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.

October 26, 7:00 p.m. and October 29 at noon, HFF "The National Air Races, 1918 - 1940" HFF is pleased to announce its fall/winter aviation history series, "The National Air Races, 1918-1940," presented by its Speakers Bureau. Join us on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. or for a reprise the following Saturday, at noon. Please use these events to introduce friends to HFF. In the initial presentation on October 26 and 29, Mike Lavelle surveys air racing events from post-WWI to the eve of WWII. Race promoters attracted large crowds and international media attention despite the Depression. Having an air race enhanced the reputations of host cities. The economics of these events benefitted aircraft engineers, manufacturers, pilots and their aircraft. The Bendix, Thompson and Schneider Cups became world famous, prized possessions. Air races were a highlight of a troubled time. November 16, 7:00 p.m. and November 19 at noon, HFF "Technologies Developed During the Golden Age of Air Racing" Many racing aircraft between the world wars were faster than contemporary military designs. Aviation historian and aerodynamicist David Lednicer examines how innovative technologies developed on the race circuit became standard features of WWII fighters. Some of these technologies remain "leading edge" to this day. January 18, 7:00 p.m. and January 21 at noon, HFF "Air Race Engines" The heart of every aircraft is its engine. Barry Latter explores technical variables affecting engine output and the risks taken by extraordinary people to provide excitement for Depression-era crowds. While the United States remained politically neutral until Pearl Harbor, race engine development became a legal, parallel channel for advancing military powerplants. February 15, 7:00 p.m. and February 18 at noon, HFF "Air Racers" What inspired men and woman to fly in these air races - piloting fast and sometimes unproven aircraft - pushing themselves and their planes to the limit? Bill McCutcheon addresses their backgrounds, personalities and idiosyncrasies. Successful air race pilots enjoyed celebrity status and often prospered financially. Others paid the cost of aviation progress with their lives. To participate in any or all of these activities, please call Visitor Services at 425.348.3200 or email visitorservices@historicflight.org.
