Our Mission

Our mission is to educate, remember, preserve, and restore authentic military aviation history.
As an educational non-profit 501(c)(3) organization run almost entirely by volunteers, the Arizona Commemorative Air Force Museum’s existence depends on your help.

Here is how you can keep both our museum and wartime memories alive. (To learn more about our 501(c)(3) foundation, the American Airpower Heritage Foundation of Arizona, Inc, click here.)


Your financial contributions help preserve and restore some of the rarest combat planes in the world.
