January is the Month to

Celebrate Curtiss


 Curtiss Pusher 2 seat w KW Dec 2011

The first of a slew of exciting additions to the collection has undergone a thorough inspection! The utterly unique 2-seat Curtiss Pusher's current status is EBP, which translates from Aircraft Department parlance as "Everything but Paperwork." As soon as this last step is complete, it will be set aloft. You can tell by the smile on Kermit's face that he is ready to go!

 Curtiss Robin on field


Our second Curtiss all-star is the legendary Robin. E-newsletter readers will recall the feature presented some months ago that tells the remarkable story of the Robin and its extraordinary pedigree. Now the engine overhaul is done, and the OX-5 is eager to go-go-go! Final airframe inspections are complete. Next stop: the skies above Fantasy of Flight.
