More Than Just A Plane Museum
Architecture by: Carter-Burgess
While many of our current educational programs are considered out-reach programs, the construction of this new, expanded facility will provide us the opportunity to expand our purview to reach a greater segment of the community through enhanced on-site educational programs.
Our vision for a great aviation museum is to provide a comprehensive look at the past, present and future of aviation, not only for school children, but also for eager participants of all ages who desire to increase their knowledge. Aviation education will continue to be the focal point of the museum and its members.
Plans are in place to build a 15,000 square foot hangar and museum to house valuable antique aircraft and other artifacts. The cost to build this facility is projected to be 3 to 3.5 million dollars.
Education ProgramPacific Coast Air Museum provides educational activities related to aviation history. Museum members teach the principles of flight and encourage a hands-on approach to learning about the adventures of flight and the importance of aviation to our society.
Our extensive education program includes tours and aviation classes for school children, Boy Scout Aviation Merit Badge programs, an Air Explorer Scout Post and an Aviation Summer School program.
Aircraft Restoration & AcquisitionsOver the years, the Pacific Coast Air Museum has acquired a large collection of aircraft for restoration and display. Some are on loan from the U.S. Naval Aviation Museum and the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Others were donated to the museum or recovered from the U.S. Air Force storage facility at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and various other places. Each aircraft is lovingly restored by our volunteers and proudly displayed in the museum Air Park.
Our museum has grown and so has our involvement in the community.
