Our Heritage is Our Future
From fledgling flights and innovations in early design and construction to space-faring astronauts, Oregonians have pursued their dreams of flight. These innovators were eager to make flying affordable and accessible to all- later leading to the creation of the FAA’s Experimental certification category!
The goal of the Oregon Aviation Historical Society is to collect, preserve, and restore aviation artifacts for interpretive and educational display and to ensure the preservation of Oregon’s rich aviation heritage for future generations.
You Can Make History!
We’re expanding! Through the efforts of a dedicated crew of volunteers, the museum has just completed restoration of six additional heritage aircraft that tell the incredible story of Oregon’s daring aviators. But we can’t fit this much history in our current hangar, so we’re fundraising for a 100’ x 100’ hangar next to the existing museum.
You can have a part by leaving a tax-deductible donation using the PayPal link at the bottom of this page. All funds generated will be used to preserve the pioneering builders’ and pilots’ legacy and to share their stories.
Come for a visit! We are open Tuesdays through Fridays, 10-4. We are also available for private tours available at other times with advance notice.
We’re located at 2475 Jim Wright Way in Cottage Grove, OR, adjacent to Jim Wright Field Cottage Grove State Airport (K61S). We’re just east of Row River Rd on the south side of Jim Wright Way, just before the Cottage Theatre. For pilots, the airport has a lovely Welcome Center and loaner vehicle.
