The seeds of the Istanbul Aviation Museum were first planted by İrfan Tansel, an air force commander who came up with the notion of establishing an aviation museum in Turkey. In 1963, he issued a warrant to protect special aircrafts and other units of the Air Force, and on May 15, 1971, Turkey’s first aviation museum officially opened in Cumaovası. However, issues like runway repair and civil air traffic continually plagued the museum, and so construction began on a new location in Yeşilköy. In 1985, the new museum opened, and it continues to exist today.
