The Boarding Pass is part of NAHA's regional tourism campaign, #StayLocalGoFar.

In just hours, you can travel to the moon, discover the site of the world's first seaplane base on Ohio's only National Water Trail, and tour the world's largest military aviation museum. See other suggestions by following #StayLocalGoFar. 

The National Aviation Heritage Area is the recognized center of aviation heritage tourism and aerospace innovation, sustaining the legacy of the Wright Brothers.
