Open Cockpit Weekend - Queensland Air Museum - Dress Uniform

  • Queensland Air Museum 7 Pathfinder Drive Caloundra, 4551 Australia (map)

Cadets and officers from Forest Lake Squadron will attend on one of the days to assist Sunshine Coast Squadron at their display.

Put yourself in the pilot’s seat at the Open Cockpit Weekend which is held on the middle weekend of the Queensland school holidays. As the name suggests, the cockpits of several aircraft are opened for public inspection. Museum visitors are invited to actually sit in the cockpits of selected aircraft including the iconic F-111. Some of the larger aircraft, for example our 1937 vintage Douglas DC-3, are also opened up so that visitors can experience an aisle that goes uphill, sit in the cabin and see what air travel was like in days gone by.

By attending and assisting the cadets gain free access to the museum and have the opportunity to explore the exhibits.

More information will be provided as the event draws closer.
