Navigator Development Group Inc. was proud to be a Platinum sponsor at the 21st Annual Army Aviation Museum Golf Classic fundraiser at Silver Wings Golf Course.
According to museum officials, funds raised through corporate and hole sponsorship's will allow the restoration of aircraft 446 to the “Huey Hog” configuration. It will join the line-up of the B and C model gunships, helping to complete the entire evolutionary development.
Founded in 1956, the U.S. Army Aviation Museum maintains a collection of more than 160 military aircraft, including one of the largest collections of military helicopters in the world. According to the museum’s Web site, approximately 50 restored, historic and one-of-a-kind aircraft, are displayed inside the Museum's 70,000 square feet of exhibit space and outside on the grounds.
“The collection includes many significant examples of early research efforts and developments in rotary wing technology and the evolution of the helicopter. Our public galleries represent the Army's involvement in military aviation from the beginning days with the Wright brothers and the early combat aircraft of World War I, up to the highly technological machines such as the AH-64 Apache and the UH-60 Blackhawk flown by Army Aviators today.
The Museum also tells the human side of Army Aviation and features memorabilia and photo essays that capture the human spirit of our proud heritage.”
