A taste of romance alights at the Hiller Aviation Museum during Seaplane Adventure!
Seaplane Adventure features a fly-in of "amphibious" aircraft from around the western United States. These planes can operate from land as well as water, and will arrive in the morning for display at the Museum.
Inside the Museum, we will also feature our new centerpiece exhibit, a Grumman HU-16 Albatross-last and largest of the famed Grumman amphibians. The Museum's aircraft, N44RD, participated in an around-the-world flight following the path originally flown by Amelia Earhart in 1937. The Museum's Albatross was graciously donated by local businessman and philanthropist Mr. Reid Dennis.
The Museum's Flight Sim Zone will be available throughout the event, providing the opportunity to fly Cessna Caravan and Grumman Goose amphibians from virtual waters (additional ticket required). At the end of the day, the Museum will bid farewell to many of the Grumman, Republic and Lake amphibians as they depart for their home airports.
