Here's your chance to join the North Central Airlines DC-3 team.  Be one of the crew who helps operate, schedule and maintain one of the world’s most historic aircraft!

Please consider joining one of these groups:

The North Central Airlines Grand Arrival Committee

Join the committee that will help plan the return of North Central Airlines when she lands at Sheboygan County Memorial Airport in August or September, 2017.  Design the program, select the speakers and determine food, entertainment and every aspect of an afternoon/evening to remember!  Committee meetings can be joined via teleconference, so your location doesn’t matter.

The North Central Airlines DC-3 Operations Committee

Keeping a 75 year old DC-3 airworthy requires many committed volunteers.

    We need:
  • Mechanics
  • Type-rated DC-3 pilots with DC-3 currency
  • "Flight attendants"
  • Anyone who wants to help keep North Central Airlines flying!

The North Central Airlines DC-3 Fund Development Committee

Help identify corporations, foundations or individuals who want to partner with one of the only remaining airline DC-3 aircraft flying in airline colors.  By underwriting annual operations, the donor will receive significant media publicity and visibility at each tour stop.
