Aviation Week - HOUSTON — New Lone Star Flight Museum CEO Douglas H.

His first to-do as he moves into his new position is to fundraise for the museum while it transfers into its new $35 million, 130,000-square-foot home at Houston’s Ellington Airport.

GALVESTON, TX (KTRK) -- Inside a hangar at Galveston's Scholes International Airport, you'll find an aircraft exhibit unlike any other in southeast Texas. The Lone Star Flight Museum boasts a collection of planes from World War II to the Vietnam War era. Larry Gregory is the museum's president.

Although it has since reopened, the Lone Star Flight Museum in Galveston sustained heavy damage from Hurricane Ike back in 2008. Most airworthy planes were flown out of harm’s way in advance, but many static displays were damaged or destroyed. The museum is moving inland to new facilities at Ellington Airport, and the new museum comes with a new CEO.


One of the cornerstone educational programs at the new Lone Star Flight Museum will be the Aviation Learning Center (ALC). The second such center in the country (The first is in Seattle’s Museum of Flight), the ALC will help teachers engage students via an interactive program that entertains and educates at the same time. The ALC’s experiential learning provides a fun, hands-on format that emphasizes critical thinking, scientific inquiry, problem solving and technical reading and writing skills.


After spending 30 years in Galveston, the Lone Star Flight Museum is preparing to land at a new site - Houston's Ellington Airport.
