Blind Teens to Fly High at Hiller Aviation Museum

Celebrate the spirit of discovery and innovation of the aviation pioneers whose creativity made the dream of flight a reality for all of us. Join the LightHouse Youth Program on Saturday, November 22 as we explore aviation and flight at the Hiller Aviation Museum. Spend the day with friends as we travel from the LightHouse to the San Carlos Airport where we will enjoy a guided tour of the facility.
