Estrella Warbirds Museum Tour -- Docent Led
For all aviation and military buffs, the Estrella Warbirds Museum is a must-see. With two dozen aircraft on display, the museum also has missiles, tanks, and other military vehicles and machinery, as well as military artifacts and paraphernalia and civilian artifacts kept by Civilians and military personnel during the wars.
Located on the southern end of the Paso Robles airport property, the museum is one of few fly-in or drive-in facilities in the country. The museums primary goal is to preserve, perpetuate and display American aviation history, especially that of our nations military services. While the museum does not own flyable aircraft, many of the museum members own flyable WWII aircraft that are on display.
During this two-hour docent-led outside walking tour you will see the military planes and equipment preserved from previous wars. The museum always has something going on and has thematic displays that change at regular intervals throughout the year, so if you have visited before, you will be sure to see something new. After the tour, it's time for lunch. We encourage you to bring your own water and a sack lunch to enjoy at one of the picnic tables scattered throughout the grounds. Cost for the tour for LLCC members is $13 including admission to the museum. Non-members are welcome to register for this course at a cost of $18.
After the tour, you may want to try out the museums real-life FA/18 Hornet Flight Simulator. It will be reserved for those of you who want to do this after the tour. The simulator is for both pilots and non-pilots and simulates real time flight in the cockpit of an FA/18. The cost for the simulator experience is $20 per half hour, and, if interested, you will pay for this experience at the museum. Groups of three may share this treat, or you may 'be a pilot' for the entire half hour.
