Replicating a typical Midwestern airport of the 1930s, the privately owned Antique Airfield is home to the following:

The Antique Airplane Association (est. 1953) is aviation’s oldest organization dedicated to restoring and flying antique and classic aircraft.

The Air Power Museum Inc. (est. 1965) has over 20,000 sq. ft of display area, featuring historic aircraft, engines, models, and displays.

The Mike Gretz Library of Flight Research Center has over 5,000 volumes, countless periodicals, photograph collections, and aircraft drawings.

The annual AAA/APM Invitational Fly-in, a “By-the-Members, For-the-Members” event, showcases 300 to 400 of the finest and rarest antique/classic aircraft from throughout the country. The AAA/APM Invitational Fly-in is recognized as the premiere aviation event for antique and classic aircraft owners, restorers, pilots, enthusiast, and their families.

Here at Antique Airfield and the AAA/APM, we believe antique and classic aircraft, the pilots that fly them, and the mechanics that restore and maintain them are a window to the explorations, ingenuity, and aviation history that needs to be collected, preserved, and protected for the future.

We seek to keep those traditions alive by keeping the antiques flying, as our motto states.

Keep the Antiques Flying & Support the Airpower Museum
