Save a Boeing 727 Cockpit Procedures Trainer! (Canceled)
Please help us save and restore a true aviation relic. This is an original Boeing 727 Cockpit Procedures Trainer used by a US airline.
Please help us restore and preserve a piece of American aviation history!
We are a very small group of aviation enthusiasts who try and preserve aviation artifacts from early airline advertisements to unique one of a kind training aids such as this Boeing 727 Cockpit Procedures Trainer.
Our goal is to transport this trainer to the Kansas City area and restore it to functioning status while preserving its condition as close to original as possible. Our goal once complete is to share this unique piece of history with the public by placing it on display at aviation museums and airshows across the Midwest for educational purposes as well as some photo opportunities.
We cannot complete this project without the support of the Kickstarter community. Items like this take quite a bit of money to restore and preserve for future generations. The finished value is in the preservation of history and not the monetary value of the completed piece. It is most likely that the trainer will cost more to restore than it is actually worth however it is worth preserving nonetheless.
What your support will help pay for:
- Help to finance purchase of the Boeing 727 Cockpit Trainer
- Shipping of the Boeing 727 Cockpit Trainer
- Repair of instrumentation
- Electrical and computer refurbish
- Mounting the Trainer onto a new permanent presentation trailer
- Historical research and museum quality displays to accompany the trainer while it is on display.
Please take a look at the photos and thank you for your support!
Risks and challenges
