- The Florida Military Aviation Museum is a
non-profit, tax exempt, educationally oriented
organization chartered by the state if Florida
and dedicated to the preservation of aircraft,
vehicles, and artifacts of our military services.
We are particularly interested in promoting
Florida's role in military aviation. To this end,
we attempt to aquire aircraft that were either
stationed in Florida or flown by Floridians.
All work is done by volunteers and is supported by
the nominal admission fees, memberships, retail
sales and donations.
The museum is currently located at 16055 Fairchild
Dr. at the St. Petersburg - Clearwater
International Airport. Due to airport expansion,
the collection will be moved in October or
November to a new location, most likely the
former Ringling Circus site at the airport in
Venice, Florida. We will update this page upon
completion of the move.
Family and student memberships are available and
volunteers are welcome.

As a guy who flew for the Navy until the mid-2000s, I concur with Bob Hufford's comments ref the P2V-3. However, I'd just like to add that several of the jets in FMAM's former collection eventually found a new home with the MAPS Air Museum in Canton, OH and are currently undergoing restoration there. This includes the T-37, F-86, F-100, F-101, F-102 and F-105. See:

Well, since people have been stopping by, This museum has been defunct for almost 14 years. Sadly things on the internet never go away. At least we now have an explanation.

Nice museum! Way better than the Valiant Air Command Warbird museum in Titusville, Florida.
At that museum, they have a yellow T-128 on display in their Vietnam hangar. That plane is owned by a guy sitting in Federal prison in Miami for NASA contract fraud. He bought that T-128 from the monies with that fraud scheme. He donated $65,000 of that money from that fraud scheme to that museum in Titusville. He also illegally flew their TBM Avenger back on March 30th 2014 before he reported to prison. That Avenger had been under restoration and never received any FAA inspections to verify it was airworthy.
Plus that same guy had a previous conviction for sexual assault on his 19 year old babysitter in Minnesota back in 1989.
The commander of that museum in Titusville is good friends with this guy.
That museum in Titusville should turn that T-128 over to the government and also give the government back the $65,000 that guy donated. After all, that was money that came out of that NASA contract fraud scheme.
This is NOT how a non-profit museum should be operated.
How can one get the IRS to conduct an audit on a non-profit organization?

WE ELECTED A NEW BOARD OF DIRECTORS AROUND 1996--THEY THEN STARTED RELOCATING THE AIRCRAFT TO THE SEBRING AREA.
WE WERE IN DANGER OF LOSING THE PROPERTY WE WERE ON.

I was certainly glad that I took a look at these reviews. I nearly made a long drive for what appears to be almost nothing. It seems a real shame that the directors of the museum have appearently mismanaged what seems to have been a great collection of aircraft. Can't they at least have the courtesy to update and maintain this web site so that they fairly represent what they have left?
