What is the driving force behind an organization that is not in the business of making a profit but of providing a service and education to the community?


The contributions of the combined membership of that organization and then strengths which each individual brings to the group - dedication, fellowship, commitment and motivation.

By activating a membership in the Air Classics Museum of Aviation History you choose to play an important role in preserving aviation history. This role may manifest itself in different ways for each person. The members of Air Classics share the common goal of maintaining a sense of aviation history by furthering public appreciation of our aviation heritage.

Air Classics Museum of Aviation History represents a long term commitment to preserving the history of aviation. As a public non-profit organization (501-3C) we depend on our membership and volunteer force to provide funding and man power. Our goal is to build a self supporting "world class" aviation museum to house one of the finest collections of historical aircraft anywhere, but we can't do it without you. Join us today!
