Boeing Future of Flight and Factory Tour


This popular tour takes you for an extraordinary behind-the-scenes look at large airliner manufacturing and the amazing face of future commercial aviation. Ride in comfort to Boeing’s massive factory in Everett, by volume the largest building in the world. From high above the factory floor you’ll view the assembly of Boeing’s wide-open body airplanes – the 747, 767, 777 and the technologically advanced 787 Dreamliner. 

On the flight line see airlines in various stages of being outfitted and painted for airline customers around the world. You may also see a Dreamlifter on the field, a jumbo 747 cargo plane modified to transport the Dreamliner’s large parts from every corner of the world to Everett for final assembly. In the Future of Flight learning centers you’ll use a touch screen computer to digitally design and test your own airplane.

The Future of Flight is an ADA-Compliant facility.  A limited number of wheelchairs are available of a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors needing assistance can check with the Snohomish County visitor information desk in the lobby. Elevators serve all floors. All restrooms are wheelchair accessible. Strollers are allowed in the Future of Flight Aviation Gallery and all public areas; however strollers are not allowed on the Boeing Tour.
