Consider a Gift to the Annual Fund

Please consider a gift to the Aviation Museum of NH's Annual Fund and help us continue to expand our exhibits and aviation education programs.

 

Dear friends, 

 

Because we know that you value the museum's mission of preserving NH aviation history and inspiring the next generation of aviators, please consider a gift to the museum's Annual Fund. Thanks to the support of the Aviation Museum of NH's members and friends like you, we were able to expand our exhibits and educational programs over the past year.

For the first time, we now have a complete aircraft on display - a beautiful EAA biplane donated by James Jackson of Brookline, NH. Our Elite Flight Simulator is up and running, and museum visitors and students have the opportunity to experience flight in this first rate simulator. We were able to seek notable guest speakers, such as Gary Powers Jr. We hosted movie nights, fly-ins, a wine tasting, and more. We saw greater attendance in our children's programs, including an Easter Egg Hunt, Trick-or-Treating around the museum, and story time for the little ones. Visitation has grown, with 2016 museum attendance at the highest count, ever!

As you know, aviation education is a top priority. The museum launched a unique school outreach program in 2015, and to date has reached over 3,500 students in grades kindergarten through high school. Children learn about the forces and motion of flight and aviation history through hands-on activities and interactive demonstration. Our high school aviation education course commenced its fifth year. This course, which is accredited by three NH school districts, exposes students to careers in aviation through projects, field trips, guest speakers, and more. We would like to continue to expand the course to include more students and school districts, purchase additional classroom materials such as software and laptops to accomodate a growing class size. 

Our 2017 goal is $30,000.  We hope that you will contribute and help us continue fulfuilling our mission.
