Flying Force: The Prince George's County Police Aviation Unit


College Park Airport is home to two (2) Prince George's County Police helicopters, their pilots and crews. This exhibit provides a behind-the-scenes look at the daily life of the unit, its history and the dedicated unit. This is captured via candid large-format photographs taken on the ground and in the air.

Biological Flyers of College Park

February 27 - August 28

Hovering flight, soaring flight, speed flight, formation flight - all done around College Park and not by airplanes or helicopters! Biological Flyers of College Park explores the many different kinds of flight that birds and flying mammals can do in our neighborhood skies. Produced in collaboration with the M-NCPPC Park Rangers, Prince George's County Audubon Society, and Patuxent Bird club.



Within months of the end of WWII, the Engineering and Research Corporation (ERCO) began marketing it's spin-proof, stall-resistant, anyone-can-fly Ercoupe. The airplane was the work of the brilliant designer, Fred Weick, and was marketed as the epitome of a new era of modern living. This exhibit draws on the museum's vast ERCO collection to illuminate the design, marketing and worldwide success of the Ercoupe. It features an Ercoupe suspended in flight and a cutaway section, so visitors can see what makes this plane unique.
