Volunteers are the backbone of our museum. Volunteering at the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum gives you the opportunity to learn more about U.S., Marine Corps and aviation history; befriend others with similar interests (including many veterans who served as pilots and aircrew); and, serve your community. We will teach you everything you need to know.
The Museum has the largest collection of historical aircraft flown by Marine Corps aviators in the world as well as thousands of artifacts from World War I to present day. Thousands of local, national and international guests visit each year. Currently there are 31 aircraft on display. New for 2018 is an exhibit on Military Working Dogs and on World War II flying ace and Medal of Honor recipient, Joe Foss.
We are recruiting for the following volunteer opportunities:
Docents (tour guides)
Education program assistance
PR and marketing support
Gift shop sales support
Restoration and maintenance of historical aircraft
All training is provided. Our volunteer roster includes people from 16 to 95 years of age, many of whom are veterans who served as military pilots and air crew. All who enjoy learning about and sharing history with others are welcome.
