Adopt-a-Plane Program | Air Zoo - Kalamazoo, MI
















Do you have a favorite aircraft or space artifact?

As we celebrate our 40th Anniversary in 2019 we are pleased to offer you an exciting opportunity - you can now adopt your favorite Air Zoo plane or artifact! Annual adoption is only $50 and your contribution goes towards the care for your artifact for one year. You will also receive communications and information from your favorite Air Zoo flying machine and be reflected as an Adoptive Pilot here at the Air Zoo! Really want to get involved? Join the Curator Club for only $100 more and take part in guided care of your artifact twice per year! 

HINT: Adoption makes a great gift!

We hope you’ll join us in caring for this great looking bunch of airplanes and space artifacts who love seeing you every time you visit. Ask for more information at your next visit or check out Adopt-a-Plane to adopt your favorite today!
