Happy 90th birthday to our 1932 Franklin Sport! This little sport trainer received its airworthiness certificate 90 years ago today. Come to the Kelch Aviation Museum to see it in person and learn about its fun history. https://www.kelchmuseum.org/1932-franklin-sport-90/ 26
Funny how big the hangar seems when it’s empty… but not for long! Our aircraft collection has been polished up and rearranged for the annual Pietenpol-Hatz fly-in this weekend! Join us Thursday through Saturday! It is an amazing experience to get to work with these beautiful pieces of history. Thank
We were thrilled to support fellow local non-profit Lower Sugar River Watershed Association and Three Waters Reserve at their event on Saturday! We look forward to working with them in the future – and flying over the beautiful nature reserve is always so special. Check them out!
