"To preserve the past, present and future aviation history of North and South Carolina."
Charlotte Douglas Airport grew rapidly over the years but in 1991, the original hangar was scheduled to be torn down to make room for expansion. Floyd and Lois Wilson heard about the removal of the hangar and decided to step in to save the historical landmark. They organized a small group of aviation enthusiasts and formed the Carolinas Historical Aviation Commission (CHAC). The organization acquired its first aircraft from the U.S. Army in 1992 - a North American T-28 Trojan. The T-28 was a trainer designed in 1949 to replace the T-6 Texan used during WWII. It was in production from about 1950 to 1957. Two years after the CHAC was formed, the old hangar officially became the new home of the Carolinas Aviation Museum.
