The American Airpower Museum is proudly housed in one of the few remaining Republic Aviation Hangars built in 1940 to support what would be wartime production of the P-43, and the P-47 during WWII. Its history continues into the birth of the Jet Age and would be the site of aircraft production and finishing up until the 1980s when Fairchild Republic would close its plant permanently at Farmingdale in 1987. The American Airpower Museum now preserves the legacy of this legendary aircraft maker and further preserves our nations aviation history for future generations. Although our aircraft collection is impressive, it is our hangar full of historic displays and exhibits that tell the story about the aircraft, and more importantly the people who built, flew, and maintained them. Our exhibits spotlight different aspects of our aviation and military history and have been masterfully designed and built by a dedicated corps of volunteer historians and talented craftsmen to give our visitors an immersive experience while they tour our historic hangar and flight line.
