Up in the Air

Day 1. A Day at the Museums – Start out with a refresher course on all that Long Island is known for when it comes to aeronautics with some help from the Cradle of Aviation and the American Airpower Museum. Children and adults alike will be over the moon with excitement, walking among the actual Lunar Module model, one of Charles Lindbergh’s planes. If it’s heavy equipment you like there is also the Museum of Armor with tanks and more on display, hosting mock deployments and military maneuvers as a spectacle.

Day 2. On the Strip – The Bayport Aerodrome is Long Island’s last remaining public grass airfield. It acts as a unique museum, with antique aircraft of all sorts on display and even functioning including Bi-Planes, Champs, Cubs and more. This is the place where the coolest vintage pilots go, so be sure to stop by and have a look around. A little further east is the Grumman Memorial Park, a dedication to the hard working ‘Grummanites’ of days since passed.

Day 3. Take to the Sky – With the help of Sky Sailors you can leave the ground behind. With gliders, tandem parachuting and more you are sure to find something to get that adrenaline pumping. Be sure to take some photos while you’re up there, as you would be hard pressed to find a better vantage point of our beautiful Long Island! Spend the evening in the Hamptons where you can enjoy the gorgeous ocean scenery from the ground.
