About Us

Here at the Oregon Aviation Historical Society our mission is to collect, preserve, and restore Oregon related aviation artifacts for interpretive and educational display to insure the preservation of Oregon’s rich aviation heritage for future generations.

Did you know that experimental/amateur aviation and aircraft were illegal in the US until 1952?!

Without Oregon pilots this may have never been!

The museum hangar here in Cottage Grove boasts more than 6 pre-war Oregon home built aircraft that help to tell the story of experimental aircraft in the US. Aircraft ranging from a mid-wing Longster and a George Yates Geodetic as well as the Portland School of Engineering 1930 Cirrus Racer!

We also have a plans built Ford Model A powered Pietenpol and the recent addition of an RV3.

To get a better idea of who we are, please take a few moments to watch a short introductory video by clicking HERE.

Our facility is located at 2475 Jim Wright Way, Cottage Grove, Oregon.  We are open Monday -Friday 10-3 year round, and on Saturdays (10-4), May through September. Private tours are available by appointment.

We do hope you will join us soon!
