A Permanent Home – On October 7, 1984, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II officially opened the brand-new museum. A number of other honours and milestones were received and achieved in the ensuing years:

  • The Mayor’s Volunteer Service Award was received in 1992.
  • Our Skyways children’s interactive play area opened in 1994.
  • In 1995, the museum hosted the International Civil Aviation Organization award ceremony, which named James A. Richardson as the person most influential in developing Canada’s aviation industry, which was attended by representatives from all levels of government.
