About the
Foundation

Keep our aviation history vibrant and alive.

Our mission is to support the Yanks Air Museum’s efforts in restoring, maintaining and displaying its stunning collection of aircraft which are at a level of unparalleled standards in the world of aircraft collections. Our special aim is to make this world-class museum come alive with the stories and experiences of the millions of men and women of flight. By directly connecting our brave pioneers of aviation to their legendary machines in a tangible, living manner, we hope to produce a truly inspiring and emotional museum experience that is like no other in the world. We cordially invite you to be a part of it.


When the museum founders announced the expansion and construction of the Grand Museum Complex in Northern California, all involved had a vision to create a new and different experience for their visitors. We created an innovative program designed to Remember and Inspire.

We are actively gathering the documented experiences of those who gave service in the various arenas of flight; those who designed, built, maintained and flew the machines that changed the direction of humankind. We will proudly display and maintain their photos, videos, audio recordings and written accounts so that those who view them in context with their associated aircraft will feel a real connection to these air pioneers and their mighty machines.



We are seeking nonprofit organizations and groups to collaborate with us and to work together within an innovative and mutually beneficial arrangement that will commemorate, educate and enthuse future generations with the stories and achievements of their own groups’ members. Please contact us to further explore this opportunity to unite and grow together.
