The Golden Age Flight Museum now has a temporary home at Tehachapi Airport in California.
The museum is open to the public on the second Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Additionally, Tehachapi pilots open their hangars to display their planes. These include homemade builds, jets, antiques, and current aircraft.
On a tour, you can see an Antonov AN-2, a BT-13, a Beech 18 and a 1922 Harley Davidson up close.
Several showcases feature authentic artifacts. Featured are the Amelia Earhart luggage story; Pancho Barnes and his riding clothes; memorabilia from Charles Lindbergh, including sheet music, pins and children’s travel suitcases; vintage collections of aviation games, valentines and other paper goods from the 1920s and 1930s; and the documented history of Kern County airports. Aviation history books are also on sale.
Todd Schultz founded the Golden Age Flight Museum in 2016 with a mission to create a museum that houses planes that fly. As a result, it inspired him to save airplanes, gliders, cars, tanks, trucks, and related objects that represent a variety of aviation history. He’s dedicated to restoring them to working order and putting them on public display – and a chance for a ride.
Additionally, it is important to Todd to share his knowledge base by promoting educational programs, including STEM platforms. He believes that exposing young people to the world of aviation will give them the opportunity to choose successful careers.
Given the many aircraft donations to the museum, Todd has earned a reputation as a trustworthy custodian of the past and the future. For more information about the museum, to donate an item, or to arrange a group visit, visit http://www.goldenageflightmuseum.org/ or contact Todd at [email protected]
