Overview

The American Airpower Museum is Non-Profit 501C3 Aviation Museum and State Chartered Educational Foundation. A unique Museum in that many of the historic Aircraft are operational and fly regularly during the spring and summer months. The Museum is located at historic Republic Airport in Farmingdale NY. The Airport established back in the 1920s by Fairchild and Grumman Aviation. Eventually the home of Seversky Aviation during the 1930s it would evolve into Republic Aviation in 1939. In 1941 Republic produced the P-47 Thunderbolt which would go on to be the most mass produced fighter of WWII with over 15,000 built. Republic would go on to build the F-84, F-105, and A-10 Fighter Aircraft all right here in Long Island NY. Today the American Airpower Museum calls one of the last three surviving Republic Hangars home.

Wonderful museum of airpower, loaded with history, stories of the soldiers, planes, etc. It is staffed by veterans who volunteer their time. Do not go in the winter...huge open hangar with no heat. Great spring & summer visit.

Wonderful museum devoted largely to WW2. Great planes (many in airworthy condition). Also fascinating dioramas and displays of wartime life. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. I could only stay for an hour and a half, but could go back tomorrow. If you fly in,...More

This was a great way to spend a few hours with the family. Do much history shared with us. Tour guides are not only very knowledgeable but some have personal experience using the aircraft. Definitely worth while.
