Lone Star Flight Museum dedicationThe Lone Star Flight Museum. held its official dedication and ribbon cutting on Saturday in Webster, Texas. Doug Owens, CEO of the new Lone Star Fight Museum and retired Air Force Lt General, lead the ceremony. 

Members of the ROTC  from Sam Rayburn High School presented the colors of the flag. Chaplain Colonel Mack Praytor TXANG delivered the invocation. Scott Rozzell, chairman of the board of directors spoke briefly and Mario Diaz, Director of Aviation for the Houston Airport System addressed the audience. After the ribbon cutting all guests were invited to join in lunch on the patio.

The New Lone Star Flight Museum was designed with an emphasis on S.T.E.M. education. $1,000,000 was invested in the Aviation Learning Center, which includes hands on learning with aviation training, preflight inspection of a Mooney aircraft and a pilot simulated flight.

Dedication had been planned for Labor Day weekend, but due to Hurricane Harvey it was postponed. The first home for the Lone Star Flight Museum was Galveston. Plans to relocate the museum arose out of the devastation from Hurricane Ike in 2008.
