About our Nonprofit Partner

The American Aviation Historical Society was founded in 1956 as a nonprofit educational organization. Their objective is to preserve the rich heritage of American aviation. The society has an extensive collection of books, documents and photographs that are available to researchers and aviation enthusiasts on a wide variety of American aviation history. The American Aviation Historical Society publishes a quarterly Journal and informative AAHS FlightLine that provides interesting information and little known facts associated with American aviation. The Society serves as a catalyst by providing a forum for communication among members having a common interest in aviation.

The American Aviation Historical Society is recognized by the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum as a premiere aviation historical effort. During their 50 plus years of documenting significant events in the industry, coverage has included AirForce, Naval, Marine aircraft and their deployment in World War 1, World War 2, the Korean and Vietnamese conflicts as well as the exciting emergence of civil aviation from the Wright Brothers on the evolution of commercial aviation companies and the aircraft they operated is well represented in both Journal articles and the photo library.
