The Bellanca Airfield Museum shares the glory of Delaware's aviation history with attendees. It is open every 2nd and 4th Saturday, April thru October from 11am-3pm. Admission is $5 for adults 18 and older, and free for children 17 and younger.
The museum is located in the Air Service Hangar at Bellanca Airfield which 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.
The Air Service Hangar is now preserved and maintained today as an aviation museum focused on its namesake, Guiseppe M. Bellanca and his contributions to the aviation industry. The museum is beautifully situated on a historic roadside site of approximately 5 acres with a footprint of approximately 7,800 square feet in the main area, plus an additional office section of 1,600 square feet. It’s owned by the Trustees of the New Castle Common, and it is overseen and preserved by the Friends of Bellanca Airfield (FOBA).
