BECOME A VOLUNTEER

Since its inception, volunteers have been the lifeblood of the Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada, committing hundreds of hours of dedicated service to help the museum’s transformation become a reality. 

The museum’s diverse volunteer force, composed of engineers, former members of the Royal Canadian Air Force, bush pilots, professional airplane mechanics, retired teachers, and from all walks of life, bring personal passion and expertise to their restoration and conservation work.

Our volunteer contingents work seamlessly with museum staff and have contributed to nearly all areas of operations within the museum.

Volunteer Job Descriptions:

Aircraft Mover – Assisting in moving historic aircraft from storage locations around Winnipeg and the airport into coordinated positions in the new building. This role is physically demanding. Experience moving aircraft preferred.

Aircraft Cleaner & Conservationist – This role entails cleaning the aircraft and artefacts once they have arrived at the new museum. 

Aircraft Repair & Restoration – Are you experienced in aircraft maintenance and repair? This role entails fixing minor damage, applying decals, and paint touch-ups. We have two restoration projects currently underway in our warehouse on Church Avenue.  These projects are ¾ of the way complete, and we’re looking for help to finish the airplanes so that they are ready for display in the new museum.  

Overall, for each of these roles, we seek volunteers with great patience, exceptional attention to detail, and who are comfortable using tools.  Aircraft experience is an asset.  These shifts are from 9 am to 2 pm, and you can choose between Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
