In the interest of protecting the public health of our staff and visitors, the Museum is temporarily closing to the public starting Saturday November 14th.

Introduction

In honor of National Hispanic Heritage month, this online exhibit looks at some Hispanic and Latino aviators that made significant contributions to the history of aerospace.  This is by no means a comprehensive collection, but aims to look at a variety of people from many different countries from North, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean. 

Wings from Brazil, Mexico, Colombia and Cuba.

In addition to this exhibit, the San Diego Air & Space Museum has many related online resources:
