Chuck Stout
Chuck Stout Speakers Bureau - Wings Museum

The museum’s Curator has been involved in both aerospace and museum work his entire adult life. Chuck learned to fly as a teenager and has been an active pilot ever since, but ironically, has never flown for a living. However, he has helped to design, build, and test satellites, helped to write and illustrate dozens of books and online courses to train pilots, created scores of museum exhibits, and given hundreds of presentations on science and aerospace topics. After volunteering for decades, Chuck now works full time for Wings Over the Rockies. He’s passionate about encouraging Americans to improve their critical thinking skills, and especially likes sharing his interest in aerospace history. Whether in an elementary school classroom or a senior center, his lively presentations encourage interaction and keep audiences engaged, interested, and entertained.
