At the Pearson Field Education Center, we are passionate about our mission to "educate, inspire and promote the Golden Age of Aviation at Pearson Field." Our roots include two decades of work by the Pearson Field Historical Society, Fort Vancouver National Trust (a 501c3 nonprofit since 1998) and their supporters. In 2014, PFEC was the recipient of the Washington Aviation Association Northwest Spirit Award. PFEC builds on 110 years of rich aviation and cultural history at Pearson Field and the surrounding Historic Reserve. Pearson Field is the oldest continuously operating airfield in the Pacific NW and one of the two oldest continuously operating airfields in the United States.
