Volunteer

No experience in aviation? No problem! We welcome anyone who is interested in learning and lending a hand. Our squadron is run 100% through member volunteers. Everything we accomplish is through the hard work and dedication of our members and we welcome new faces. 

What kind of volunteer opportunities are available? We have several different volunteer opportunities: 

PILOTS

We currently have four planes under our squadron: C-47 Bluebonnet Belle, SNJ/T-6 Trainer, L-17 Navion & the PT-19. Our pilots are given the opportunity to fly throughout the year both in and out of Texas.



MECHANICS

Since we try to keep our pilots busy flying our planes, the mechanics are never idle. They hold themselves to the highest standards for restoring and maintaining these WWII planes.

CREW CHIEFS

Our crew chiefs have several responsibilities to make sure the flights are conducted safely and everything is in working order. This includes fueling, pre-flight inspections and passenger briefings.

EVENT STAFF

Our event staff accompany the flight crew or travel on their own to help staff the events we attend. Some will work the PX, others will give tours on the planes and help event set-up/clean-up.


 

AIRCRAFT RIDE SALES

We love to take people up for a ride in our planes! We need volunteers who will work hard to fill our flights every time we are at an event or host a ride day at our hangar.

MARKETING & WEBSITE

We are always in need of volunteers who have the background and/or the passion to help us market our organization through our website and social media. If this is your cup of tea, come join us!

FUNDRAISING

Have a knack for fundraising? We are 100% funded through the generous donations we receive at our museum, events and fundraisers.

BLUEBONNET AIRSHOW

This is our biggest event and volunteers are needed in every area. Being a volunteer also gets you free admission!

MUSEUM

Our museum staff greet our visitors at the hangar and answer any questions they have during their visit. The museum houses several displays of WWII artifacts and the history behind them. We also have a small gift shop.
