It will perhaps be a surprise to many non-locals that Edmonton played a prominent role in Canadian aviation history, both in civil aviation, as a base for bush pilots serving the vast territory to the north of the city, and in military aviation, during World War II and later.

This is a most interesting display with numerous aircraft and some replicas, covering a great deal of the aviation history of this part of Canada. It is possible to sit in some of the exhibits, and there are two microsoft static flight simulators. The staff were very helpful, and one gave us almost a guided tour on a quiet morning.... More

A staff member opened the door and I... More

While not a very large number of displays, there are enough "cool planes" for a couple hours with the kids. We were there with our boys (10 & 13) for a a couple of hours, looking at all the planes, watching the videos and reading the stories. There are a couple of "simulators" our boys just love. The volunteers on... More

Remembrance of a time when could fly some of these if you had ( have) a pilots license. Or remembering the good old days when Edmonton had a local airport. Batchford field.

This aviation museum features some of the old aircraft from the war along with some of the stories to back up when they were in use. Also aircraft used to transport passengers and freight to the north in Canada. There are also areas of interest of the different military groups that served the Edmonton area in the past and some...
