“Exploration of Flight” Museum Coming Summer 2018 to Centennial Airport
DENVER — Wings Over the Rockies (Wings), an aerospace focused Colorado non-profit, announced earlier this month that it will open a second one-of-a-kind museum, “Exploration of Flight,” on the south side of Centennial Airport.
Designed to incorporate future-focused aviation and space centers, Exploration of Flight will be a 15-acre campus located on the south side of Centennial Airport in Englewood. The sister facility to Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum in Denver’s Lowry neighborhood, Exploration of Flight will be housed at one of the busiest general aviation airports in the nation, offering visitors incredible experiences that focus on aerospace.
D2C Architects (D2C), a Denver-based full service architecture and interior design firm., is the architect for the project.
Slated for completion in summer 2018, phase one of Wings’ Exploration of Flight campus, the Boeing Blue Sky Aviation Gallery, will offer a visitor experience unlike any facility before it. Entering a world of active flight, the gallery will be filled with interactive exhibits and activities designed to excite and thrill while educating visitors about aviation. Visitors will have the opportunity to engage with world-class exhibits, experience a thrilling simulator, tour Centennial Airport, witness live takeoffs, landings and even indulge in flight itself.
“This facility will be unique to the nation,” explained Wings Over the Rockies President & CEO, John Barry. “Our Air & Space Museum in Lowry will concentrate on the past while the Exploration of Flight Campus at Centennial Airport will focus on the present and future. One organization, two locations.”
