The restoration hangar was completed in 1989. It contains 11,200 square feet of open space. This has been organized into working areas for machining, sheet metal fabrication, engine restoration, welding, and storage of aircraft parts, fasteners, sheet goods, paints and chemicals. Space is also provided for housing museum vehicles and equipment. The center of the hangar is kept open for aircraft restoration projects.
