Historic Flight at Kilo-7 offers a collection of the most important aircraft produced between 1927 and 1957—all restored and airborne again.

Our mission goes beyond serving as trustees of an era. We want you to experience the roar of our F8F “Wampus Cat” taking off. Watch engineers at work restoring the aircraft to flying condition. Share the rush of viewing international treasures from all angles.

Whether you’re an experienced aviator, a student of history, or a newcomer to our world, we want to spark and fuel your passion—both for aviation and for epiphanies born from hard labor. Our heroes did not leap from the bathtub shrieking, “Eureka!” They scrawled a sketch on a piece of paper. Got interested in an impossible challenge. And then they dove into the work. The reward? Innovation that astonished both them and us, and that continues to change our world.


July 22, Challenge Air for Kids
9 a.m., HFF

This is the best volunteer opportunity of the year. HFF is honored to again host Challenge Air, a national charity providing first flight experiences to children and young adults with disabilities. Hats off to the volunteer pilots from the Washington Pilots Association who dedicate their talents and equipment to make sure our Challenge Air co-pilots overcome their challenges while airborne. And watch the HFF hangar transform into a carnival. WARNING: you may laugh and cry at the same time. Over 100 challenged kids have enrolled. Help us if you can.

July 22, SkyFair
1:30 p.m., Paine Field

On a break from Challenge Air, HFF pilots will fly with FHCAM during its premier summer event, SkyFair. Look for the L-4, F8F Bearcat and TBM Avenger.

July 28-30
Skyfest, Fairchild AFB, Spokane

HFF will appear with the Thunderbirds and several top-tier civilian performers at the Inland Empire’s aviation event of the summer. About 250,000 patrons will visit the weekend show. Come see our B-25D and P-51B on the other side. Bring sunblock.

August 4-6
Seafair, Lake Washington

HFF’s F8F Bearcat and TBM Avenger will dedicate their performances to the 75th anniversary of NAS Whidbey. Shawn Tucker, a jet-powered Waco (the plane and the pilot) and a PBY also will perform. And the schedulers found room for the Blue Angels. In cooperation with Seafair, HFF will host a special photo opportunity from a barge between the two aerobatic boxes. On Friday, August 4th, twenty lucky photographers will see all the flying from the best spot on Lake Washington. If you would like to be one of them, contact Visitor Services at 425.348.3200.
