2024 ACPC Gives Back Charity

Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) is proud to introduce the Henry B. Tippie National Aviation Education Center as the featured charity for the 2024 Air Carriers Purchasing Conference, being held in Dallas. The Henry B. Tippie National Aviation Education Center (NAEC), named in honor of the late Mr. Henry B. Tippie, a World War II veteran, is the flagship of the American Airpower Heritage Museum (AAHM). The NAEC, located at the Dallas Executive Airport, provides hands-on learning opportunities and experiences for all ages. The 47,000 square foot facility is dedicated to education with the mission to Honor the Past, Empower the Future.

The museum wing includes the world’s largest collection of authentic World War II nose art, a theater, and exhibits with artifacts to honor the contributions of diverse populations. Visitors will be inspired by aviation and history while learning impactful stories of heroes in World War II.

The James C. Ray Education Wing houses workshops, leadership simulations, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programs in a more formal setting. Visit us to be inspired by aviation and history while developing leadership and “21st century” job skills. No matter the career, strong skills in communication, creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and citizenship will help individuals of all ages be more successful.
