Located in Coconut Grove, FL, The First Flight celebrates the aviation history of Pan American World Airways. From their Dinner Key Terminal, still located in Coconut Grove and serving as City Hall, Pan Am revolutionized air-travel by offering Flying Clipper service to Latin America at a time when paved runways were still unavailable in the region. Miami’s Coconut Grove played a major role in Pan Am’s eventual spot as the world’s premier airline.
Note: The First Flight Out is temporarily closed as CocoWalk is renovated. We will announce our reopening date as soon as possible. We would highly suggest a visit to the Pan Am Museum in Garden City, New York which presents Pan Am exhibits in their breathtaking, world-class facility.
Former employees of Pan Am have generously shared memorabilia, uniforms and their first-hand stories of what life was like at Pan Am with all who’ve visit The First Flight Out.
