Our arrival time is approaching. Stay tuned as we countdown to the grand opening of the new Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada in early 2022!
GLIMPSE OF OUR COLLECTION
The museum possesses one of the most significant bush plane collections globally. It is also home to an extensive collection of aircraft ranging from bush flying, military, passenger, experimental aircraft, and thousands of aviation artefacts.
PLANES TAKING FLIGHT
Our airplanes are regularly arriving at the new museum. Like a graceful ballet, they are first cleaned and then carefully parked in place, waiting for construction to begin on the exhibits that will tell their stories.
Some planes have been lifted to the ceiling – seemingly coming to life and taking flight once more!
We are on the journey to transformation,
and we need your help to continue our mission.
Learn how you can propel us today!
Our Journey to Transformation.
Shovels broke ground May 1, 2020, and just over a year later, the museum is 99% complete!
Along the way, we have tracked the incredible transformation from an empty space to what is becoming a stunning new structure, taking two pictures each week and creating this time-lapse.
Thank you to our construction partners PCL and architects Reich+Petch and A49, for helping our vision become a reality.
