“Exploration of Flight” Museum Now Open at Centennial Airport
DENVER — Wings Over the Rockies’ Exploration of Flight, a unique to the nation attraction, is now open at Centennial Airport in Englewood.
Designed to incorporate future-focused aviation and space centers, Exploration of Flight is 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 is located 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., was the architect for the project.
The 19,000-square-foot Boeing Blue Sky Aviation Gallery is broken up into two experience arenas. The first floor will cover the “experience” of flight.
On the second level, visitors will understand the “sequence” of flight. From mission planning and career readiness to a full-fledged viewing lounge, guests will be able to witness the excitement and buzz of the second busiest general aviation airport in the United States.
Along with the robust array of interactive exhibits, the Blue Sky Gallery will include incredible opportunities to discover flight first-hand. Sit in the cockpit of pilot-quality flight simulators, interact with the latest aviation technology and even experience flight itself through a partnership with Aspen Flying Club.
Located at 13005 Wings Way, Englewood, CO 80112, the Gallery is open to the public each Friday and Saturday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Sunday from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
