Aviation Discovery Park at PNS 

Pensacola, Florida

The General Daniel "Chappie" James Jr. Aviation Discovery Park Project in Pensacola designed to promote aviation among our youth. Bay Design donated the architectural services for the park. The park has been used as a way to garner support for the airport among the citizens of the area by making the airport and its operations easily visible to them, and to generate an interest in aviation on the part of the younger citizens.

The Aviation Discovery Park is an observation area located at Pensacola International Airport which provides:

  • An excellent view of airport operations.

  • Both runways and control tower.

  • Terminal and General Aviation facilities.

  • Radio equipment to listen to the control tower and aircraft.

  • A display area containing information about local aviation pioneers

  • A layout of the airport showing runways and other major features.

  • A play area and facilities for younger visitors.

  • A miniature control tower and layout of the runways.
