Description

Step into a world where aviation history comes alive with a Flight Museum Tour at the Canadian Museum of Flight, located at Langley Airport in British Columbia.

This museum stands as a testament to the passion and dedication of aviation enthusiasts who have worked tirelessly to preserve and showcase Canada's rich aerial heritage. Their commitment is evident in the diverse collection of over 25 aircraft, ranging from iconic World War II planes like the Handley Page Hampden to meticulously restored biplanes and modern flying machines.

Key Attractions 

One of the museum's standout attractions is the Handley Page Hampden, the only one of its kind on public display anywhere in the world. Visitors can witness the painstaking restoration efforts firsthand, such as the remarkable 22-year project that saw the 1937 Waco AQC Cabin biplane take flight once more. Such endeavors are a testament to the dedication of the museum's volunteers, whose ages span from 16 to 82, many of whom have devoted their careers to aviation.

What sets the Canadian Museum of Flight apart is its interactive approach to showcasing aircraft history. Unlike many museums, here you can touch and feel the aircraft, gaining a tactile understanding of their construction from materials like aluminum, wood, and fabric. The museum's layout invites visitors on a chronological journey through Canadian aviation history, from the early days of World War I to the cutting-edge aircraft of today.

Accessibility and Amenities

Accessibility is also a priority at the museum, which is fully wheelchair accessible with convenient parking and transit options nearby. For those interested in taking a piece of aviation history home, the museum's gift shop offers an array of aviation-themed souvenirs, from books and posters to apparel and toys.

As a member of the Canadian Aeronautical Preservation Association (CAPA), the museum not only preserves aircraft but also promotes Canadian aviation history and ensures that significant artifacts remain in Canada for future generations to appreciate.

Winter Visitor Delights

Despite the colder months, the Canadian Museum of Flight remains a vibrant destination. In December alone, the museum welcomed 750 visitors, including 372 guests during the festive week between Christmas and New Year's. This surge in attendance reflects the museum's growing appeal as a year-round attraction, offering a unique blend of educational exhibits and seasonal charm.
