Aviation and Space Exploration    

Elderhostel Intergenerational Programs were designed for adults (grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, or authorized family friends) to participate in a learning adventure with their young relatives or friends. These programs provide opportunities for grandparents to get to know their grandchildren better, for aunts and uncles to share their enthusiasm for special places, and for Elderhostelers to experience with younger friends the spirit of Elderhostel: "sharing new ideas, challenges, and experiences is rewarding in every season of life."
Take off with your grandchild on a thrilling exploration of flight at the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center. A certified flight instructor briefs you on aerospace history, design and operation before taking you on flight lessons aboard a Cessna 172. Put theory into practice in a 4-g centrifuge and F-16 systems trainer. In a Space Shuttle simulator, work together to accomplish mission goals, then build robots and rockets and fly RC planes to improve communication and problem-solving skills. Explore modern aircraft manufacturing on a tour of Bombardier Aerospace in Wichita, the Air Capital City. Dr. Goddard's Lab, the Justice Planetarium, the IMAX Dome Theater and other area attractions ensure an exciting week of adventure learning for all.
