"On a total of 15,000 m2 of museum space, many dedicated members of both associations strive to constantly add new exhibits and improve the offerings for our museum visitors. We often come up against personnel and financial limits, as our museum is supported solely by visitor income and donations. One of our biggest supporters is our local authority, which, as the owner of the museum property, is providing the financial framework for the renovation of the historic building complex with its inner courtyard as well as the planned addition of a 1300m2 hall for large objects. With its planned completion in the fall of 2016, there will be space for more aircraft in the new halls. The museum is currently negotiating with a major lender for the loan of up to 12 unique aircraft to Rechlin, the transportation, assembly and insurance of which our association will have to manage both financially and in terms of personnel.
Are you a skilled craftsman and interested in actively working in our museum? Then you've come to the right place in the association that runs our museum. We are looking for both young and experienced older people to actively support us in further expanding our exhibition and restoring our exhibits. Whether you are a painter, metal worker, carpenter, commercial artist etc. or, ideally, an aircraft mechanic - you are very welcome.
Do you think the preservation and expansion of our museum is important and want to support the acquisition of new and cost-intensive exhibits? Do you know other potential sponsors of our museum idea or would you like to approach and inspire them together with us? Then why not get involved in our support association. With your cooperation and/or donations, you will make a significant contribution to ensuring the further expansion of our museum in the future.
