Aircraft Restoration

Restoring the Past, Building Toward the Future

Dozens of talented, dedicated and highly skilled volunteers donate countless hours of their time restoring aircraft so they can take their place telling the story of Kansas aviation. 

We have a number of restoration projects in process including

  • Air Midwest’s first airplane, a Cessna U-206
  • Blanche Noyes' C-37
  • Cessna 310

In addition to the many rare and one-of-a-kind aircraft already in our possession, several vintage planes have been promised as soon as a hangar is available.

B-52 Restoration

In 2018, the Sedgwick County Commission awarded the Kansas Aviation Museum with a $50,000 grant towards the restoration of our B-52D.  The restoration committee has started on plans and is currently working on a schedule for restoration.  If you are interested, please contact the museum for more information on how to get involved or our restoration, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator

Meetings will tentatively be the 3rd Saturday of each month beginning at 11:00 a.m. , however they are currently on hold due to COVID-19.  Please check back for any potential changes and for the most current information.
