It takes all kinds of members with varying skills, because there is always something to do! You don't need to be a pilot nor a mechanic, nor ex-military. Join us at our wing meetings or come say 'hi' at any event. Explore opportunities to view firsthand our dedication to preserving the memory of those who gave so much of themselves so that we may enjoy our current freedom.
"A generation which ignores history has no past and no future" – Robert Heinlein
The CAF was founded to acquire, restore and preserve in flying condition a complete collection of combat aircraft which were flown by all military services of the United States, and selected aircraft of other nations, for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations of Americans.
More than just a collection of airworthy warplanes from the past, the CAF's fleet of historic aircraft, known as the CAF Ghost Squadron, recreate, remind and reinforce the lessons learned from the defining moments in American military aviation history. We work hard to preserve this history "lest we forget."
