HAPPY NEW YEAR!

20101205_83

MAPS will be closed December 31, beginning at 1:00. We will reopen for normal hours on Saturday January 2, 2016.

I would like to thank all of our visitors, members and volunteers for another record breaking year. I am putting together the accomplishments and am amazed at the progress we have made in 2015. We will cover everything that happened in 2015 in the February membership meeting.

We need your help in keeping this ball rolling. If you would like to volunteer, please get with one of the directors or myself. We need a bunch of tour guides and will be working on a lot of construction projects during the winter.

Thanks again for your support. Kim Kovesci, Executive Director

Radiant Heaters Installed

IMG_0919

Six - 60 ft. radiant heaters have been installed in our main hangar by C.R. Kurtz. These heaters are significantly more efficient, less noisy and provide a more consistent heat than the old rotation unit that we have used for many years.

The funding for this very important improvement was provided by The Timken Foundation and GAR Foundation. We want to thank them both for supporting MAPS Air Museum.

 

Fallen Feather Memorial comes to MAPS
