Free 911 Museum Access to Flight Crew Members For National Aviation Week - LAA/LUS
The 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City will mark National Aviation Week by providing FREE Museum access to active and retired flight crew members during regular operating hours from August 15-19. The Museum will feature flight crew-themed exhibits throughout the week to highlight this tragic chapter in aviation history and share our stories with Museum visitors.
Free Onsite ticketing will be provided to those presenting a valid company ID. Retired crewmembers who don’t have identification will be asked to complete a verification form.
In addition, we invite all members to join APFA Union Representatives and the Museum staff on Tuesday, August 16th at 15:30 for special tributes on the plaza in honor of the flight crews lost on 9/11 and the commitment of the men and women who continue to keep airline passengers safe.
