Our Mission

Institute of Flight inspires and nurtures multi-generational local and global visitors through immersive hands-on exhibits, tours, and aerospace education experiences. 

Our History

The Future of Flight Foundation (an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization) opened the Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Tour on December 17, 2005. In December of 2015, the nonprofit changed its name to Institute of Flight to better clarify its role and mission. In addition to operating and managing the Future of Flight, the Institute embraces the important role of stewardship of an active and healthy Culture of Philanthropy. EducationeventsAviation Center exhibits, and financial assistance for needy schools and non-profits are key areas of impact. 

The Institute of Flight is proud to partner with The Boeing Company and Snohomish County. Under the leadership of the County, the Future of Flight facility is partially funded by the Snohomish County Public Facilities District.
