Donate Your Collection!

Do you have an artifact or collection you'd like to contribute to Kelch? History tells the story of a culture - and often, an individual. We take pride in preserving collections donated from all over the country, in all areas of aviation. Our state-of-the-art archive facility welcomes donations of aviation related books, blueprints, artworks, and more, and we are delighted to accept aircraft donations as well.
