Liberty Aviation Museum recruiting volunteers

Liberty Aviation Museum Director Jeff Sondles addressing a tour group from the Catawba Island Club on Saturday. 

The Liberty Aviation Museum, adjacent to the Erie-Ottawa International Airport in Port Clinton, opened in July of 2012. A year and a half later, the museum is already undergoing a major expansion.

The hangar being constructed behind the existing buildings will house the Ford Tri-Motor restoration project and visiting historical aircraft, and will be the winter exhibit area for the Museum’s fully restored PT boat. This will allow more space in the existing part of the Museum for new exhibits and various events. Two historical organizations have recently contacted the Museum about being the permanent home for their collections.

The Challenger Center specifically designed this simulation program to provide an authentic encounter that increases the principles of teamwork, responsible decision-making, problem-solving and communication. Students were immersed in a realistic Mission Control and Space Station environment with computer consoles, communication headsets, continuous messages on the loud speakers, electronic messages, teammates they could only see on video monitors, emergency sounds and flashing lights and hands-on activities at science stations.
