As I had the opportunity only once to fly on PanAm ( LAX-LHR 747-100 flt120 )before it went under and today regrets I never took the inflight magazine which I believe was called "Clipper"? ( I have since collected inflight magazines and safety cards from all airlines I have flown with ).
I know there is a store in Miami connected to the PAN AM Flight Academy called the AWARE store which sells everything and anything connected to the former PanAm, so my questions is;
have u been to the store and is it worth visiting and is it possible to buy copies of the inflight magazine and safety cards? Would love to see the store for myself and go shopping....

It's a great store. I've probably spent around $500 in there over the past few years. Be sure to ask for Mary Goshgarian, the owner of the store. She has some great stories regarding her years with Pan Am. Also, if you go, take a picture with life size cut out of a Pan Am flight attendant. Classic!
It's very close to MIA and is most certainly worth a visit...or two...or three.

The Pan Am AWARE store is worth a visit if you are in South Florida. It had a decent selection of items for sale. On the day I visited, the sales clerks in the store were all former PA flight attendants who were nice and interesting to talk to. They also were playing an audio tape of old PanAm commercials.

I was just at the Pan Am Aware store last week. It's in the Pan Am Flight Academy building near Miami International Airport. The store is on the 2nd floor. On the ground floor by the reception desk there is an awesome cutaway model of a Pan Am 747. As for the store itself, it's really more of a souvenir store than a place to buy memorabilia. There are quite a few models, t-shirts, books, and posters, but didn't see anything like actual inflight magazines or safety cards there. For that sort of thing, go to Ebay, there are literally hundreds of Pan Am items there, and I see Clipper magazines and safety cards there quite often.
