The idea for the society was fostered by Morton W. Lester, a well-known Virginia aviation enthusiast from Martinsville, who saw the need to preserve and display rapidly disappearing aviation artifacts in Virginia.
Our mission is to inspire and capture the imagination by connecting people with the story of air and space in Virginia.
We will be the premiere association respected for inspirational programs in preservation, education and appreciation of Virginia air and space history for current and future generations.
