Starting a Museum, # 4
We have started a "Founding Membership" drive, which for $ 25.00/year gives you the honour of being a founding member and supporting the Museum. We will recognize all the founding members when the museum is opened.
Founding Membership Information
We are looking at getting a feasibility study for the museum at a cost of $ 15 to 20,000.00 which would include:
(a) Review of institutional documents;
(b) Creation of Exhibition Narrative
Phase II – Business Planning
(a) Create a preliminary project budget
b) Create a preliminary project schedule
(c) Museum staffing requirements (as related to museum operation)
(d) Market Research of area
(e) Facility Costing, Capital Costs (Preliminary Estimates)
(f) Costs to opening
(g) Initial Operating Costs projection
(h) Research of comparable institutions
This is a lot of money for an upstart museum, but it could be money well spent. This will be discussed at our next board meeting. Our bank account has not grown that large that we have money for the study, we will however keep looking at the possibillity to do it.
Our corporate fundraising department is busy sending out letters to the aerospace industry, btw the department is a "one man show" and consist of "Me" :-)).
We have a proposal for leasing land and/or land and building at Boundary Bay Airport where our museum is going to be located.
Boundary Bay Airport (CZBB) is centrally located in Delta, BC (which is part of the Metro Vancouver area) is about 20 minutes from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and less than 40 minutes to downtown Vancouver, Surrey and the US Border. We can also pre arrange helicopter service from Boundary Bay to downtown heliports.
With its non-congested and accessible location, Boundary Bay Airport offers:
•Excellent FBO services for corporate and private aircraft
•World class helicopter maintenance facilities
•Multiple Flight Training schools for pilots
•Attractive leasing opportunities for business
Since its conception during WWII as a flight training centre for Canadian Air Force pilots, Boundary Bay Airport still is a major flight training hub for local and international pilots. In fact, Boundary Bay Airport is Canada’s 5th busiest airport.
Boundary Bay Airport is owned by the Corporation of Delta and operated under lease by Alpha Aviation Inc. Alpha Aviation Inc. is working with the aviation industry to make Boundary Bay Airport (ZBB) the preferred location for both visiting and locally based corporate aircraft as well as Canada's premier aviation training airport.
