The Aircraft Engine Historical Society, Inc. was organized in July of 2001 by a small group interested in preserving the rich history of all engines used in aerial propulsion, including rocket engines. The organizers hoped to achieve this goal by bringing together aircraft engine authors, collectors, operators, researchers and enthusiasts within a single non-profit organization. Since that time, the AEHS quarterly journal, Torque Meter, has been read by tens of thousands, and the AEHS web site has been visited by millions of people from around the world.
The AEHS is heavily involved in the identification and cataloging of new source material on the history of aircraft engine development, manufacture and use. In addition to its own growing archive, it has developed on-line catalogs of historically significant documents at the US National Archives and of historically significant engines in museums and collections.
The AEHS strives to:
All these activities foster the camaraderie of fellow enthusiasts, and establish a clearinghouse for obtaining information. Whether you are a researcher, an engine restorer, or an enthusiast, membership to the AEHS is an invaluable asset.
This corporation is organized exclusively for one or more of the non-profit purposes as specified in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, including, for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or corresponding section of any future federal tax code.
