here, visitors learn about the basics of flight and flight controls, and helpful tips to fly a plane successfully. Take a few practice runs in this three-dimensional simulator until comfortable and discover the beautiful Bay Area from an exceptional birds-eye view. When comfortable and after building some confidence with the flight controls (or if an intermediate flyer), venture over to the FMX Flight Simulator - a full motion FAA-approved flight simulator frequently used (and normally only available within) flight schools and flight training academies and a genuine treat for museum visitors. Fly like a pro, and feel like one too, with a certified pilot instructor in a fully functional cockpit for an exceptional 10-minute experience unlike any other. Experience what it is like to fly a real plane and learn more, first hand, about aviation, than you could anywhere else for an extremely affordable price.
Another popular section of the museum explores the allure surrounding one of today’s most popular gadgets: drones. Step into Drone-Plex - a drone flight center packed with fun simulators, a try-and-fly station, exciting live demonstrations, and a retail station for those interested in purchasing any of the demonstrated models. Learn about the differences in the varieties of designs, different types of cameras, functionality, aerodynamics, how to build your own (for those curious and advanced engineers), or use one of the many simulators to see nature from a drone’s point of view.
