My husband and I toured this little place and we enjoyed it! Although it is not a huge museum, it is still interesting to see and to hear how the cadets trained and to see the planes that are here. If you are interested in planes, and in hearing about the cadet program, this is for you!

There are static displays of several well known aircraft on site. They have an American F105 Thunderchief and a Russian Mig from the Vietnam era as well as several other aircraft.

Thank you for your comment, however, we do not have a Russian Mig, we do have a Northrop F-5 from the Marine Corps Top Gun school. Did you take the tour or just look at the aircraft outside? There are many, many other items as well as aircraft inside the many buildings. More

Silver Wings airfield is a 1900' grass strip, so it is an exact match to the WWI era of flight training cadets! Errol is quite knowledgeable, and was a true joy to learn about this period of aviation history.

This museum has a lot of potential, and, if it grows, can be a leading attraction in Eureka Springs. As a history buff, I, personally, would like to see it survive. In the interest of helping these gentleman realize their vision for the museum, I offer this constructive criticism: the tours given by the owner, Errol Severe, should account for... More

First let me say that I am sorry to have obviously offended this lady. She completely misunderstood what I meant by saying that men want to protect women. Why wouldn't a man want to protect a woman? That doesn't mean a woman is less equal to a man, that means that a true gentleman, of which we seem to be... More

Like others who anticipated a fully developed museum, my family and I discovered "a dream in the making", nestled in the wilderness of the Ozark Hills near Eureka Springs, AR. Just as Disney Land and Silver Dollar City had a start-up period, this big idea is turning out to be a dream come true for the fellows who have worked... More

I've heard of this place before, so I stopped by to check the place out. It was a pretty cool place! I got to meet some interesting people, and ask some questions that I've wanted to ask for a long time. The place is very fun and interesting for any aviation fan and train fan (there is a little railroad... More

We spent $82 only to have him speak down to us in a condescending manner for an hour and a half. Find something else to do.

We are sorry you won't be back, but we do teach correct history, sometimes customers think they know more than we do. Most folks love what we do. Errol More

Well, I went to this attraction in 2004. There was supposed to be an "air show" there but when I arrived, there were only a few little static displays and a helicopter flying around. I was charged $10.00 for nothing. The museum itself was also a disappointment, as there really wasn't much to see. I felt it was a rip-off.

We are very sorry that you were disappointed in your visit to Aviation Cadet World. We would have liked to been told of this when you were here. I'm a bit confused as to when you did visit. Your review talks about an airshow in 2004 (which we were prevented from having by a court order, to late to cancel... More

Some cool airplanes on display. Wasn't anything spectacular but definitely worth a look. Probably better for kids than adults.

Errol, the founder spent over 3 hours with my husband and me, showing off his vision for the future. We were completely blown away by his hospitality! The museum is really interesting and it is still in progress! I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in flying or military history.
