Collection(s)The museum was established in 1990, following a governmental decision, and opened on the 20th of July 1993, after sufficient exhibits were gathered. They include: documents and artefacts that belonged to the first piloting school in Romania, established by Mihail Cerchez in 1910, artefacts relating to Aurel Vlaicu (documents, photographs, engineering diploma, the watch with monogram he had with him when he fell down, the mortuary mask), personal belongings to Smaranda Brăescu, world champion at parachutism, the personal archive of Henri Coandă, containing original plans of the lenticular aerodyne built in America, the poster drawn by him for the Salon from 1910 presenting the first reaction airplane in the world. First it was sheltered in some campaign tents, and after a year, in a small building located at the entrance to the Băneasa bus station, then the museum moved to a huge perimeter, at Otopeni. Here there are also flying equipment and devices. Meanwhile, the museum collection grew also by Ion Stroescu’s archive (an inventor whose name reads also on the front of the aerodynamical tunnel in Paris, than the built). The aviation books from 1900 - 1905 contain the researches of the French engineer Gustave Eiffel. There is also a reconstruction of an old street of Bucharest with shops and cafeteria.
