About the party: The special day took place at “Terminal One” at the 94th Aero Squadron with busy Van Nuys Airport as the backdrop featuring tons of airplanes and helicopters taking flight. After the mini pilots blasted off in the space shuttle ride and crowned the champion of the paper plane toss, they enjoyed their in-flight meal and treated themselves to some super fluffy clouds (aka cotton candy!). They got some major jet fuel with an interactive bubble show, a flipbook station, DIY paper airplanes, pilot tattoo station, and a soft play area where the kids “had a ball” in the sunshine and clouds filled ball pit!
