Our Visitors Say
Excellent experience for our learners. Very educational ... Learners were in awe !!!!!
Had an event here. WOW.. so awesome to be surrounded by these planes. Saw the SAA plane that flew over Ellis Park for the Rugby World Cup in 1995. The team that worked there were fantastic
A great guide went all out to make us feel welcome, answer our questions, and surprise and keep our little one stimulated. The opportunity to see and explore parts of a real-life aircraft that you do not get an opportunity to do as a passenger is invaluable.
