The Spirit of Flight Foundation's new Gallery offers a truly unique blend of modern and historic aviation history. The world-class collection blends vintage and corporate aviation to inspire the wonders of flight.

Many one-of-a-kind aircraft and unique flight artifacts and memorabilia have been acquired to honor the men and women who have contributed to Colorado aviation history and to also educate the general public on the efforts to build and fly aircraft.

Our mission is to acquire, restore, preserve and display aviation history to honor all American veterans, to educate the general public of the significance of aviation, and to inspire future generations to become involved in aviation and/or aviation history.

 

 

We're Growing!

Join us on an exciting new chapter as Spirit of Flight grows again, beginning the transition to a new home! We are about to begin construction on a new facility. Our collection has been relocated and while we await the completion of the new facility, we're bringing Spirit of Flight to you in two ways:

THE SPIRIT OF FLIGHT GALLERY: Conveniently located in Westminster, the Gallery is now open by appointment.

ON THE ROAD: The mobile air museum will be bringing our collection to an event near you! Stay tuned to our social media and here on the website for updates.

The New Spirit of Flight Museum will be located at the Rocky Mountain Metro Airport and will take about a year and a half to complete.  It will be an amazing, world-class facility with flying aircraft to promote living history through ride experiences.

UNTIL THE GRAND OPENING OF THE NEW SPIRIT OF FLIGHT CENTER

Starting at an early age, Gordon Page was obsessed with anything that had to do with airplanes. Compelled to always look up to see what was flying overhead, he quickly developed the ability to identify anything with wings. Since then, Gordon has spent his life Chasing Planes. Follow Gordon on his adventures as a pilot, historian, broker, and aircraft appraiser that detail real life experiences and the efforts to save aviation history. Get an inside look at the world of running a museum and how aircraft and artifacts are appraised, acquired, restored and displayed, in the complete first season of Chasing Planes. Meet collectors, and hear some amazing stories behind historic aircraft and artifacts, sometimes forgotten in storage facilities and hangars for years.

Now available to stream and watch online, purchase, or on DVD! The first complete first season is six full episodes of Chasing Planes, hosted by aviation expert and museum founder, Gordon Page. Visit storage facilities and hangars full of history, and meet museum visitors who look to pawn off historic items. Episodes include discoveries of rare aircraft and artifacts.
