The American Museum of Aviation’s role is to support future generations by brining aviation to education -
After the donation of N512DA by Scroggins Aviation, a former Delta Airlines Boeing 727-232, the American Museum of Aviation wanted to place the aircraft on loan for Educational purposes for our future generations of aviation mechanics & maintenance personnel for a hands-on learning experience.
The aircraft was placed into position at the Victor Valley College A&P Aviation School at the SCLA Airport in Victorville, CA the former George AFB in August 2012. This Boeing 727 is completely operational with the APU, the interior is complete in every way just as it came in off a flight right down to the beverage carts. Even the lavatories are completely operational. The cockpit is complete with all instrumentation and radios along with the flight engineers station and headsets. The APU can be started from the flight engineers station as it was during normal operation.
This Boeing 727 will present a wonderful experience for the school and its students for the hands-on training experience on this operational modern day airliner.
Future loan plans to the school are that of a Wright Radial Engine R-3350 and a complete propeller and hub assemblies from a Douglas DC-7C and a modern day CFM Jet Engine.
Instructors Marty Powell and Art Gee gave us a full tour of their facilities on Monday August 27, 2012. This is the place to train for your future in the aviation maintenance field. We were extremely impressed!

B727 & Classroom Workstations
Below are some pictures of the B727 and the classroom work stations. The work stations are made from the bowling lanes of the old George AFB bowling center now closed. Very unique and very durable.
