THE ARIZONA AEROSPACE FOUNDATION

Written by Super User on . Posted in Uncategorised

THE ARIZONA AEROSPACE FOUNDATION

Our Mission: Creating unlimited horizons in aerospace education through the preservation and presentation of the history of flight.

Incorporated in the state of Arizona on November 20, 1967, as the Tucson Air Museum, the Arizona Aerospace Foundation is a member-based not-for-profit foundation, funded by gate admissions, concessions and donations. The Foundation operates the Pima Air & Space Museum and the Arizona Aviation Hall of Fame in Tucson, Arizona, and the Titan Missile Museum in Sahuarita, Arizona.

  1. The Pima Air & Space Museum opened in 1976 and today is the third largest aviation museum in the world. The museum has 80 acres, exhibiting more than 300 aircraft and 125,000 artifacts (not including the archives and photo collection). The museum attracts more than 170,000 visitors annually, and houses its own aircraft restoration shop. The Pima Air and Space Museum also offers exclusive tours of the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG) on Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. Known as the "Boneyard," it is the world's largest military aircraft storage facility.
  2. The Arizona Aviation Hall of Fame (AAHOF) offers Pima Air and Space Museum visitors a unique opportunity to acquaint themselves with noteworthy Arizona aviators. Housed in the Dorothy Finley Space Gallery, AAHOF is a permanent shrine to Arizonans who have played a role in or made a significant contribution to aviation and aerospace history.
  3. The Titan Missile Museum opened in 1986 and is the only publicly accessible Titan II Missile Complex of the 54 that were on alert from 1963 to 1987. It is one of two intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) sites in the world that have been preserved for the benefit of the public. The Count Ferdinand von Galen Titan Missile Museum Education and Research Center is situated directly adjacent to the missile complex and houses an exhibit gallery, museum store, classroom and a state-of-the-art archival storage area. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1994, the underground missile complex was built to withstand virtually all but a direct hit from an enemy warhead. Located in Sahuarita, Arizona, over one million visitors have toured the facility, experiencing first-hand the chilling reality of the Cold War. Armed with the largest warhead ever deployed on an American ICBM, the Titan II represented a critical part of our nation's defense in a war no one could win.
