The Hagerstown Aviation Museum’s goal of preserving local aviation history continues to be the focus and mission. Located at 18450 Showalter Road, the museum has taken up residence in the 1943 Fairchild Dome Hangar. At this time, museum aircraft and exhibits are available to the public during museum events only. The museum hangar is currently under rehabilitation and not open to the public with regular hours. Make sure to go check out their website for updates and upcoming events!

The Hagerstown Aviation Museum, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the region’s more than 90 years of extraordinary aviation history.

EAA Chapter 36

EAA Chapter 36, Chartered on November 14, 1957, is a proud Member of The Association, (EAA), the leading organization for people who love recreational aviation. That means the doors are open to pilots and non-pilots alike, who love aviation and its history, or just want to learn more about the fun of flying, and the personal fulfillment of completion. As a member, you’re invited and encouraged to take advantage of the numerous EAA educational and mentor programs designed to make your interest in aviation even more enjoyable, and EAA Chapter 36 takes that mission to a personal level.

We are located off Interstate 81, PA exit 1, between Hagerstown, MD and the PA State Line along US Route 11. Chapter 36 operations are located on the Hagerstown Airport, in the EAA hangar on the (west apron), T hangar area.
