Unique among air museums, the aircraft and displays that Kermit Weeks has assembled are beyond compare. Not only can you get up close and personal with most of the aircraft on display you never know what's flying when you visit. Our arrival was greeted by a low-flying P-51. Turns out it was flown by Mr. Weeks himself. One can only imagine what the new attraction will be like. The Sunderland was once open to the public and more's the pity it no longer is. In the new museum it may be; a real exposure to what flying in the 30's was all about.

Kermit weeks the owner has put his all into this attraction. Sadly closing 6th April. Like a Phoenix it is to rise again in a couple of years in a more themed attraction.
It's excellent now and so close to Kissimmee. There are things for children and teenagers. Zip lines etc.
kermit flies one of his vintage planes each day. Way better than I expected with flight from balloon through to now. Exhibitions of ww1 and 2.
Get there if you can before it closes for re modelling.

If you like planes , this is the place to go. We were there Saturday and Kermit flew the P51 Mustang. What a sight and sound. We enjoy all the planes but his flying one is a great addition to the museum. You can tell he enjoys interacting with the guests. It is a hope that it will open again soon.

One can tell the idea of being an attraction was set to meet the minimum standards to collect inheritance and tax right offs. Way over priced for what it is. Just wait and go to sun and fun flyin in Lakeland Florida. You'll see some his planes there too. Plus he'll get his money as he charges a fee to go in them there too.

Wonderful place for airplane nuts like myself, but on Apr 6 of 2014, it becomes an "event only" operation. No word on when it will become public again, if ever.
