Scope and Contents:
The aircraft registration cards include the following types of information: serial number, model and engine information, license number, who the aircraft was sold to, subsequent history and final deposition of the aircraft.
Biographical / Historical:
The Federal Aviation Administration possesses documents and records relating to aircraft registered in the United States between 1926-1946. NASM wanted a Master Historical Listing of all aircraft registered in the United States, and so an agreement between the FAA and NASM allowed for a contractor, Mr. Richard Allen, to prepare this Master Listing for NASM from FAA records. Allen ended his affiliation with this project circa 1993, when there was no more money for a contractor. However, Dan Hagedorn, Archives Division, has continued the project from where Allen left off. However, instead of transcribing the information from the FAA records to cards, the information is now being entered into a database.

Date:
bulk 1980-2001
Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of 4.5 cubic feet of organizational records related to the National Aerospace Cadets and the Delmarva Space Training Center, including historical information, promotional materials, correspondence, financial records, building drawings, and educational materials. The collection also includes artwork depicting various cadet insignias and nine scrapbooks, mainly containing photographs.
Biographical / Historical:
Ken Beatty founded the National Aerospace Cadets in 1980 as a nonprofit organization that aimed to teach children skills for living in the space age, such as astronomy, computer science, electronics, model rocketry, and celestial navigation. Both youth members and adult leaders earned "ranks" as they acquired skills and passed tests. Mr. Beatty also ran the Delmarva Space Training Center from the basement of his home which served as an educational center for the cadets. The Delmarva Space Training Center contained a book and video library, a Space Shuttle simulator that was constructed by cadets, many models, and hands-on activities and kits. Mr. Beatty planned to find a large, permanent facility to house the Delmarva Space Training Center, but this was never realized due to a lack of funding. The National Aerospace Cadets maintained a membership of about 250 young people during its lifetime and had chapters in other states. Ken Beatty and the National Aerospace Cadets represents a portion of the public reaction to the Space Shuttle program and one version of how the advances of the Shuttle program would affect the future. The organization is also interesting because it represents a grassroots effort that works from the bottom-up, as opposed to a topdown structured organization such as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
