William Liss

Brandon Morrison

From arrival to departure we had a blast. My son made some new friends today and they are friends with a wealth of knowledge they did not mind sharing at all. The history of these machines is awesome. The availability of them to the public is also very cool. We will be back. Thank you for having us!


Most excellent place. My three years olds were welcomed and made to feel like princesses, albeit princesses that also fly Sea King helicopters. Be sure to chat to the guys running the place and order a cheese burger from the cafe, grilled with freshly ground beef.

Great aircraft to tour. They have a one of a kind dual propulsion aircraft only one in the world. Highly recommend!

Shannon Massey

Best group of historians ever whom have become friends. Definitely the gem in Hickory, please tip your hats and shake the hands with some of our brave veterans. Remember to always be kind it costs zero to educate the next generation on respect. Humbled with a sense of honor to just know some of them, their personal sacrifices should definitely be a testimony to our military, our government including but not limited to the brave souls that our country has lost in battle. PRICELESS ❣️ Experience

Francisco Simoes

David Green

The museum is not very large, but there’s a surprising amount of memorabilia and the volunteers who work here clearly love their subject. Well worth the time spent if you’re a fan of military aviation, especially if you get a chance to chat with the curator.

Wonderfully small but great museum. Staffed by volunteer former military who provide authenticity to their collection. Be sure to check out the machine guns at the other end of the terminal. Not easy to find so ask.

Shirleta Prunty

Kid friendly and very good speaker.

Susan Taylor

Go take your kids into the cockpit of an airplane and let them get a good, upclose look at the high flying objects. Even see how air domination has been used by America over the years. Honor the hero's that made it all possible along the way.
