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 never have changed!
The museum hangar here in Cottage Grove boasts more than six 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.
