The Classic Aircraft Aviation Museum is an aviation museum that is located in Hillsboro, Oregon and created in 1998. Aircrafts at the museum are either maintained in flyable condition or are restored so that they can fly once again. There were 15 aircraft, as of March 2010, in the museum?s collection. The hangar where the museum is located in was once owned by Roger Kelsay. Kelsay then founded the Classic Aircraft Aviation Museum in 1998 and donated many of the planes it the museum?s collection.

The museum had a performance at the 2006 Oregon International Air show that featured a former Polish Air Force MIG-17F and a former British Royal Air Force BAC Jet Provost Mk.3A, with the museum participating in the 2007 show as well with the same aircraft. The fighter had been displayed on the car dealer?s sales lot, but the museum planned to restore the plane to flight worthy status. Their collection also includes engines, ground equipment, and ejection seats and some aviation artifacts as well. This is part of their goal of educating the public through demonstrations of working aircraft.
