The 2017 AEHS Convention venue will be hotter and drier than any previous one, and all attendees will be spending a lot of time outside. The size of the Pima Air and Space Museum will make Duxford look like a walk around the block! Narrated tram tours costing $6.00 are available for those not wishing to walk the 80-acre outside display.

An abundance of caution, plus some prior planning is in order for all attendees. Tim and Kathy McDaid, who live in the area, recommended the following for everyone:

● Reusable water bottle
● Hat
● Sunglasses
● Long-sleeved top
● LOTS of sunscreen applied to exposed areas several times per day
● Real walking shoes (Hiking boots not necessary, but NO flip-flops or sandals. Some walking we will be on gravel and unpaved paths.)

Dehydration really is a big deal; "by the time you feel thirsty, it is too late". Keep a water bottle filled and drink from it often.

For those participating in the non-aviation tours, be sure to leave extra luggage room for items bought. Admission to the DeGrazia Gallery will be $6.00, the Desert Museum $10.50. Lunch will average $15.00 - $20.00
