The Thrill of Flight
Program # 16190
Dates: January 12-17, 2014

To fly, to soar into the heavens has captivated people since Icarus mythologically put on wings and flew toward the sun. Learn about the many ways flight has impacted our lives and see what’s behind the thrill (a mixture of excitement and fear) that almost everyone experiences the first time they feel the rush of takeoff and look out the window of an airliner at the receding earth below. Return to the beginning of scheduled air travel when in January 1914, the very first airliner flew from St. Petersburg to Tampa. Explore the world’s largest private collection of vintage aircraft. Tour the award-winning Tampa International and a small private airport. Hear pilots and flight experts bring to life the history of aviation and the triumphs of famous aviators and speculate on the future of flight. Learn more.
