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.

Our facility is located at 2475 Jim Wright Way, Cottage Grove, Oregon. We are open Monday – Thursday 10-4 year round, and in the restoration hangar on Fridays 10-2.
We are also Saturdays (10-4), May through September, with quite a few weekend events coming up in 2018!
Private tours are available by appointment.
We do hope you will join us soon!
