Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum

Canadian Warplane Heritage MuseumThe Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum's goal is to acquire, document, preserve, and maintain a complete collection of aircraft that were flown by Canadians and the Canadian military services from the beginning of World War II to the present.

The Museum currently has a collection of over forty aircraft, and funding for its projects comes mainly from membership fees, private donations, and sponsorships.

In addition to the Museum's collection, the Museum offers member flights. This is the only place in the world where one can fly in a Fairey Firefly, Westland Lysander, or the Avro Lancaster. You must have a Museum membership to be able to book a flight.

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum is currently housed in a 108,000 square foot delta-wing shaped building. It was officially opened on April 26, 1996.

Photos in this section were taken on 22 October 2015. Much of the individual aircraft descriptions were taken from the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum's narratives, as the aircraft histories are focused on the Canadian point of view.
