The Officers and Board of Trustees invite you to consider adopting a plane with the Empire State Aerosciences Museum!

Airplane adoption is perfect for Non-profit Groups ( Veterans, Scouts, Clubs), Civil Air Patrol, Local businesses, and Individuals.

By adopting an airplane you, your business or your group are committing yourselves to (1)  wash the airplane at least once a year and (2) do some painting on the airplane. You will do the

work in the museum’s Air Park under the direction of an ESAM

Restoration Crew member sometime when the weather is warm. You will be given free admission to the museum when you work on the adopted airplane and ESAM will post a sign indicating that you have adopted the airplane. If you or your group are interested in adopting an airplane at ESAM, please contact the office at 518-377-2191, extension 10.

Here are some of the details. Work will be performed under the direction of a member of the ESAM Restoration Crew. Museum liability insurance will cover you while working on the airplane. ESAM will provide all needed supplies. Volunteers will not be allowed to climb on the airplanes. Annual fees are $50 for individuals and non-profit groups, and $200 for businesses.

For more information, please call the esam office at (518) 377-2191 ext 10 or email us your question at
