A Healthful 2011

Every staff member at Fantasy of Flight received a year-end "Health Bonus" as a farewell to 2010 and a commitment to wellness and prosperity in the year ahead.


All of us challenge you--our extended family of Fantasy of Flight fans--to join us in adopting "a healthier lifestyle going into the New Year," as the boss blazes the trail by dropping 30-plus pounds and 12% body fat. Not to mention lowering blood pressure and increasing vitality.

However, we do have a secret weapon sitting in our break room, a StayHealthy kiosk that assesses our health levels and tracks our progress toward personal health goals. And it works!


Soon the kiosk will move out to the lobby for everyone to use. And if a little inspiration is all you need, check out Kermit's story on his blog!

Devoted followers of the paranormal: if you couldn't attend the sold-out investigations last October, grab your EMF detector and get ready for the winter season of nightFlight.


And if you did attend, you may just want to return!


Phase 2 of our popular paranormal investigations continues as we dig deeper into the mysterious female spirit "M" in the Officers Club; the new approach in the Carrier Deck with the cluster of Naval carrier-based aircraft; the expansion of the investigation into new areas, especially the Restoration Shop; and the EVP experience within the PBY Catalina.


Reservations are now open for the Jan. 29, Feb. 26, and March 5 nightFlight investigations. Click here to register or to learn more!

 Many thanks for all the great support of Fantasy of Flight friends who helped bring smiles to a  bunch of youngsters during the holidays.


Clearly, visitiors were motivated by more than the discount to lend a hand. In addition to six bicycles (!!!), plenty of dollies, cars, and other cool toys brightened the holidays for some needy kids.
