5 Valentine’s Day Activities for #AvGeeks

Valentine’s Day is this Sunday and while many couples will have a standard dinner and a movie date, us aviation enthusiasts are always thinking of ways to change things up. Here are seven #AvGeek Valentine’s Day ideas:

1. Go planespotting 

Yes, it is that simple. Grab a camera, a radio scanner, and drive over to your local airport to watch some aircraft movements. If you are really feeling it, perhaps make it into a picnic.

2. Watch a good aviation movie

Grab your 787 coffee mugs, fill them up with some hot chocolate, and turn on your favorite aviation film. We recommend our new documentary Grounded, but that’s a little bias on our part.

3. Go to a local aerospace museum 

Sometimes, museums can be a fun way to show off your knowledge of aviation and to learn other stuff about the ever-changing aerospace industry.

4. Do a discovery flight

Many flight schools offer some kind of “discovery flight” in which you can go hands on and experience how an airplane flies accompanied by a flight instructor. After all, flying is romantic.

5. Surprise your significant other with a flight to an exotic destination

For us #AvGeeks, there is no better Valentine’s Day gift than to fly somewhere and with a significant other, it is even better.
