HARS Aviation Museum has some special tours available on its Boeing 747 during the Wings Over Illawarra Airshow on Saturday 7th and Sunday the 8th of November 2020. Details of the tours follow.
747 Jumbo Jet Cockpit Experience: an incredible opportunity to experience first hand what really goes on at the pointy end of this huge aircraft.
Enjoy 45 minutes in the Cockpit of our Qantas 747-438, VH-OJA sitting in the Pilot and Co-Pilot seats hosted by a 747 pilot who will explain the workings of the cockpit in detail including take-off and landing procedures and emergency procedures that you would not normally be aware of.
These tours are normally limited to two guests at a cost of $100 per guest however in some cases where there is an additional family member or friend, a third guest may be allowed in the Cockpit ’jump seat’ at a reduced cost of $50. Tours will be conducted every hour for a duration of 45 minutes starting at 9:30 AM with the last tour at 2:30 PM each day.
The minimum age for these tours is 14 years although children aged 12 and 13 may be accepted if accompanied by a family member or guardian (friend of family).
Please call HARS Reception on 02 4257 4333 to reserve your seat. Payment is required to be made at the time of booking, and it is recommended that you book ahead as past experience has shown that there are very few slots available on the actual days of the Airshow.
Special Wing Walk tours will be conducted during the Wings Over Illawarra Airshow weekend for up 6 guests at a time for a duration of 15 minutes on the 747 Jumbo Jet starboard wing. Guests will experience great views and photo opportunities of the Wings Over Illawarra activities below.

These tours will be run on both days every half hour starting at 9:30 AM with the last tour at 3:00 PM. Availability of these tours will be subject to weather conditions, so bookings and ticket sales will only be available at the HARS 747 aircraft site on the days of attending the Airshow.
