Classic Aero-TV: Bringing History Alive - The Antique Aircraft Association

From 2009: Organization’s Annual Fly-In Makes ‘Golden Age’ Come Alive for Enthusiasts

Founded in August of 1953 by Robert L. Taylor, the Antique Aircraft Association is the world’s oldest organization specifically devoted to antique and classic aircraft. Committed to “keep the antiques flying,” the AAA has dedicated its fifty-six years to the preservation of this “Golden Age of Aviation.” 

AAA members have access to the organization’s vast historical library, as well as its large assortment of spare engine and aircraft parts available to assist in restoration projects.

With twenty active chapters across the U.S., the AAA works closely with many type clubs including the Interstate, Culver, Corben, Fairchild, Great Lakes, Pietenpol, Rearwin, Parakeet, Hataz, and Travel Air clubs.  The organization’s headquarters, located near Blakesburg, Iowa, at Antique Field, serves as a site for numerous type club fly-ins throughout the season. 

Antique Field is also the home to the Airpower Museum, Incorporated (APM).  Featuring a large collection of aircraft, the facility has over 20,000 square feet of display and storage space.

Every year over Labor Day Weekend, the Antique Aircraft Association holds its annual AAA/APM Fly-In and Convention.  This year, the event celebrated the early days of corporate aviation, themed as “Corporate Wings.” 

In all, over 360 aircraft, including an impressive turnout of Howard aircraft, visited Antique Field during the fly-in.  Aero-TV spoke with Brent Taylor, son of Robert Taylor, about the event, the organization’s history, as well as the family’s continued passion for the aircraft of yesteryear.
