Fantasy of Flight

Die-hard aviation and aircraft enthusiasts with a few hours to kill will love this museum, which features a sampling of the largest privately owned vintage aircraft collection in the world.

Let your Imagination take Flight

Fantasy of Flight was founded by Kermit Weeks and originally opened as an aviation-themed attraction in 1995. As the owner of the largest collection of privately owned vintage aircraft in the world, Weeks saw the attraction as an opportunity to share his love of aviation by opening his aircraft collection up to the public. Today, a scaled down version of the attraction is offered in the form of the Fantasy of Flight Collection Museum.

“We want to allow the aircraft-loving public the opportunity to reconnect while we continue to create and design the next iteration (Act III) of the Fantasy of Flight attraction.”

— Kermit Weeks

The Tour

Fantasy of Flight does have a tour guide on duty, so anyone who are interested in learning more about the history of the planes can do so. What sets the Fantasy of Flight Collection apart from other collections aviation enthusiasts may encounter is that Weeks does not collect anything he doesn’t intend to fly. Most of the aircraft you encounter in the museum have been carefully restored to airworthiness.
