ABOUT us

Fleet Model 8 Biplane

Vintage and historical aircraft are being left to decay and rot in increasing numbers. They have been pushed out into the weeds and discarded like unwanted trash. Without effort, these historic planes will be lost forever.

The Historic Aircraft Preservation Society, Inc. is a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation dedicated to preserving, restoring, flying, and displaying historic aircraft from the 1930's to the 1950's. We are working to restore the planes and tell the stories of the aviators who pushed back the boundaries of the sky.

HAPS is located in Hangar Three on the Eagles Nest Airport, about 20 miles south of downtown Dallas.  The corporation is governed by a board of directors, is tax-exempt under IRS rule 501(c)3, and has a written code of ethics.   To meet our team, click here

The organization depends on tax-deductible donations to preserve these aircraft and tell their stories. Please join us in preserving our American Aviation Heritage.

Thank you…
