The Niagara Aerospace Museum is pleased to announce that we are expanding our display site. We will be adding 2 more aircraft, a 1936 Cunningham Hall GA-36 built in Rochester, NY, and a 1929 Consolidated Fleet Model 1. Both are pictured below. Expansion plans will include a theater, flight simulator, and an expanded Consolidated Aircraft display. We should be ready in mid-December for the public. Your support of the museum is appreciated and if you would like to help support the expansion and renovations, financial support is welcome.
The museum was visited by Sarah Cruddas and James Bolton from the UK. They are filming a documentary about Bell Aircraft, Cobham, and Moog’s contributions to the space program, past and present.
October 17, 1947, Capt. Charles E. Yeager flies the Bell XS-1 through the sound barrier. This achievement is just another example of the genius of the men and women of Western New York and the two Bell Test Pilots, Jack Woolams and Chalmers “Slick” Goodlin, who performed 36 test flights preparing the aircraft for Yeager’s historic flight.
The Niagara Aerospace Museum and the Wing and Rotor Club of WNY are pleased to announce a Radio Controlled Aircraft Building Course.
The course is open to children ages 12 to 17.
An information meeting for parents and students is scheduled for Saturday, October 25, 2014 at the museum @ 1:00 PM. Classes start in January.
