Restoration

 

Aircraft acquisition at the FWAM museum starts with our collection policy. When a potential aircraft acquisition is brought to our attention, we look to our collection policy to determine the aircraft’s suitability for addition to the collection. If an aircraft meets the collection policy, we can start to consider leading up to restoration in the maintenance of the airframes. The key to a successful acquisition is planning. All aspects of acquiring an aircraft have cost considerations that need to be determined and funded before any action items occur. We move through project planning, fundraising, and finally, we schedule and execute delivery. Each aircraft is different, but we have found this process to work for us over the years.
