The Museum and restoration site is open year round, and houses over 25 aircraft both static and flying. The aircraft range from a WWII Handley Page Hampden to a T-33 Silver Star. The Canadian Museum of Flight possesses the only displayed Handley Page Hampden in the world. On February 13th, 2002, after a 22 year restoration, Museum volunteers saw the 1937 Waco AQC Cabin biplane take to the skies. This restoration was done solely by the Museum’s volunteers whose age range from 16 to 82. Many of our volunteers spent their career in the aviation industry just to retire and put in full time hours at the Museum. To date we have seven aircraft flying: Tiger Moth, Fleet Finch, SE5A replica, Waco AQC Cabin, Waco INF, Mustang replica and the Harvard II. Restoration started on the Fleet Canuck in January 2003, which when completed, will be the Museum’s eighth flying aircraft. The Museum is a very “hands-on” facility. A large selection of our aircraft can be touched, and the children can feel that aircraft are made not only from aluminum, but also wood and fabric. The Museum is constantly undergoing display changes to allow our visitors to see something new each time they stop by. Visitors can take a chronological walk around the Museum starting with WWI to present day, and can see how large a part Canada has played in aviation history.Official Website
