Support our fall projects at The Hangar Flight Museum! Which projects are happening this fall?
The tent hangar is finally being repaired, and building accessibility improvements are set to begin soon. This fall we will also be completing another round of truss repairs to keep our historic building healthy and strong. The stolen bronze plaques from our property are also ready to be replaced with aluminum pieces that will be less likely to be stolen again. This will keep the integrity of their purpose, and the plaques are still easy to read with raised letters, but are made with a less intrinsically valuable material. The tin toy plane sculptures from the Calgary International Airport have also arrived at The Hangar and are on display on the mezzanine level.
Whew, we did say that we’ve been busy, and will continue to be busy as these projects are completed. We can’t forget to mention the progress that has been made with new exhibit design as well. Take a trip to The Hangar and come see our new exhibits on the Canadian effort in the space industry, Canadian airshow teams, and a full listing of all of Canada’s Aviation Hall of Fame inductees. These three exhibits were created in partnership with CAHF – we’re so pleased to be their home, and having some of their artifacts on display helps us to jointly tell the story of aviation heritage in Canada.
As you may be able to tell, having this many projects on the go, all in the same season, requires us to have dedicated funding sources and support from our community – aviation and history enthusiasts. We’re very grateful to have your support as we stretch to meet our goals and become a premiere destination to explore, engage, and experience the transformational power of flight. We are inspired by bold and adventurous stories, we are passionate about bringing aviation history to life, and we work in service to our communities. We do all of this only with the help of supporters just like you! Please share this campaign with your networks to help us reach our goals and complete all of our fall projects. Thank you for your participation in our growth – because of you, we’re flying – never falling!
