The Western Canada Aviation Museum offers a unique mix of history and science. Enter through 'Gate 1' - the original Trans Canada Airlines Avrocar (now Air Canada) passenger terminal - step back in time and let the pioneer aviators of the north take you on an inspirational journey through time!

Incorporated in 1974, the Western Canada Aviation Museum has grown into an award-winning heritage institution dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Canada's aviation history. The aircraft on display reflect the history of aviation development in Winnipeg, Manitoba and Canada and include examples ranging from bush planes to transport, military, private and commercial aircraft.

Junkers

Your visit will be filled with tales from the sky, great ideas (and not so great ideas) in flight, and a true appreciation for the adventuring spirit.

The original aircraft hangar, including several one-of-a-kind aircraft, such as Canada's first helicopter, the CL-84 Tilt-wing, our 'flying saucer' Avrocar, and of course, historic military jets, bushplanes and commercial aircraft.

A fully enclosed flight deck to watch the landings and takeoffs at Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport is one of the other attractions. The collection is housed in an original Trans-Canada Air Lines aircraft hangar and includes a recreated terminal departure centre 10AElectra and several one-of-a-kind aircraft such as Canada's first helicopter, the CL-84 "Tilt-wing," Avrocar "flying saucer" (full-scale movie model), historic military jets, bush planes and commercial aircraft.
