Fun Early Birds Foundation

In the early days aeroplanes were flown by courageous men and woman. Dressed in leather jackets and only protected by simple goggles and leather caps, pioneers like Anthony Fokker and Louis Bleriot conquered the skies.
Their aircraft were skilfully made flying machines composed of wood, linen and steel wire. Whilst flying, those ‘early birds’ wrote history and laid the foundation for modern aviation.
The Early Birds Foundation aims to preserve the heritage of these and other ‘early birds’ by carefully restoring and rebuilding aircraft and engines. The results of these activities can be seen during airshows and by visiting our working museum.

Hangar is located on the airport, you can park your airplane in front of the hangar.
Visit our collection on Wednesday and Saturday between 11:00 and 16:00.
