More visitors signing up for Boeing Tour | Letter

Sep 21, 2016

Editor, The Beacon:

The desired end-state of Institute of Flight is reflected in our seven-word vision statement: "Igniting passion for the future of aerospace."

We implement our vision through our mission: "Institute of Flight inspires and nurtures multi-generational local and global visitors through immersive hands-on exhibits, tours and aerospace education experiences."

As we head into the fourth quarter of our fiscal year, our impact continues to build.

With the Boeing Tour, 244,029 guests have been served through Sept. 9, which is up 8.79 percent from this time in 2015.

Special thanks go out to the Boeing Tour team, the Boeing Store staff, the Paper Plane Café staff, the Future of Flight Gift Shop, and the Institute of Flight staff and volunteers.

Thank you also to The Boeing Co. for the grant through Corporate Citizenship to refresh our Boeing aircraft exhibit.

Aerospace gallery attendance at the Future of Flight Aviation Center is up over last year. As of Aug. 31, 13,919 guests have been served, compared to 12,478 during 2015.

Credit for achieving this milestone goes to The Boeing Co. for their collaboration on the current rotating exhibit celebrating 100 years. Please stop by and visit before it closes at the end of the year.

Bonnie Hilory,

Executive Director,

Institute of Flight
