Volunteers at the Texas
Air & Space Museum...
Yes, you are qualified! And,
you are needed.
Ten to twenty years from now, when the
Texas Air & Space Museum is drawing thousands of I-40 visitors
per year, displaying over 100 air and space exhibits, and
providing a career boost to every Panhandle youngster who gets
the opportunity to "witnesses our passion," you'll be able to
recall the days in 2013 when the Texas Air & Space Museum was
only a dream, had no home, parked its four aircraft on borrowed
land and had only one thousand visitors per year. Now is the
time to join us as we build a monument to the past and future of
air and space technology.
What kind of volunteers do we need?
These are experienced pilots, aircrew
members, mechanics, hobbyists, past or present service men and
women, past or present airline employees, past or present
aviation workers of any kind, and, just a few of us who are
plain and simple aviation nuts. You'll lead tour groups through
the museum, or, you'll just remain in a specific area to answer
questions and make visitors to Amarillo feel at home. (Need
training? We've got that too.)
These people can be aviation know it alls,
aviation know nothings, or people right in the middle. These
people just have a desire to contribute to the success of the
museum while rubbing shoulders with not only dozens of
aviation-savvy volunteers, but, also with the thousands of
aviation enthusiasts who, in the year 2012, came to the museum
from twenty-two states and eleven foreign countries. These
people just want to see Amarillo visitors leave the city with
some of the best memories of their trip. You will welcome
guests, open mail, answer the telephone and keep the office
These people know or want to know more
about air and space technology inside and out. You can lead or
join a team that is restoring an aircraft to museum display
quality, or, you can help restore a flyer that will soon take to
the skies once again. Experience optional. Enthusiasm required!
Can you spend one day each week or even one
day each month helping folks much like yourself make sure that
the museum looks attractive to out of town guests? The museum
needs all kinds of volunteers that can respond on a schedule or
respond 'on call' to help keep the Texas Air & Space Museum
looking "world class." You can help. Just ask.
When do volunteers work?
Volunteers work whenever they're able. Some
work one to five days each week. Some work one to ten days each
month. Some respond only when needed to help out with scheduled
group tours. Some come in on a specific schedule or they just
come in when called. And, aircraft restoration work can take
place when the specific aircraft team can establish suitable
times that work for all team members. There's a time and place
So, are you needed?
Yes, you certainly are needed and,
yes, you do have qualifications that can contribute to
the success of the Texas Air & Space Museum. Call the museum and
ask questions. And, check this website regularly to learn about
current and specific needs for volunteers.
