    Atlanta GA, September 21-25, 2016, Cockpit USA, and the American Airpower museum had the honor of participating in the 75th Anniversary commemoration of the American Volunteer Group (AVG). Two of the three surviving members of the AVG were in attendance, and five P-40’s from around the country gathered to honor the group. With the help of Sponsors Cockpit USA, The American Airpower Museum was able to send their P-40 “Jacky C” from its base In Farmingdale N.Y. to Peachtree DeKalb airport in Georgia.

    Cockpit USA has made it part of it’s core mission to honor the Americans who volunteered to assist China during WWII. Their 23rd Fighter Group Jacket is a tribute to the group deigned to be as close to the original jackets used as possible. Additional Jacket designs have also been used as a way to continue to educate people on the groups fascinating history.

  • We Survived Sandy

    Following the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy last week, we are thankful to report that all at Cockpit USA HQ and the American Airpower Museum are safe, well and back in operation. Although our head office in Manhattan was left in the dark and without power for a week, Sandy’s 80-90 mph gusts and relentless showers did not manage to cause any major damage to the Farmingdale area, leaving the AAM relatively unscathed. Although closed in the interest of safety and with only minor electrical issues, the WWII fleet of aircraft and hangar were all accounted for and unaffected. Grateful for the minimal damage caused, our thoughts at this time are with all those left less fortunate in the wake of the storm and the first responders and volunteers hard at work to get the East Coast back on track.
