If you’re worried about where you’ll watch Boeing’s 787 make its first flight, you can still get a reserved spot at the Future of Flight.
The aviation center sits across Paine Field, where Boeing’s Dreamliner will take to the skies. Although Boeing hasn’t announced a date yet, the company is aiming to put its Dreamliner in the air before year’s end.
The Future of Flight Aviation Center and Boeing Tour will host a private event on its deck and in its gallery for people who have donated $250 or more to its foundation.
There are still about 100 slots available, said Sandy Ward, marketing director for the Future of Flight. Aviation enthusiasts should make their donations prior to the first flight if they hope to get a ticket.
Guests receive a VIP Parking pass, admission to the private party in the gallery of the Future of Flight where there will be food, mimosas and other beverages.
Donors will watch the 787’s first flight from the center’s Strato Deck. Or they can stay indoors to watch the flight on live feed on a large screen. Only donors will have access to the gallery and the Strato Deck. Donors will also receive first flight momentos after the plane lands by picking them up at FoF or via mail.
Don’t want to fork over $250 per ticket? Go visit the Future of Flight’s gift store for a chance to win two tickets. The aviation center also is offering free wine tastings daily from noon to 4 p.m., as well as free gift wrapping and discounts.
