Wings and Wheels Volunteers and Spotters Day plus A Visit from SantaWings and Wheels Volunteers and Spotters Day plus A Visit from Santa

Enjoy our monthly fly-in at the 1940 Air Terminal Museum, inside the original art-deco terminal building at Houston Hobby Airport! From 11 am to 3 pm we invite aircraft to stop by Hobby, enjoy the hospitality of our very GA-friendly airport, and park at the 'old terminal'. All year we are celebrating the 75th birthday of the original terminal building! Our December theme is Volunteers and Planespotters! We're saying thank you to our wonderful volunteers and recognizing the aviation photographers that love planes as much as we do! Also, we'll have arts and crafts for the kiddos when we open at 10. Santa will arrive at 11:45, with photos from 12:15 to 12:45, then it's story time with Santa for the kids in the Atrium! Santa departs at 1:00 pm. Then stick around, our annual aviation trivia challenge will start at 1:15. Guess that airplane! Or airport! Or ...? Win your own root beer! Fly in and your plane becomes part of the display, as we make it possible for people to get up close to real planes and chat with real pilots - with a commercial airport as our backdrop. You may inspire someone to get their own wings! Any and all aircraft are welcome to our ramp (please contact us so we can expect you) where security-badged volunteers provide supervised access to the public. Just tell the nice folks on the radio you'd like to park at 'the old terminal' or 'the museum'. Hobby is a GA friendly airport, featuring Texas-sized hospitality! Admission ($7 adult, $3 kids 12 and under) is waived for anyone who flies in or drives up in a classic car, as well as for their passengers. A local roving food vendor will be by around lunchtime.
