Our mission is to help preserve the heritage and traditions of the Michigan Air National Guard, Selfridge Air National Guard Base, and the units that are/or were stationed there.

A Bigger Vision

Our vision for the future includes the construction of a new Education Center to promote interest and inform visitors about aviation. This vision includes the renovation of the Corsair and the building to house this historic aircraft.

Additionally, we are in the process of raising funds to create a new access gate to the museum which does not require entering Selfridge ANG Base.

This can only be accomplished through both private and public donations.

The packard Parade to Victory

In April of 1917, Henry B. Joy, the Packard Motor Car Company President, donated his Joy Aviation Field to the U.S. Army to establish a flying school for military aviators as the U.S. entered WW I. Now you can see some of these wonders of America’s love affair with the automobile on display at the Selfridge Military Air Museum.
