Volunteers needed to operate flight simulators


The Freeman Army Airfield Museum in Seymour is looking for a few volunteers.

The museum has two flight simulators — a simple one for younger kids and a more sophisticated one for older kids and adults.

Larry Bothe, curator/treasurer of the museum, said neither one is certified by the Federal Aviation Administration to log time, but they sure are fun to fly, and visitors love them.

“We need additional volunteers to operate the simulators and coach visitors on how to fly,” Bothe said. “Since this isn’t formal flight training, it’s not necessary to be a certified flight instructor. Being a current or dormant pilot is helpful but not required.”

The museum is seeking a few people who can volunteer one Saturday a month from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“We will train you to operate the simulators. It’s not difficult, and we have laminated instruction cards for each one,” he said.

Anyone interested in helping should call Bothe at 812-521-7400, email [email protected] or stop by the museum, 1035 A Ave., Seymour, any Saturday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
