Discover the Pacific Coast Air Museum

The Pacific Coast Air Museum (PCAM) is an easily accessible open-air, family-friendly museum that displays over 35 historic aircraft. PCAM is located on a five acre parcel at the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport and is open five days a week year-round. Kids love PCAM!

Our mission is to Educate and Inspire both young and old about our aviation heritage and space technology, to Preserve historic aircraft and artifacts, and to Honor veterans.

What You’ll Find at PCAM

This is a “hands-on” museum. In most cases you can walk right up to the airplanes, helicopters, and equipment, and touch them, look inside them, and see what made them work.


On your visit to PCAM, you’ll find a collection of authentic, well-cared-for aircraft. You can crawl under them, look inside wheel wells and bomb bays, peer into cockpits, and examine all the details.

Flight Wing

The Pacific Coast Air Museum is one of the few air museums in the country to maintain a fleet of flying aircraft. Ours is small but growing, consisting of two piston-engined military aircraft, a few classic civilian aircraft from the end of aviation’s Golden Era, and some more modern civil aircraft. All aircraft are maintained to rigorous FAA standards by Flight Wing volunteers. Anyone is welcome to join, regardless of age or experience.

PCAM maintains a collection of permanent and semi-permanent exhibits. We have rare photos, cutaway jet engines that show their inner workings, numerous artifacts of “Golden Age” and World War II flight, a large collection of model aircraft, and most importantly our F-15A “First Responder” exhibit.

Featured Exibit: 9/11 First Responder

Our premier exhibit is the F-15A “First Responder,” which was the first fighter jet on the scene over New York City the morning of September 11, 2001. This is the actual aircraft that took to the air that dreadful morning to provide protection to the people of Manhattan, and you can see it right here at PCAM.

A large part of the PCAM mission is to educate both children and adults on our aviation heritage and space technology. To that end, we offer a variety of educational programs. The Museum is a favorite field trip destination for regional elementary schools, we hold a Boy Scout Aviation Merit Badge class, and we have special events and guest speakers.
