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.

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

This visit was great. I was very surprised how big the building was and how many planes were in it. It was a very informative experience for me.

Great place to see some of aviation history. Children get to interact with planes, which allows their imagination to soar! great family outing great fun and a good place for the children and adults to learn some thing about the planes that protected Canada.
