Upon his arrival museum guests can get photos taken with Santa in front of Frontier Flyer.  The Frontier Flyer is a hands-on, interactive portable aircraft that helps teach kids of all ages about aviation and flight.  

One of the afternoon’s most anticipated activities at the Frontiers of Flight Museum’s Santa Day includes following a simulated flight pattern to the North Pole of every planet in our solar system in the amazing Space Portal Odyssey Capsule (SPOC).
