A generation which ignores history has no past and no future – Robert Heinlein
All gave some, some gave all
This is your chance to get closer to the greatest generation. As this generation of extraordinary people become fewer in number, we aim to keep the legacy they left behind flying.
Let the adventure begin!
Get started at the ground floor with our organization. We are just getting the AR Wing back up and running and are looking for a lot of enthusiastic volunteers who are ready to hit the ground running!
War Bird Passion
If you have a passion for war birds, we are the organization you have been looking for. Whether you want to work on them, fly them, learn more about them, or just be near them, we can help you fulfill your dream.
The CAF may be your best chance to get some stick time in that old war bird you have idolized since you were a kid. Join today and help inspire the next generation of aviators!
CAF: Who We Are
The CAF was founded to acquire, restore and preserve in flying condition a complete collection of combat aircraft which were flown by all military services of the United States, and selected aircraft of other nations, for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations of Americans.
More than just a collection of airworthy warplanes from the past, the CAF’s fleet of historic aircraft, known as the CAF Ghost Squadron, recreate, remind and reinforce the lessons learned from the defining moments in American military aviation history.
The CAF Mission
To reconstitute the Arkansas unit of the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) in honor of the original members of the CAF in Arkansas, and to share the rich American military aviation heritage associated with Arkansas during WWII.
To acquire, restore and preserve in flying condition, representative aircraft to be used to educate others in the history of the aircraft flown and the men and women who flew and maintained them during WWII.
To create a self-sustaining organization that will actively share our mission in the community and recruit new members to the CAF.
The Commemorative Air Force has the largest collection of flying warbirds, but our members are one of our best assets. Members engage with the mission to protect these rare flying monuments to freedom for future generations through preservation, education and exhibition.
