Advancing the Awareness of Connecticut’s Aviation History
Founded in 1998 by the late State Senator George “Doc” Gunther, the Connecticut Air & Space Center is a 501(c)(3) charitable corporation dedicated to honoring the pioneers of early aviation, restoring and preserving examples of the aircraft they flew, and educating current and future generations about Connecticut’s unique aviation heritage. The Center relies on volunteers who painstakingly piece together these aircraft and on the donations it receives from those in the public and private sectors.
The Connecticut Air and Space Center is located in Stratford CT near Sikorsky Memorial Airport. We are currently restoring several aircraft, including the famous Sikorsky Memorial FG1-D Corsair and Sikorsky S60 “Flying Crane”. We are always seeking new members and volunteers to help further the process.
Please Note: The museum is currently located on a Federal Government owned installation, all visitors must be at least 18 years of age. Please come to 550 Main Street in Stratford (across from the Shell station and the airport) for a quick Safety Briefing and to gain entry to the museum.
Our hours of operation are Tuesdays and Saturdays 9 am till 2 pm and
Thursdays 9 am till 9 pm. If you are planning a group visit please make sure to call ahead a few days in advance to make sure we have a guide avaliable for your visit.
