Host a themed event: Airline Travel

Airline Travel event at Lyon Air Museum, located on the west side of John Wayne/Orange County Airport

Lyon Air Museum is the perfect venue to host an airline theme event complete with pilot and stewardess servers, boarding pass invites, and suitcase props! Send out boarding pass invites. Setup a "bag check" table for when guests arrive and register.  Choose from our preferred catering list for servers dressed in airline service attire (photo: The Turnip Rose servers). Additionally servers can push food and beverage carts around for guests to order snacks and drinks during cocktail hour.  Create a fun centerpiece like flower stuffed suitcases.
