United States Aeronautical History (USAH) is a non-profit organization that was established in 2018 and dedicated to preserve, educate and maintain the history of aviation in the United States. USAH is committed to making sure the history is kept alive, archived, and accessible for the next generation. We are devoted to the aircraft, aviation equipment, and the stories of those men and women; from the 1903 Flyer with the Wright Brothers to present-day aviation, both Military and Civilian.

          We feel it is imperative to keep the existence of our Military and Civilian Aviation alive to allow our youth to explore and gain the knowledge of the great history that would otherwise be forgotten. At USAH, we are able to provide this through monthly digital magazine issues, documentaries, photos, and videos. We work to support the collection and archive of information as it pertains to aviation in the U.S.A.

          The history of aviation evolved with aircraft that have represented the pinnacle of design with swift fighters, long-range bombers, transports, sport biplanes, experimental airplanes that used the sky as a laboratory. Many set notable records, helped win wars, increased our mobility, trained thousands of pilots, and many influenced aviation.

       Here at USAH, we cover many aerial events such as; U.S. Military/Military Decommissions, Air Shows, Experimental, Air Racing, Aerobatic, Expos, and everything aviation.
