Our Mission
& Vision

Preserving and sharing the legacy of USMC aviation

The mission of the Flying Leatherneck Historical Foundation is to help strengthen America by preserving the aviation history of the U.S. Marine Corps, honoring the service of its people, and inspiring in all generations an appreciation of America’s freedoms and values. 

We accomplish our mission by supporting the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum, and by hosting educational programs that connect all generations with the nation’s history and bring civilian and military communities together.


We build a stronger nation by educating all generations about the contributions, character, and sacrifices of the people of USMC aviation and the missions they completed to defend America and her freedoms and values.


Support Us Today

Your generous support will make it possible for us to disassemble and move the treasured collection, renovate the El Toro hangars, and create exciting, immersive experiences, exhibits, and programs.
