Only the second one of its kind in the U.S., the Aviation Learning Center at the Lone Star Flight Museum immerses visitors in the energy and excitement of flight through a hands-on learning experience.

We are looking for passionate aviation enthusiates who want to give back to the Houston community and become a volunteer at the new Lone Star Flight Museum!

Regular readers of From the Flight Deck will remember that last summer the museum received a donation related to the combat career of 2nd Lt. Jack Hillary, one of the pilots who flew the B-17 “Thunderbird” in World War II.
