Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 787 Dreamliner Engine


Aviation has changed dramatically since William Boeing filled his first production order of Model C Seaplanes for the U.S. Navy during World War I. Through the interactive learning zones of the Future of Flight Aviation Center Gallery, you’ll learn just how far we’ve come in aviation design and where we’re headed to in the future.

Begin your journey in the Airplane Design Zone, where you’ll learn all about the technological nuances and design innovations of powered flight. Step up to one of the design zone computers to begin digitally designing a commercial jet of your own. Then “taxi” on over to the other Gallery zones where you’ll be able to modify, test and finalize your design at touch-screen computers before printing off the final schematic of your jet in the Future of Flight Gift Shop.
