Eddie Ross Restoration Center
The Eddie Ross Restoration Center was dedicated to Edwin F. Ross, of Austin, Texas, who took delivery of the first Staggerwing. The Dedication took place during the 1984 Convention with Eddie, his wife Peg, and the Honorary Trustee Leddy Greever and his wife Norma, from Wichita, all present.

The original 3600 square foot facility consists of a 2400 square foot hangar area, a shop and office area. Its intended use is for restoration, repair, and maintenance of Museum aircraft and parts, for Safety and Maintenance Seminars, and for a place where volunteers can work on Museum projects.

This hangar is also home to the Staggerwing Air Academy, which is one of only two satellite programs of the highly acclaimed EAA Air Academy http://www.youngeagles.org/programs/airacademy.  Our camps are for ages 10-14, and are held twice a year, in the spring and fall. Our last camp was held on Oct. 3-5, with 21 students attending. Projects included gliders, wing ribs, parachutes, hot-air balloons, and model rocketry. The theory of flight discussions covered the advanced topics of aerodynamics and stability. Over half of the students received their first airplane ride.

Students attend the Staggerwing Air Academy free of charge, as this program is sponsored by the Scot Perry Education Fund - http://www.staggerwing.com/contributions/scholarships.shtml.
