Restoration Shop

The goal of the restoration shop is to get antique aircraft back to flying condition, when possible, using original blueprints and methods of construction.

The restoration shop is home to a large array of tools and machinery all acquired through generous donations.  Tools include a lathe, drill presses, a band saw, a bending brake, a bead blaster, shop air, an antique steel tube cut off machine many power tools and a variety of hand tools.
