Do you have an interest in in volunteering for a great organization using your computer, from the comfort of your own home? If so, we want to hear from you!

We need volunteers to assist in the identification and cataloging of the American Aviation Historical Society’s (AAHS) photo archives. With more than 1,000,000 images to identify and catalog in our searchable database, accomplishing this task is beyond the resources of a few individuals. Won’t you join us on this fun project?

If you want to help, great! Remember, this is done on your schedule, from your computer at your home or office. Please follow these steps to get started:

  1. Visit the PlaneSpotter website: https://aahsplanespotter.com/.
  2. Click SIGN UP at the top, type in your contact information
  3. We’ll email you asking you to provide a login/password that’s easy for you to remember
  4. Once your login is set up, you’ll be assigned a batch of images which you’ll access through the PlaneSpotter website
  5. One photo at a time, you will research available information available in the image using the internet and our Resources Page https://aahsplanespotter.com/resources.php
  6. Next, you will enter the information you find (tail number, make/model of the plane, location, etc.) to the page for that image on the PlaneSpotter website
  7. Once you complete your batch of images, you can request another batch!

That’s how easy it is to get started! If you have questions, please include them in your message when you click the I Want to Help button above. But...if you’re ready to get involved, sign up at https://aahsplanespotter.com/.

About AMERICAN AVIATION HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Location:

15146 TRANSISTOR LANE, HUNTINGTN BCH, CA 92649, US

Mission Statement

The primary objective of the organization is the preservation and dissemination of the rich heritage of American aviation. The Society maintains an extensive collection of books, documents and photographs that are available to researchers and aviation enthusiasts on a wide variety of American aviation history.

Description

AAHS has been in operation since 1956, collecting and preserving aviation photos and written material from members from all over the world. Over two million photos and the collection increases monthly! AAHS publishes a quarterly Journal, (continuously since 1956) regularly named one of the top 100 aviation publications in the US. Much of the image collection is in print form, and needs to be scanned and cataloged, without such action we cannot share them effectively with our members or the public.
