Scope of project
We need your help! Over the years, some of our devoted members have donated their aviation book collections. As a result, we have approximately 5,000 books which need to be catalogued by July, 2022, or until all books have been entered.

Volunteers in this position will mostly sit at a desk as they enter book information to our internal library system. We will train you and be available for software support during all shifts.

Aviation experience and knowledge is a plus, but is not required. However, if you have an interest in aviation, this work would be very interesting because of the plethora of books you’ll be exposed to. Our office is located in the historic Flabob Airport (Riverside County) which is a location of great interest to those with a passion for aviation.

  • Please only apply if you are available on Tuesdays, Thursdays, or Saturdays from 11am-3pm as this work is only done on our premises during these hours. Volunteers are welcome to help all three days each week, or just one if that’s what suits your schedule.
Thank you for your interest in The American Aviation Historical Society!

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.
