For centuries, Canada’s major rivers have acted as highways for northern travellers. Canoes and dog teams were the most reliable transportation in the north until 1924, when a Canadian company called Vickers Canada designed the Vedette. From that point on, waterways became the landing strips for a new generation of pioneers and their bush planes – aircraft equipped with skis, floats or wheels – depending on the weather and terrain. To see the world’s only complete example of the amazing Vickers Vedette flying canoe and other historic planes of the golden age of bush flying, join us in June for a guided tour. Tours are free with admission. Tours are always free for members. Tours are held at 2:00 pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
