Extending Our Reach
In addition to displaying our artifacts at our Museum complex, we are actively working to loan artifacts to other museums and airports in the Carolinas. Our loans range from small items and documents to full-size aircraft. (Photo: Museum's Wright Glider hanging in the check-in lobby of the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport).
No venue is more suited to displaying aircraft and aviation artifacts than an airport. A good example of this is our 1903 Wright Glider which is on display in the check-in lobby of the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport.

If you are looking to enhance an airport display, or researching the background of your airport or the airlines or military unites which served there, our extensive Dolph Overton Aviation Library may have just what you need.
Each year Museum's flying aircraft attend numerous air shows in the eastern United States. For more information, please see our Air Show Section.
Often the development of an airport or military base is critical to the communities around it. Our Library and Museum have a wealth of artifacts that may be useful for a display you are working on.
In addition to airports and museums, the Carolinas Aviation Museum also participates in community events such as Charlotte's annual 4th of July celebration. If you are planning a community event and would like us to bring some of our aircraft cockpits or historic military vehicles, please contact us.
