The museum is staffed by a dedicated group of volunteers who contribute their time and energy to restoring and operating the museum's fleet of aircraft.

How did I learn to fly? Who needs flight instructors, I had Microsoft Flight Simulator.  ;-)

Bud has been a long time volunteer and can sometimes be found around the CJ-6A, L-29 or L-39 at local events]. Blog Link

Two of an aircraft type flying is better than having just one. With two, you have a breeding pair.

The problem with trailing link gear is that it makes you think you're a better pilot than you really are.




[edit] Staff / Pilots / Associates

Zach - Chief Pilot
Zach - Chief Pilot

Lt. Commander "Z", USN. Fixed-wing MEII, rotor CFII, instructor in the MI-2, MI-24, L-29, L-39, CM-170, SK-70, BA-167 and T-28. F.A.S.T. formation instructor and check pilot for the Red Star Pilot's Association.

Most pilots are either fixed-wing or rotor-wing, like cats and dogs. Z is both – half cat, half dog. ~ Jon

Roma - Fearless Leader
Roma - Fearless Leader

Roma, a former director of the Museum, has over 400 hours in the L-29 and over 300 in the L-39. When he's not flying, Roma is the Dallas County Constable, Precinct 4.

And if you do feel sick, all we ask is that you ''get a good seal on the bag!''

I've got good news and bad news. The bad news is that the ''real'' pilots couldn't make it. The good news is that I've read the book, and I'm pretty sure I can fly it!

Scott - Wiki Sysop
Scott - Wiki Sysop

Scott has sysop'd on-line systems since 1982 and was one of the founders of Matchmaker.com. Scott served in the Air Force at Plattsburgh AFB ('77-'81) maintaining FB-111A and KC-135 flight simulators. He is currently the president of the Colorado Audi TT automobile club.

It's hard to believe just how incredible it is!

Vic - L-39 Pilot
Vic - L-39 Pilot

Vic is a former UPS and corporate pilot. He holds a rating in the L-39.

If at any time you see me leave the airplane, it would be best to follow me out.
