We invite all those who have an interest in aviation, education, or community service to explore what we have to offer at the Illinois Aviation Museum at Bolingbrook’s Clow International Airport. There are many opportunities to volunteer, programs to participate in, and ways to support this exciting new venture!

We ask for your generous financial support, and welcome your involvement as we work to make this organization grow.

The stone patio adjacent to Charlie’s Restaurant has been designated as the Friends of Aviation Plaza.

The design of the plaza includes four areas that will accommodate engraved paving bricks.

Illinois Aviation Museum has established a program whereby you can order a paving brick in honor or memory of a loved one or to commemorate a special occasion or event such as:

New baby
Earning your pilot’s license
They make great gifts, too!

You or someone you love can become a permanent part of our local aviation community!

Bricks are available in two sizes:

4″ x 8″ with 3 lines of text,
13 characters* each
8″ x 8″ with 5 lines of text,
13 characters* each
You may order up to 4 bricks of each size at a time.  If you wish to order more than 4 bricks of any one size, you will need to place a separate order for the additional brick(s).

Once you have placed your online order via our secure Paypal gateway, you will be redirected to a page where you can enter the personalization information.


Or click here to download the form, which you can send in with your check.  (Please note that the 12″x12″ size is no longer available.)

*Each letter, space, or punctuation mark counts as one (1) character.
