    At the turn of the 20th Century, much of Canada was still a vast and unexplored frontier. Fur-clad and courageous, pilot and plane often disappeared for days on end with little – if any – radio communication and compasses rendered unreliable by magnetic interference. A uniquely Canadian breed, bush pilots endured incredible hardships while navigating the impenetrable terrain of the Canadian North with rudimentary maps bearing only one word: UNCHARTED.

    Join us as we pay tribute to the bush planes that made history, as well as the men and women who flew them. Tours are free with admission. Tours are always free for members. Tours are held at 2:00 pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
