Owner description: 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.

Situated in an authentic aircraft hangar on the field of Republic Airport grounds, this amazing hidden gem of aviation aircraft and the history of Long Islanders role in aviation throughout history. Bring the family of any age to walk and explore and discover the incredible aircraft and support vehicles used throughout WW1 and WW2. They also offer flights in vintage aircraft

We went in late July on a Thursday and we were pleasantly surprised. We were there when they opened and watched them tow the planes from the hander and set them up outside. They have nice WWII displays, dioramas, old news clippings and several vintage warplanes. We went to see the F4U Corsair and the Mitchell B-25, and they also had the P-40 & P-47.The Catalina is being restored and the TBM Avenger and the C-47 were not present, which was a disappointment.Nice small display and artifacts from the "Lady Be Good" which I had previously never heard of.With military/police/fireman discount it was $8 for me to get in (otherwise $10). Nice bomber simulator for the kids to play inside. My 14 & 10 year old loved it.

Rides on one of the old planes for $425.00. Had I known I would have saved for that. Always fun and informative.
