Toyoyama-Town Aichi Museum of Flight
Aichi Museum of Flight opens in Fall of 2017!
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 housing 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 aircraft 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. Nagoya Airfield is also known as Komaki Airport or Nagoya Airport.
