Vintage Bookstore

The VAA Bookstore was created as a way to help raise funds for the Vintage Aircraft Association and give aviation enthusiast a way to share their book collections with others.  We take donations throughout the year and then re-sell the books at reasonable prices so that others can enjoy them.  Help us spread the word about our awesome Bookstore by liking and sharing our Facebook page @Vintage Aircraft Association Bookstore

*NEW for 2021-
Saturday Hours!


VAA Bookstore Hours

The VAA Bookstore is open Monday through Saturday* 9 a.m to 5 p.m. the week of AirVenture


The VAA Bookstore is a great place to volunteer during AirVenture! You can sign up for one shift, or as many as you like throughout the week. Shifts are two hours long, and you get to be in the coolest place at AirVenture- the air conditioned bookstore! Your responsibilities will include taking payment for purchases (cashier) and watching the store. We will be happy to do a brief training on record keeping and how to process cash and credit card purchases. Shift schedules are as follows:

9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m
3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m


We would not be able to have a bookstore without the support of our aviation friends and donors.  We are collecting aviation books and magazines year-round.   We have categories that include The Golden Age, Pre-War, Post-War, Juvenile/Young Adult, Biography, Manuals/Technical, Better Books, paperbacks and more.  To donate you may drop off your books, your chapter’s books or any books you want to donate during the week of AirVenture at the Bookstore Mon-Sat 9AM to 5Pm or mail them to:
