|NHAHS Grant Announcement|
The New Hampshire Aviation Historical Society has been awarded an unrestricted grant of $25,000 from the William Penn Foundation of Philadelphia, PA. The grant, which will contribute toward operating The Aviation Museum of New Hampshire, was based on the recommendation of Tom Haas of Portsmouth, a board member of both organizations.
The NHAHS doubled the size of the Museum in May of 2011 with the addition of the Slusser Aviation Learning Center and is currently proceeding with the development of additional Museum exhibits and an aviation curriculum for high school level students. The Museum is located at 27 Navigator Rd. (formerly 13 East Perimeter Rd.) Londonderry, NH.

The Gee Bee Model A Sport Plane (pictured on our logo) was the first plane built by the Granville brothers of Madison, New Hampshire in Boston, Massachusetts. They built nine in Springfield, Massachusetts followed by a series of sportsters (monoplanes) and finally leading to the famous Gee Bee supersportster racers, one of which established a new world land-air speed record. It was flown by James Doolittle. Click here to read more about the Gee Bees.
