Flying Aircraft Pilots & Flight Crews

Flights of History

Keeping our historic aircraft airworthy and operating flying them to air shows across the country each year is a big operation. Not only are the pilots important, but so are our maintainers and ground crews, who work countless hours each year keeping this historic machines flying.

Below is a list of some of the key people involved in our flying aircraft programs. Most of these people are not pilots, but rather individuals committed to keeping their aircraft flying. If you would like to help out with our flying aircraft programs, please contact one of staff below for more information. You do not need to be a pilot, nor an aircraft mechanic to help out at the Museum or at an air show.

Note: The list below is not complete.
