Honoring Bush Pilots

From the beginning of the age of aircraft, the vast land of Alaska was opened by the brave pioneering pilots. This museum, located on the south shore of Lake Hood (one of the busiest seaplane bases in the world), offers interactive displays, memorabilia, photographs and films, plus artifacts that tell the story of aviation in Alaska.

Home of the Catalina Preservation Society and the Pioneer Air Museum, you'll find a variety of classic aircraft. Here, you can see such classic airplanes as a 1928 Stearman C2B and 1928 Keystone Leoning Commuter to a 1963 UH-1H helicopter and a 1974 McDonald Douglas F-15A, among many other aircraft. Founded in 1977, the museum continues to honor the pioneers of flying in Alaska.
