Behind-the-Scenes Look at Two Area Attractions
Visit two West Valley facilities in one trip: The nearby airport, where planes are rebuilt and pilots from many countries are trained, and a world-class, multi-purpose sports and entertainment complex.
Goodyear Airport, one of three that The City of Phoenix Aviation Department operates, has a rich naval history rooted in World War II, when the facility was used to test fly and deliver aircraft. Today the site is an active center for the refurbishing of old planes, training pilots from other countries, and the Lux Air Jet Center, which assists businesses and general aviators using all types of private aircraft and heavy transports.
The tour will include a drive-by of aircraft currently mothballed on the property, including Lady Bird Johnson's plane. We'll also see how planes are refurbished and the site where parts, rescued from old planes, are available for sale.
We’ll then go to the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale for lunch before our behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium, a marvel of design, engineering and technology that features North America’s only combination of a roll-out, natural-grass field and a retractable roof.
Whether you’re a football neophyte or a die-hard fanatic, you’ll enjoy exploring interesting, behind-the-scenes viewpoints during this 75-minute, one-mile walking tour of the home of the National Football League’s Arizona Cardinals.
NOTE: Please wear comfortable shoes.
The tour route uses ramps and elevators.
