Based in Nichols Hills, Oklahoma, Lew McGinnis guides Consolidated Capital Investments where he leverages more than five decades of real estate investment experience. Community involved, Lew McGinnis is active with the Methodist Church and has past experience as director of the Pima Air and Space Museum.
Situated on 80 acres and encompassing a half dozen indoor exhibit hangars, the Tucson, Arizona, museum maintains an extensive World War II collection and also features iconic aircraft such as the Wright Flyer and the 787 Dreamliner.
A focus of the museum is educating youth on aviation history through Soarin’ Saturdays events that take place in the Space Gallery Classroom and are free with admission. One popular event is the monthly Model Airplane Make N’Take, which provides children with snap-together model airplanes they assemble with guidance from Sonoran Desert Model Builders volunteers.
Every second Saturday of the month is reserved for a rocket science-themed experiential program that provides children with knowledge of the laws of motion through building and testing experiments. Another offering is How Things Fly, which explores aerodynamics through hands-on exercises and demonstrations. All Soarin’ Saturdays events require parent participation, with advance reservations recommended.
