Face To Face Meetings Presentation Face To Face Meetings Presentation Presentation Transcript

  • Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum
  • An Amazing Aviation Heritage
  • Various Attempts at Public Display
  • The GSLASM pulls it all together!
    Hangar number two originally served as a place of manufacture and storage of Curtiss-Wright aeroplanes. Later on the recommendation of Charles Lindbergh it was used by Transcontinental Air Transport (later TWA) as their first base in St. Louis. During World War Two, the Army Air Corps commandeered it and moved the Parks College Air Cadet Program there. Since then the hangar has housed many different aviation businesses including an aircraft stripping and painting facility. Now the hangar is home to the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum (GSLASM.)
  • What is our Vision?
  • How can we realize our Vision?
  • What are our Near-Term Obstacles?
    A sound and secure building
    Our facility was built in 1929, so as you can guess, it needs help!
    Proper interstate signage
    Our decrepit toilet facilities are disqualify us from getting this
    Education of children and adults alike regarding our rich aviation heritage
    Only open two-days per week due to the lack of sufficient volunteer staff
    Promote growth within the Greater St. Louis region by being a world-class museum
    Lack of funds; lack of interest
  • What are our Long-Term Needs?
    New Corporate Sponsorship
    Our largest sponsors were TWA and McDonnell Douglas (both gone)
    Recognition and Cooperation by/from Local Groups
    The Museum Board is new. It is time to slough off old prejudices
    Refurbishment of Hangar Two
    Might still get some Stimulus Money that we requested, but probably not.
    The Re-building of the Museum Collection
    Volunteers, Enthusiasm, Community & Money
    A Purpose-Built Museum Complex
    Federal & State Funding, Foundation Bequests & Wealthy Philanthropists
