Overview
More
For more than 80 years, Edmonton’s Blatchford Field was the center of a bustling aviation community that spurred the growth of the city, the region, and the North. Hundreds of men and women let their dreams take flight from this historic airfield, flying everything from biplanes to bush planes, bombers to jets. The museum, located in the last remaining double-long, double-wide hangar from the World War II era, is committed to keeping that aviation heritage alive by sharing their stories, offering education programs, and providing new and exciting opportunities for families to explore Edmonton’s rich aviation history.

We weren’t sure what we would find here. We spent the better part of 3 hours learning about the aviation history of the Canadian armed forces. Even more interesting was learning about the importance of bush pilots and women that served in the armed forces....More

The planes. The history. The building. The people. All top notch. We met a docent who told us much of the back story about the airport and its fascinating history. We are so happy we visited
