County Council against another Paine Field museum


December 23, 2015

The Historic Flight Foundation offered concept designs for a proposed Historic Aviation Center at Paine Field. Designs for the campus included 150,000 square feet of museums, education and support facilities to accommodate nonprofit organizations focused on historic operating aircraft.

The Snohomish County Council has voted against a proposed historic aircraft aviation center at Paine Field.

The founder of Historic Flight Foundation had proposed a five-building Historic Aviation Campus at the airport to attract exhibits and tourists from around the world. He had worked on the project for two years.

Key to the proposal, which soured airport officials and a County Council majority, was inclusion of a $1 per year lease for more than 14 acres of airport property.

Several local leaders had endorsed it, including Mayor Jennifer Gregerson and the Mukilteo City Council.
