Aviation History comes to life at the Pacific Coast Air Museum located at the Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport in Santa Rosa. The Museum is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the acquisition, restoration, safe operation and display of historic aircraft.
In nearly 20 years of operation the museum has acquired more than two dozen historical aircraft, many of which have significant military service. The museum engages in a variety of community outreach programs, including monthly open cockpit Climb Aboards, educational programs and the annual air show. Each year tens of thousands of Sonoma County residents and visitors are touched by the Pacific Coast Air Museum’s efforts to keep aviation history alive.
Visit the museum to view the educational exhibits and walk among the static aircraft displays including the F-4 Phantom, F-14 Tomcat, F-86 Sabre, AV-8C Harrier, UH-1H Huey and more. Sit inside the cockpit of historic military aircraft the third weekend of each month and talk to knowledgeable docents and aircraft crews, many of whom served our country in these same aircraft.
Enjoy the spectacular Wings Over Wine Country Air Show each August. Join the more than 20,000 air show enthusiasts who come to see military jet demonstrations from the Air Force and Navy, exciting aerobatic performers, warbird flights, simulated CDF fire drops, Sonoma County Sheriff helicopter rescue and dozens of static aircraft on display. In December bring your children or grandchildren to meet Santa who flies in by helicopter. Or just have a relaxing picnic lunch on the east patio facing the rows of aircraft on display.
There is truly something for everyone. The museum always encourages volunteers to be a docent or to help restore an historic aircraft.
