Collections & Archives

MUSEUM STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS HAVE DEDICATED UNTOLD HOURS TO PRESERVING OUR AVIATION HERITAGE AND DEVELOPING THIS WORLD-CLASS COLLECTION

We have been curating our extensive collection of more than 90 historic aircraft, 70,000 artefacts, archival documents, texts, and photographs for more than 40 years. We are proud to have one of Canada’s largest aviation heritage collections. 

The museum has an estimated 60,000 images consisting of black and white prints and negatives, colour prints and negatives, slides, and digital images. 

Our task for the last decade has been to digitize and catalogue our entire collection into our computer database.

Very shortly, members from around the world will be able to access our database! To find out when it will be available, please subscribe to our Boarding Pass Newsletter.
