The airplane is as American as Apple Pie! The “First Flight” was on American soil. The American Aviator was a dashing “Yank” portraying adventure, desire, freedom and honor.
It is this legacy that created our mission to acquire, restore and preserve American aircraft and artifacts. Amongst these relics lives the tales and lore of man and of machine, of our Legends and our accomplishments!
In 1973 the collection began with one airplane, the Beech Staggerwing. From these humble beginnings the collection has grown and prospered to the more than 160 aircraft on display today at Chino Airport.
