Hi there! For the first time, the TF-51D Mustang flight training cost will go up after the first of the year due to increased engine and aircraft maintenance / operation costs. If you are planning on flight instruction in Toulouse Nuts during 2019, consider purchasing a flight certificate before the prices go up after Christmas.

Seventy-seven years ago, at 7:48 AM Hawaiian time, 353 aircraft of the Imperial Japanese Navy attacked the U.S. Pacific Fleet and bases in Pearl Harbor... the catalyst that launched the United States into World War II. Tragically 2,403 Americans were killed with an additional 1,178 wounded. Today, December 7th, we honor those lost and honor those who fought as a result of that day.

The Collings Foundation is proud to operate the last surviving fighter aircraft from the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Curtiss P-40B Tomahawk 41-13297. Please consider helping support this important aircraft that will tell the story of the "Day that will live in infamy" in the new American Heritage Museum
