Naming Opportunities


Planes of Fame Air Museum at the Santa Maria Airport will be a world class institution that honors our past and builds our future. The museum will be a landmark center for education, preservation, and inspiration that will serve generations to come.

Naming Opportunities provide individuals, families, and organizations the unique opportunity to sponsor one of the museum’s iconic spaces and establish a lifelong association with the institution through a legacy gift. The generosity of Legacy Gift donors will bring to fruition a historical and educational center that will stand as a one-of-a-kind institution that will be a pride of the community. 

For more information, contact the Director of Development Jane Hinton by emailing

Legacy gifts are donations of $250,000 and above. Naming opportunity gifts vary depending on the size and prominence of a space. To learn more about specific naming opportunities, please contact Jane Hinton at
