In addition to the above we conduct tours for school children and other interested organizations. The hangar is open most weekends with maintenance being done and flying, if the weather permits. Four of our aircraft are single engine trainers and the fifth is a twin engine Lockheed C-60 that was used to transport paratroopers. On the first and third Saturdays each month we have docents in the museum to share information and answer questions visitors may have.

The third weekend of April each year we host a two day open house. We have many additional aircraft on display as well as many other items of interest. This year brought twenty two military aircraft including the B-17 Flying Fortress and several fighters. Plane rides could be purchased in these historic aircraft also.
