GSBF CONVENTION 41, October 24 - 28, 2018
Wednesday, October 24, 2018
1.) 10:00am - 12:00pm McClellan Air Museum $25 Meet hotel lobby 9:30am
The California Air and Space Museum is about 5 minutes away for the site of our convention. We have made special arrangements with the facility to allow our participants to receive ½ hour of “stick time” on any one of six flight simulators. These computer driven simulators with three large stereo screens allow ‘pilots’ to fly any one of over 300 different planes, from a 747-700 to an F-35 fighter jet. Using the simulations people are able to take off and land at any one of over 500 airports globally. We tried these out and they are way fun.
Make sure you sign up early for this Wednesday morning event because we are sure it will fill up quickly. In addition to time on the simulators the museum occupies acres of space with static displays and video presentations of jet and rocket propelled flight. For those who like to try and understand how this stuff works the museum does a great job!
