The Aviation Museum Olomouc was founded in July 2009 as an idea of aviation collector and theatre actor Zdenek Svobodnik. The co-founder, Dr. Roman Sperl has been a significant supporter of the museum as well. He is a collector of aviation technology and, among other things, has helped immensely with the expansion of exhibits leading to increasing interest and international acclaim.
The museum team is made up of people of diverse expertise, from aircraft mechanics, veteran and active pilots, engineers, to "mere" aviation and aircraft hobbyists associated in the 1st Training Air Regiment. Together they are building this Aviation museum focused mainly on the history of Czechoslovak aviation.
