Long Island Attractions

The key for flying private aircraft into Republic Airport is the easy access they provide to Long Island attractions, like Walt Whitman’s Birthplace, Montauk Point Lighthouse, Camp Hero State Park, and even the American Airpower Museum – a museum whose stated mission is to preserve the “legacy of all Americans who have sacrificed themselves to defend our liberties and to educated a new generation regarding the courage, valor, and heroism of our nation’s citizen soldiers.”

The American Airpower Museum accomplishes this by providing access to the operational aircraft and armor used for these purposes as part of the museum’s collections and exhibits. It just so happens that the American Airpower Museum is conveniently located on the Republic Airport property making it an easy addition to your itinerary.
