Marty W. · May 21, 2015
Great for young kids to get up close to some large planes and sit in the cockpit. Also a great viewing area to the flights taking off at Charlotte Douglas. Fun visit!

About Carolinas Aviation Museum


The world's very first working airplane took flight at Kitty Hawk, making North Carolina a natural place to explore the world of aviation. Almost the entire story of flight unfolds here at Carolinas Aviation Museum, from the development of commercial and military planes to privately owned aircraft. It's not all about the technology, either—the museum places heavy emphasis on the human stories behind these marvels of engineering, including heroic Vietnam War veterans.

  • Don't Miss: the "Miracle on the Hudson," the US Airways plane that Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger safely emergency-landed in New York City's Hudson River in 2009
  • Size: a 40,000-square-foot hangar with an active ramp area that allows visitors to take guided tours of the planes
  • The Building: though the visitors' area is in a newer hangar, the original building—the first commercial hangar in Charlotte from 1938—can still be seen across the runway
  • Eye Catcher: once the fastest plane in the world, there are only two D-558-1 Skystreaks still in existence, and one is here at the museum
  • Permanent Mainstay: it might not be the flashiest plane at the museum, but no trip here would be complete without seeing the original breaker of gravity's bonds, the Wright Flyer
