Toyoyama-Town Aichi Museum of Flight
Aichi Museum of Flight, exhibiting the proud history of Aichi's technology and expertise!
The area surrounding the Nagoya Airfield has been receiving a lot of worldwide attention as the "Home of the MRJ" (Mitsubishi Regional Jet), the first commercial jet airliner produced in Japan, due to the fact that several of its development and manufacturing facilities are within that area. This makes it a unique location in the country.
On November 30th, 2017 the brand new Aichi Museum of Flight inaugurated featuring a huge hangar-like building that houses real aircraft, such as the YS-11 - a turboprop airliner made in Japan during the 60's by the Nihon Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation consortium - and the MU-2, a high-wing twin-engine turboprop made by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries from 1963 to 1986. Other facilities include a Science Laboratory, Orientation Theater, Observation Deck on the roof and much more, all conceived to educate and nurture the dreams of the next generation of aerospace engineers. Just a short walk distance from neighbor Airport Walk mall - which features a wide array of merchants and gourmet options - it's a great option for sightseeing and learning, easily accessible from downtown Nagoya. By the way, Nagoya Airfield is also known as Komaki Airport or Nagoya Airport and before Centrair's inauguration, was the international airport that served the region.
