Be sure to visit the Henry B. Tippie National Aviation Education Center (NAEC), located at the Dallas Executive Airport, provides hands-on learning opportunities, an immersive history experience and activities for all ages. Our mission is to Honor the Past, Empower the Future.

The NAEC is the flagship of the American Airpower Heritage Museum (AAHM), an affiliate of the Commemorative Air Force. The Henry B. Tippie National Aviation Education Center was named in honor of Henry B. Tippie, a World War II veteran.

Why do we have multiple addresses?

Because we work with a direct mail company to fulfill merchandise from fundraising campaigns, some mail from CAF RISE ABOVE will have a Topeka, KS address. Our home office in Minnesota also fulfills orders from our website or donations via phone. All donations – whether made via direct mail, email or phone – are judiciously used by CAF RISE ABOVE for the RISE ABOVE educational outreach program, aircraft maintenance and other administrative costs.
