Licensed pilot and New Jersey native Samuel Brozina provides a closer look at his local army air field museum in Millville, NJ.
Samuel Brozina, Millville, NJ, is a licensed pilot and the proud owner of his very own vintage low-wing monoplane aircraft. A lifelong aviation enthusiast currently working as a landscaping service foreman in his home city of Millville, Samuel Brozina shares details of his local army air field museum – Millville Army Air Field Museum in Millville, New Jersey.
“Millville Army Air Field Museum promises military air power, warbirds, static displays, food and family fun, and more,” says Brozina, a local pilot and landscaping service foreman.
“Honoring our aviation heritage, Millville Army Air Field Museum is preserving the Millville Army Air Field story and its impact on the world,” Brozina continues. The Millville Army Air Field Museum, he explains, is dedicated to telling the stories of those who trained there, those who died there, and those who went on to serve the United States in World War II and other wars.
A licensed pilot, Samuel Brozina is the proud owner of a vintage ERCO Ercoupe low-wing monoplane aircraft. “Drive by any small airport and you’re bound to see any number of Cessnas, Pipers, and Beechcraft, but you probably won’t see any Ercoupes,” says Brozina of the rare vintage aircraft, now out of production for exactly 50 years.
Only around 2,000 Ercoupes survive today, with fewer than 1,000 still registered to fly, according to the licensed pilot, a New Jersey native born and raised in the popular city of Millville.
Brozina’s own Ercoupe came from nearby Quakertown in Pennsylvania, around 50 miles north of Philadelphia and less than 100 miles from his home city of Millville, NJ. “I was amazed to find one so close by,” he reveals.
Turning his focus back to Millville Army Air Field Museum, Samuel goes on to explain how the popular local attraction is supported by memberships, sponsorships, and event attendance. “Memberships, sponsorships, and event attendance all help Millville Army Air Field Museum to preserve the airport’s great history,” adds Millville-based Brozina.
Located in Cumberland County, Millville is popular with residents and visitors alike, boasting attractions including the Levoy Theatre, Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center, and Maurice River Bluffs Nature Preserve, in addition to Millville Army Air Field Museum.
