Attention Viking Council Scout Leaders


Are you looking for a fun and educational outing for your group? The volunteers of American Wings Air Museum invite scouts to join us at the museum for a fun and informative visit.

The volunteers have developed programs that are tailored to the age of scouts.  For the Webaloes and Cub Scouts, we provide a guided tour of the museum, time in the trainers, viewing of an age appropriate video and a packet of aviation-related books for each Scout.

For the Boy Scouts, we have an Aviation Merit Badge Program that is designed to help complete the elective requirements of the Aviation Merit Badge book.  This program offers the following options: a ground school covering how to use an aeronautical chart, pre-flight training on one of the museum aircraft, a guided tour of the museum, a video about being an airline pilot, a discussion of aviation careers and a packet of information about aviation careers for the troop leader to share with the Scouts.  Scouts should read (and troop leaders should review) the Aviation Merit Badge book before coming to the museum.

We offer these programs on Saturdays, at 10:00am and 1:00pm.  We ask for a two week advance booking for these programs.  Our normal admission fee is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students.  But, we offer these programs for just $3.00 per person - including adults.  Please call 763-786-4146 to schedule your visit.  We look forward to seeing you!
