The Ford Tri-Motor is one of the great icons of American aviation. Big, obedient and supremely airworthy, the "Tin Goose," as it became known, flew in the colors of every major U.S. carrier, served with all branches of the military, and became lavishly appointed showpieces for corporations as well as the financial elite. From a utilitarian perspective, it could carry phenomenal loads, fly in and out of the most primitive air strips and was nearly indestructible.

Originally built in 1929, and restored over a 13-year period from 1973 to 1986, the EAA AirVenture Museum's Tri-Motor is the only one remaining that still gives regular passenger service.

View Instructions

 
Visitors to the Museum can experience the thrill of "Golden Age of Aviation" by watching the aircraft take off and land on the Museum's grass airstrip at Pioneer Airport. Flights in the Tri-Motor are available most weekends through the summer.
