Volunteers are Needed and Appreciated!

We like to have two volunteers for docent/working duty for each day the museum is open:

  • Thursday – 11 am to 3 pm
  • Friday – 11 am to 3 pm
  • Saturday – 11 am to 3 pm

Volunteers can be scheduled for regular shifts, but if a family or medical issue comes up backup volunteers are needed to fill in. We have a few dedicated members who can be counted on to fill in in a pinch, but we can always use more backup volunteers.

Getting into the volunteer docent program is easy and painless. After signing up, a new volunteer will be given a training manual containing written information about a docent’s duties and a video outlining docent procedures. New volunteers also get on-the-job training with an experienced docent.

Volunteering as a docent can be an enjoyable experience, as docents regularly meet interesting people. You never know who’s going to drop in.

Thank you so very, very much for the wonderful tour given by Stu today! We all learned so much not just about aviation, but also so much history, and our boys enjoyed every minute of it! I can’t thank you enough for the personal treatment – just excellent!
