We are dedicated to maintaining the facts and artifacts of the Golden Age of Aviation. The Museum provides a unique opportunity for all generations to learn and appreciate aviation history. We achieve this by adding new exhibits and aircraft on a regular basis. The interior of the museum has artifacts and memorabilia ranging from WWII to present day, including a display about NC natives Bill and George Preddy provided by the Preddy Foundation. Models are on display that show how aircraft design changed from the Wright Flyer to the F-18 Hornet.

Take a close look at ejection seats and flight suits. Collection of aircrafts outside to view up close!

The Wall of Honor is inside, too, honoring members of our organization and local people that are veterans. Our Memorial Wall recognizes those that have passed.
