The Board proposes acquiring a suitable building near Smith Reynolds Airport, Winston-Salem, North Carolina and repurposing the building for dual use as an education center, but also a Phase I museum for the display of aircraft and automobiles. Phase II of the project would be the future acquisition of a larger building on or near Smith Reynolds Airport that would be used to display larger aircraft. Several buildings in the area are available and considered suitable sites.
With sufficient backing, the Board proposes employing CJMW Architecture, an award winning architectural firm based in Winston-Salem that has an international reputation for building, or repurposing buildings, as museums.
The Board is already in contact with this firm, and they have expressed an interest in proceeding with the project.
