Experience History in Motion

Historic Flight 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 piston engines, watch engineers restore vintage aircraft to flying condition, and view aeronautical displays from every angle.

Whether you’re an experienced aviator, a student of history, or a newcomer to our world, "HFF" will spark and fuel your passion both for aviation and for epiphanies borne from hard work. Our heroes did not shriek “Eureka!” They scrawled a sketch on a piece of paper, got interested in an impossible challenge, and then went to work.

The reward? Innovation that astonished both them and us and that continues to change our world.
