Students learn about aircraft engines at the Aviation Museum of N.H. at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport.

Visitors can also get a close-up look at a student-built airplane. Completed last summer, the two-seat Van’s RV-12iS light sport aircraft is on display at the museum through March. The aircraft was built by students at the Manchester (N.H.) School of Technology in partnership with the Aviation Museum and Tango Flight, an educational non-profit.

The plane-build program continues at the Manchester School of Technology, where a second RV-12iS is now under construction.
In addition, the Aviation Museum’s parking lot is the closest the public can get to Runway 17-35 at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, making it a great location for plane-watching as the big jets come and go. The parking lot is free and open to the public daily until 8 p.m.
Museum admission for children under the age of 6 is free, kids ages 6 to 12 are $5. The museum also offers $5 admission for veterans and families. Standard admission for adults (age 13 and above) is $10.
Come see why the Aviation Museum of N.H. was named the ‘Best Place to Take Kids’ in Southern N.H. two years in a row (2021 and 2022) in the annual Hippo Reader’s Poll.
The Aviation Museum, a non-profit 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization based in the 1937 art deco passenger terminal at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, is dedicated to preserving the Granite State’s rich aviation past, and also inspiring today’s students to become the aviation pioneers of tomorrow.
The Aviation Museum is located at 27 Navigator Road, off Harvey Road, in Londonderry, N.H. For more information, visit www.aviationmuseumofnh.org or call (603) 669-4820. Follow the Aviation Museum online on www.facebook.com/nhahs.
