Bellanca Airfield Museum

Visit the Bellanca Airfield Museum, located inside the historic Air Service Hangar, and celebrate the aviation legacy of Giuseppe M. Bellanca, his planes, and the pilots who flew them. The museum also houses the Delaware Aviation Hall of Fame. Admission is $5 and all are welcome. Open on 2nd and 4th Saturdays, April thru October, 11am to 3pm. The Bellanca Aircraft Corporation built hundreds of planes in Delaware during its nearly thirty-year lifespan, with virtually every model setting one or more world records. At its peak, Bellanca employed more than 3,000 workers. Today, the 350 acre once state-of-the-art lighted public airfield and adjoining factory site are almost entirely obliterated by a large business park, however the hangar turned museum still remains. The Air Service Hangar at Bellanca Airfield is of historical significance to the state of Delaware and the United States. The Bellanca Hangar is listed on both the national and state of Delaware registers of historic sites. Continuous funding and support is needed from history and aviation fans alike to preserve the hangar for future generations.
