U.S. Centennial of Flight Commission
National Plan For the Centennial of Flight Commemoration

 

Section 9 - Capital Improvements and Program Developments


The Centennial of Flight celebration will be the catalyst for the construction of a variety of facilities throughout the country. Some of the facilities will be of substantial construction but temporary in nature; others will be more permanent. The facilities will support a variety of functions and activities. There will be interpretive centers constructed for the purpose of displaying artifacts and providing historical information about the Wright brothers and aviation. These centers will be permanent and will, in some cases, be a part of the National Park system. There will be numerous exhibition facilities constructed for the celebration in 2003. The majority will be temporary facilities with a specific end date for dismantlement. Some will be stationed at a permanent location while others will be mobile and move throughout the country. In addition, most organizations are developing educational, experiential, artistic or scholarly programs for the commemoration year.

The value of both of these elements is provided in this section. The value of the capital improvements and program development is shown in Figure 9 A.
