Volatus Infrastructure to Support Warbirds of Glory Museum

Aircorps Art Dec 2019


A few days ago, Volatus Infrastructure, LLC announced that it had chosen to support the Warbirds of Glory Museum; its first charitable cause. As most readers will know, this museum and its band of highly skillful, teenage volunteers, is in the process of restoring B-25J Mitchell 44-30733, lovingly referred to as the Sandbar Mitchell due to the airframe having spent many years marooned on a spit of sand in an Alaskan river.

“Preserving the history of aviation is just as important as developing the new technology that is taking the aviation industry by storm,” said Grant Fisk, Co-Founder of Volatus. “I appreciate the restoration work they are doing on Sandbar Mitchell and by coaching the next generation of aviation enthusiasts they are ensuring the lifeline of the industry.”

“The Warbirds of Glory Museum is a small museum doing great things in large part due to its many dedicated volunteers and supporters,” said Allen Tucker, Board Chair of the Museum. “We appreciate the vote of confidence from Volatus in what we are doing and look forward to a long partnership.”

Volatus Infrastructure is a member of the Warbirds of Glory Museum. “The membership allows us to stay up-to-date with what the Museum is doing as well as what their current needs are to keep programs running,” said Fisk. Memberships start at just $35 per year. Founded in 2013, the Warbirds of Glory Museum was formed to restore and fly period aircraft and offer the unique educational opportunity to understand the Second World War experience while mentoring youth in mechanical skills, aircraft restoration, and American values. Over the years the Museum has educated a number of youths in both aircraft restoration and history and is particularly proud that a good number of them have joined the aircraft maintenance industry and remain committed adult volunteers at the Museum.
