Museum Volunteers

Volunteers have been the heart of all our accomplishments.

We have become one of the world’s leading aviation museums with the help of volunteers from all over the world. Join us and be a part of this tradition of excellence - while helping provide high quality programs and services to our visitors.

EAA AirVenture Museum Docents
(Hosts/hostesses and tour guides for Museum visitors)

Our Museum Docents come from all walks of life, professional and non-professional. Most importantly, they bring a variety of talents, skills and interests to the Museum. There's no need to be an aviation expert to play a vital role in this activity, training is provided.

Some ways that you can participate:

  • Greet visitors and provide important information about the EAA AirVenture Museum
  • Participate in the annual EAA AirVenture convention
  • Serve as a tour guide for scheduled group tours

Meet new friends and visitors from all over the world as an AirVenture Museum Docent.


Pioneer Airport Volunteers

The Golden Age of Aviation is still alive at Pioneer Airport. Take a trip back into history as a volunteer at this 1920’s and 30’s style grass strip airfield. Open from May through October, our volunteers promote "grassroots" aviation through a variety of ground support operations. Contact the museum@eaa.org.

All of our pilots at Pioneer Airport are volunteers. At the present time we do not require additional pilots for weekend operations. Volunteer pilots with extensive tailwheel experience and, more importantly, time make a regular weekday commitment are invited to send resumes to Sean Elliott, Director of Flight Operations at selliott@eaa.org


Kermit Weeks Hangar Volunteers

Share the satisfaction of helping restore and maintain the flying aircraft of the EAA collection. Antiques, Classics and Warbird aircraft are kept flying with the support of EAA’s volunteer hangar crew. Volunteers also play a major part in restoring the EAA’s annual Sweepstakes airplane to pristine condition. Work takes place on Wednesday evenings and Saturdays throughout the year. For more information contact Aircraft Maintenance at 920-426-4843 or via e-mail at museum@eaa.org.

Museum Collections Volunteers

Volunteer opportunities of many types exist in the Museum Collections department. Short-term help is useful in late July and late August to help position collection aircraft before and after AirVenture. At other times, most projects require a minimum two-week commitment. Projects can often be tailored to suit the volunteer's interests and/or capabilities. Contact Ron Twellman at (920) 426-5917 or via e-mail rtwellman@eaa.org.

Library Volunteers

The EAA Library is looking for volunteers, who should be able to operate a computer and be familiar with Windows and MSWord.  It would also be useful, but not necessary to be able to navigate the internet. Projects include working with the EAA Corporate Archives, photo archival storage, inventory of donations, book inventory, newsletter filing, and photo copying old newspapers. If interested, please contact: Susan Lurvey, EAA Library/Archives Manager, slurvey@eaa.org, (920) 426-4848.
