Field Trips

All visitors to the National Naval Aviation Museum, Fort Barrancas or the Pensacola Lighthouse, who do not possess a Department of Defense identification card or are not escorted by the holder of a Department of Defense identification card will be required to enter AND exit Naval Air Station Pensacola through the West Gate off Blue Angel Parkway. Click here for directions to the NAS Pensacola West Gate.

The mission of the Flight to Excellence (FTE) educational field trip program is to optimize the use of the National Naval Aviation Museum as an educational tool for teachers and visiting students in grades K-12. The program achieves this by incorporating educational Giant Screen movies and accompanying Teachers’ Walking Tour guides into a field trip. In addition to serving public, private and home-schooled students, we welcome Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts, church youth groups, YMCA, JROTC, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, etc.
