2016 is the 35th anniversary year of the National Test Pilot School we are pleased to announce that the 35th Anniversary Painting by acclaimed aviation artist Michael Machat has been delivered to the school and is proudly on display in the front lobby. Titled "Traditions and Transitions", the painting celebrates many of the traditional aircraft that have served the school over its 35 year history along with several new aircraft that are transitioning the school into the future. Obviously not every single aircraft ever used at the school could be featured but if you look close you are sure to see some of your favorites!

Prints of the painting are available to anyone who would like to purchase one at a price of $40 for a regular unsigned print, $80 for an artist signed and numbered print (500 available), and $100 for a signed and numbered artist proof (50 available). Specific print numbers can be requested subject to availability. The purchase price includes a shipping tube but shipping costs are in addition to the purchase price and will be determined at the time of sale based on destination. Contact Lynda or Sonnett in the front office to arrange a purchase.

Join NTPS is celebrating its long and proud 35 year history!
