About Us

The Early Birds Foundation was founded in 1976. Over the years, what started as a group of three friends who wanted to restore a rotary engine, grew into a collection of 26 aircraft. Today, the collection spans the history of aviation from the 1909 Blériot XI, to the famous World War II P-51 fighter.
