Aircraft Restoration Projects

Experts in Aircraft Restoration

Recovering an aircraft is only part of the story. After an aircraft has been recovered, it must be restored in order to be put on display.

Often this a difficult and time consuming task. Typically, much more time will be involved in restoring an aircraft than recovering one (although there have been some exceptions).

Through the tireless dedication of our volunteers (many who have significant experience in aircraft repair with the NC Air National Guard, US Airways, Piedmont Airlines, and others), we are constantly trying to restore our aircraft as historically accurate as possible.

Wide Range of Aircraft Restoration Experience

From scratch building an full-scale 1903 Wright Glider to our D-558 Skystreak, the Museum staff have tackled a wide range of projects.
