Year of Aviation Tweetup

  • What is a Tweetup?
    • A Tweetup is an event where a group of Twitter (or Facebook, Instagram, etc.) users plan to share an experience. The U.S. Space & Rocket Center is inviting social media users to our Aviation Challenge campus in Huntsville, Alabama on June 7, 2014 for the ultimate one-day TOP GUN experience and a chance to learn about the projects we’re working on during our Year of Aviation.

      This event includes Aviation Challenge’s water-survival training, an exciting guest speaker, a mission in our TOP GUN F-16 simulators, lunch by the lake, an aircraft tour of our Aviation Challenge campus and more!
