About Us

AirCorps Aviation specializes in the restoration, maintenance, and rebuilding of vintage WWII aircraft. We bring forth experience, dedication, passion, and award-winning detail that shows in every project we take on. But as we grow, so does our story and the services we offer.

AirCorps Team 2017

The Motivation

Moving beyond the traditional restoration service offerings was inevitable when considering the varied and complex needs of customers. The Fabrication, Maintenance, and Parts departments were priority early additions, while Reverse Engineering, Library, and Art have recently expanded the scope of AirCorps’ capabilities and generated excitement in new audiences.

It is a great honor to induce that excitement by sharing the research and rich stories behind each project secured. Frequent project updates, illustrated with high quality images, make it easy for customers and the public to follow progress; often in real-time through social media platforms.

Award-Winning Results

The major restoration projects completed over the last five years have earned the highest level industry awards, as well as seized the attention of aircraft owners, aviation enthusiasts, and the general public.

  • P-51 D TWILIGHT TEAR (P-51D-20NA)
  • STEARMAN N2S-1 BU.NO. 3347
  • P-51 D SIERRA SUE II (P-51D-20NA)
  • HARVARD MARK IV 405

AirCorps Aviation was born of the combined warbird-shaped dreams and experience within a small group of aircraft restoration purists. Joining forces in 2011, these four men have built a business known worldwide for superior workmanship, impeccable authenticity, and relentless innovation.

“AirCorps Aviation is so much more just than a restoration shop. While we do those things very well, we know the importance of building emotional relationships with not just our customers and employees, but with the individual history of each of our projects, and pride ourselves on connecting a fading past to an ever-changing future.”
