The Aerospace Heritage Foundation of Utah is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1982. The mission of the Foundation is to provide capital support for Hill Aerospace Museum for facility improvement and expansion, and for those projects for which USAF funding is not available.
Today the Foundation continues to provide support for the museum in various ways, including the location and acquisition of artifacts - including vintage aircraft - for restoration and display. The Foundation works closely with the museum staff and volunteers to achieve many other improvements which help the museum present the history of the United States Air Force and Hill Air Force Base. The Foundation also undertakes marketing and promotion efforts to encourage Utah tourism by both in-state and out-of-state visitors.
The location, acquisition, and restoration of these vintage aircraft is a very expensive undertaking. Local and state financial support is sometimes available, but the bulk of our funding comes from corporations and private citizens. You can join the Foundation and help us!
