Together with the CAF's fleet of aircraft, our members are the CAF's greatest asset. Members engage with the mission to protect these rare flying monuments to freedom for future generations through preservation, education, exhibition and airshows.
CAF members, originally mostly World War II veterans, increased rapidly in number from five in 1957 to almost 9,000 in 2008. CAF members come from all walks of life. They all share the same interest in preserving and teaching the history of World War II airpower.
You need not be a veteran or a pilot to join the CAF. Membership is open to all men and women, age 18 or older. The CAF also has a cadet program for those under 18. There are many different membership opportunities with the CAF.
Why join the air force you've never heard of?
Because you want to Honor American Military Aviation through flight, exhibition and remembrance.
