Located in the Fort Wayne International Airport, the museum has been a mainstay of area aviation history for over thirty years. At the museum, you will find numerous artifacts, displays, and memorabilia highlighting the start, the growth, and the development of aviation history through local heroes like Art Smith and Paul Baer.
