Welcome

We’re happy to announce that our Executive Director position has been filled, and we’re now open for tours on Tuesdays through Fridays from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Please call the museum at 541-543-1068 or send an email to oregonaviation.org@gmail.com to arrange a tour outside those hours. We look forward to seeing you!

Our Heritage is Our Future

Flight…the dream of mankind throughout recorded history, became a reality in the 20th century.  In Oregon, we’ve had all facets of aviation: from historic flights and famous pilots (of both genders) to technological advances.  From fledgling flights and innovations in early design and construction to space-faring astronauts, Oregonians have pursued their dreams of flight.

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.

The Oregon Aviation Historical Society is located at 2475 Jim Wright Way, Cottage Grove, Oregon (see map below). 

Time to Grow!

OAHS has outgrown the current facility. 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.

Did you know the EAA and the homebuilt movement can trace their beginnings back to these same Oregonians? Now more room is needed to display these precious aircraft and artifacts–telling their stories.

We are nearly halfway there

You can have an impact!

Approximately $400,000 will be needed to complete the addition of a 100’ x 100’ hangar next to the existing museum and history center.

It’s crowded in the museum hangar. Please help expand the museum’s capacity by making a tax-deductible donation to the Oregon Aviation Historical Society & Museum at the address below.

You may also donate using your card through the button at the bottom of this page.
All funds generated through this campaign will be used to preserve the legacy created by the pioneering builders and pilots of Oregon and then share with visitors the stories of contributions made by early Oregon aviators.

To leave your legacy and donate to OAHS, you can do so today using the PayPal button found on most pages of this website.
