The Valiant Air Command was started by a group of twelve individuals in 1977. It was formed to perpetuate the history and culture of military aviation, to encourage the gathering of men and women in camaraderie, research and warbird restoration, to serve as an educational tool for young and old alike and to assure that the memory of all those who gave their lives in service to their country shall not perish.
The Valiant Air Command is a tax-exempt, 501c3, not for profit, educational Museum that presently has ten acres of property at the Space Coast Regional Airport in Titusvulle Florida. The museum displays, maintains and restores all types of aircraft that were indigenous to the world's military Air Forces from WWI to the present.
The Valiant Air Command has grown over the years to an organization renown around the world for its collection of vintage warbirds, memorabilia and artifacts , as well as its vintage warbird restoration efforts. It added a museum and restoration hanger in the 90s and is now building an additional 25,000sf exhibit hangar. Membership has now grown to over 1300, to include many members from foreign countries. It holds a nationally acclaimed annual warbird airshow every year in March; that along with the museum and its outreach programs, brings hundreds of thousands of dollars into the Brevard County economy.
Picture of Restoration of the Gruman Wildcat that was at the bottom of Lake Michigan for 50 years. Restoration is by the "Grumman Gremlins". Wildcat Coordinator Harold Larkin and the men are Grumman Retirees that worked on the aircraft during WWII. The project got started in 2000.
Proud day when hanging the 1st wing on the Wildcat. See the Grumman Gremlins at work every Thursday at the museum 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
