Fly With An Astronaut at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

This weekend, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will offer a special, limited-time, limited-capacity program called Fly With An Astronaut, on February 15 and 16 only.

Fly With An Astronaut allows guests to spend a half day experiencing the highlights of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, including a ‘flight’ on Shuttle Launch Experience, with a veteran NASA space shuttle astronaut and pilot.

Limited to just 43 guests each day, the program includes admission to the Visitor Complex as well as a morning of tours and activities guided by astronaut Jon McBride. McBride served as the pilot of STS-41G aboard space shuttle Challenger, and he will join guests on the Shuttle Launch Experience.

The experience also includes a catered buffet lunch in a VIP area of the Apollo/Saturn V Center; a panoramic photo stop at the Launch Complex (LC) 39 Observation Gantry, which is otherwise not accessible to guests; an autographed photo of the guest with the astronaut hero; and a retail gift.

Fly With An Astronaut is priced at $199 for adults and $174 for kids age 3-11. This includes Visitor Complex admission, a catered lunch, an autographed photo and a retail gift. Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex annual pass holders may purchase the program for $149 per adult or $134 per child.
