Aviation Museum closed to

public through Saturday, July 18!

To Our Museum Community and the General Public:

Out of an abundance of caution, the Aviation Museum of N.H. will be closed to the public until July 18, 2020.  This decision was made by the Museum's board of directors in support of public health efforts to limit the spread of the Coronavirus/COVID-19.  We currently aren't aware of any cases of Coronavirus exposure among our visitors, volunteers, or staff. However, board members chose to temporarily close the Aviation Museum to minimize the risk to all in our community as well as the general public.  We plan to resume our regular schedule of public hours Saturday, July 18, 2020, subject to further evaluation.

 Museum Bringing VAN's RV-12iS Build Program To Manchester Schools

The Aviation Museum of New Hampshire, along with the Manchester School of Technology and Tango Flight, is developing a program in which a team of high school students will build and complete an actual flyable airplane during the 2019-20 school year, and then another aircraft each school year following that.

RV-12iSIn a rapidly changing global economy, it's important that education provides young people with the tools, training, and ability to think creatively and to innovate. For students at the Manchester School of Technology, the experience of building an actual flyable airplane will provide a unique capstone project — one that takes STEM-related disciplines such as math, science, and engineering out of the classroom and into the practical realities of the workshop.  The Aviation Museum's student plane-build partnership with the Manchester School of Technology and Tango Flight will involve the community in supporting STEM-related projects to prepare young people for tomorrow. It allows everyone to work together in an exciting, challenging, and possibly life-changing way. FOR MORE INFO CONTACT JEFF RAPSIS: This email address is being protected from spambots.
