In less than a century’s time, humans went from traveling on foot to flying in the air and standing on the moon.

This is the story of aerospace technology, and much of that story was written here, in the heart of the PNW.

Modern flight didn’t begin in the Pacific Northwest, but it was developed and perfected here. We are a region full of trees and waterways. Early seaplane enthusiasts like William Boeing knew the value of using local timber to make airplanes that could be shipped from Puget Sound.

There is something about this region that encourages bold moves, like the desire to pursue the perfection of flight.

Today’s visitors to Seattle NorthCountry can experience six attractions in the Aviation District that will deepen their appreciation for the pioneering spirit of aviation.
