Support Company/Attractions

The Foundation conducts revenue-producing business activities within the National Naval Aviation Museum, principally the Flight Deck Store, the Giant Screen Theater, Motion Based and MaxFlight Simulators, Blue Angels 4D Experience and a share profit from the Cubi Bar Café. After covering its own operating expenses, profit is applied to defray Foundation overhead, and remaining proceeds are gifted to the Museum. That means every ticket sold and purchase made helps the Foundation accomplish its missions to support the Museum and advance STEM education.
