Support the Capital Campaign for  the 
Champaign Aviation Museum:
Building Expansion for Learning & Exhibits

The Champaign Aviation Museum will expand its organizational capacity through the construction of an additional hangar building!

The new building will provide:

  • Expanded hangar space and essential area for the imminent wing attachments of the B-17 Flying Fortress restoration and new opportunities to create programs and exhibits about the aircraft metalworking techniques and machining done by the Greatest Generation.

  • Opportunity for new educational displays highlighting WWII Veterans and their experiences while fighting to preserve our freedom, as well as the experiences of those on the home front. 

  • More workspace for maintenance of our active aircraft in a public space so that visitors can observe and learn directly from our Volunteers.  Expansion also allows the Museum to accept future donations of aircraft.
