Wings of Steel Foundation…
Our charity was founded to educate, share and pass down to our current and future generations the importance of our aviation history, its dying skills, and our need to commemorate the people and their machines that shaped our lives through past decades up to this current day. In commemorating these brave pioneers, military serviceman and women, we continue to put every effort in restoring and preserving important historic aircraft in their original airworthy condition, while flying these rare aircraft to public events in tribute to those that forged our history.

|Our mission is to build on our infrastructure as an aviation education facility for the public that incorporates the ongoing preservation of the worlds rarest historic aircraft.Our Foundation’s home at Hangar 13-3, New Richmond Airport, is our starting block for the charity to allow us to teach our youth and adults alike about aviation history at its best. Our other important purpose is to educate the public and enthusiasts in the necessity of preservation, while including them in the day to day care and operation of our rare historic aircraft. Our highly acclaimed professionals will also continue to expand the aircraft into a museum of airworthy national treasures, with a unique theme that will continue to be preserved in operational condition. This will allow present and future generations to still see, hear and learn about these historic time capsules, with the ability for all to experience these wonderful aircraft alive, flying in dedication of our world’s history and past generations who made it happen, so “history can continue to remain a living reality instead of just a fading memory”.|
