Anything helps and we appreciate your support.

Play a part in preserving military aviation heritage for future generations.


Your tax-deductible donation will help us fund an Aviation Pavilion to protect our military aviation heritage for future generations.

While the Foundation and its over 170 volunteers have performed a remarkable job in obtaining and restoring the aircraft for over 30 years, the need to provide enclosed facilities is essential.

A constant fundraising effort is required to maintain the museum, acquire aircraft exhibits, improve the facility to better accommodate our visitors to improve their experiences is constant. The Museum receives no government assistance at all. The Museum attributes its success to the generosity of local businesses, individuals, volunteers and members of the Museum that is responsible for Castle Air Museum developing in to a premier showcase of military aviation history, preserved for posterity.

The thousands of hours spent restoring our aircraft can quickly eroded by outdoor weather conditions. Heat, rain, dust and wind take their toll on the aircraft. Furthermore, being primarily an outdoor display museum limits access to the artifacts which cannot be displayed in an uncontrolled environment.

The Museum is working in conjunction with a local commercial builder and contracting firm and conceptual plans have been developed to establish enclosed facilities for the aircraft exhibit display areas. This is Phase One of a multi-phase project which will be 200- by 200-feet, and will serve as an events center available for seminars, reunions, corporate functions, and much more.

High wind gusts, storms, and the brutal summer heat leaves our exposed airplanes open to a wide range of damaging (and sometimes catastrophic) risks.
