Welcome to The Eagles Mere Air Museum in Beautiful Sullivan County

 

The most commonly asked question is:

Sadly, we are closed for the season. We are doing routine maintenance on our fleet so that we can fly these beautiful machines next summer. Please visit us on opening day tentatively set for Sunday May 25, 2014. Check back for updates as the season draws near. Thank you for a very successful 2013 season.

Our Mission

We have assembled a collection of very rare aircraft and engines. Many are the only examples left in flying condition. The collection consists of vintage aircraft ranging from 1917 to 1944 and engines starting from 1910. On a nice day you may even see the aircraft flying. This is a flying collection of aircraft, not a static collection. It is our hope to educate the public, flying or not, about these wonderful machines and the brave men and women who flew them. Without these pioneers, we would not have the luxury of our current air travel system.

In keeping with our Mission of promoting aviation, the Museum is proud to sponsor the Women's Air Race Classic. Specifically, Team Phillie Flyers Classic Racer #9. Our very own pilot and guide, Juliet is flying the air race from Concord CA (KCCR) to York PA (KTHV) with the landing and meet and greet at Capital City New Cumberland (KCXY). You can follow the progress of Juliet and Teresa on www.PhillieFlyers.org

In addition to the vintage aircraft and engines, we also have a display of vintage airplane related paraphernalia such as toys, signs, posters and pictures.
Many of the airplanes on display were flown when important developments were occurring in early aviation. For instance:

Check out this video of Amelia Earhart.
