Fraser resident, Jim Hoyhtya, was recently named Emily Warner Field Aviation Museum Volunteer of the Year. A retired United Airline Captain and long-time aviator, Hoyhtya shares his many talents with Grand County non-profits, including the Grand County Historical Association museum. He has built exhibit cases, helped with the Fantasy of Flight simulators, and donated many hours to aviation education and children’s STEM programs. He always has a smile for aviation museum visitors and makes their visit interesting.
The Emily Warner Field Aviation Museum opened in July 2015. Located in the former Rocky Mountain Airways airline terminal of Granby/Grand County Airport, the museum’s displays, photographs and artifacts tell the fascinating stories of aviation history in Grand County.
One exhibit in the award-winning, free museum is the Granby Airport Pioneers Wall of Fame. The Wall honors local citizen volunteers who in the 1940s began the airport and continued to volunteer their time and talent to improve and maintain the community airport.
