Valle, AZ Location
As more and more aircraft were restored and the Planes of Fame collection grew, an additional display facility was opened in Valle, Arizona in 1995. Located halfway between Williams, Arizona and the south rim of the Grand Canyon, this facility houses over 40 of the Museum’s aircraft, many of which are also flyable. Our mission is to preserve aviation history, inspire interest in aviation, educate the public, and honor aviation pioneers and veterans. The Museum is dedicated to the preservation, perpetuation and exhibition of historical aircraft, and to the men and women, both famous and unknown, who devoted their lives to flight.
Hours of Operation
The Museum is open every day of the year, with the exception of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and occasional special events. Normal hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
