Please join us on July 10th for what promises to be a most interesting presentation by Jeffery Bass of local aviation pioneer Stanley Hiller, Jr.
The Hiller Aviation Museum, founded and opened to the public in 1998 by helicopter designer and inventor Stanley Hiller, Jr., features over 50 aircraft from over 100 years of aviation history. The museum celebrates the adventurousness and innovation of aviation pioneers whose creativity made the dream of flight a reality. In his presentation, Jeff Bass shares the little known story of a Bay Area legend of aviation history, Stanley Hiller, Jr., and the lore of some of the museum's interesting aircraft.
Jeff Bass has been a museum professional for over thirty years. He served as director of planetarium and astronomy programs at Cranbrook Institute of Science, in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. He was also VP of Education, Public Programs and IMAX at Milwaukee Public Museum. Along the way, Jeff acquired his Private Pilot license and developed aviation-themed programs at various institutions before arriving in San Carlos, California, in 2007, as the President and CEO of the Hiller Aviation Museum.
