Remember, Honor, Inspire, Fly!

     The Heart of America Wing of the Commemorative Air Force is fortunate to be located at the New Century AirCenter ( the former Olathe Naval Air Station, commissioned in 1942 as a primary training facility for US Navy pilots).  


     We meet the third Saturday of each month at 10:00am for a short business meeting followed by a presentation and lunch.  Members of the public are welcome to join us!


     The CAF is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational association.  Proceeds from ticket sales, rides, and fund-raising events go to support our community education programs and to keep our vintage military aircraft in flying condition. 

Join the women and men who are the heart of the Heart of America Wing!  We are all dedicated to preserving our military aviation history. Whether you're a pilot, a veteran, an enthusiast, a historian, or just like to have fun, there's a place for you in our wing!

The Heart of America Wing is honored to have as members a number of veterans of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam.  It is part of our mission to honor these brave men and women, and also to educate the public about their sacrifices.

Come fly in one of our WWII open cockpit airplanes in the very spot their counterparts flew during the 1940s!
