The Great War Flying Museum

We are honoured to have such a prestigious attraction steps from our front door.  The museum is open from 11:00 to 16:00 weekends and holidays starting at the end of May until the end of September.  Stop in and see not only the aircraft used during World War I, but also various artifacts that will take you back in time.  Please visit their Website

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum

Located at the Hamilton Airport in Mount Hope Ontario, this museum features the aircraft used by Canadians during the Second World War.   It is only a 20 minute flight from us here at the Brampton Flight Centre. There are only two Lancaster Bombers flying in the world today, and one of them is here at CWHM. Brampton Flying Club Members Richard Pulley and Don Fisher are two of the pilots who fly this historic aircraft on display at the museum. Website

The Canadian Air & Space Museum

The museum showcases the history of aviation in the Toronto Area, and celebrates the many aerospace accomplishments of Canadians.  Don’t miss the full scale replica of the Avro Arrow CF 105 that first flew at Toronto’s Malton Airport in 1958.  The museum is home to the Annual Wings & Wheels Heritage Festival, where you will be able to take an introductory flight with one of BFC’s highly trained instructors.  We hope to see you there in May. Website
