Hannah Has Wings!
https://fb.watch/aka89tqfMN/ Our Archivist and Event Coordinator, Hannah Shickles, made her first solo flight yesterday on her way to earning her private pilot’s license. She flew a 1945 Aeronca Champ 7AC with certified flight instructor Elroy E Hilbert II. Crosswind at 16kts and gusts to 20kts. Impressive!

What We Do On Slower Days
Ever wonder what happens at the museum on slower days? Wonder no more! There’s always something cool in the works. Swing by this week – the museum is open 10am to 4pm Wednesdays through Sundays, and admission is always free! https://fb.watch/ak9GvHcldY/
A big part of running an aviation museum is keeping everything clean. Today we are dusting airplane wings, and some of these biplanes are awfully high off the ground! Your support keeps everything bright and shiny. Donate today: https://www.kelchmuseum.org/contribute/
