Students explore the impact of aviation and the development of Canada’s aerospace industry since our first powered flight in 1909. The tour covers important individuals, events and aircraft from early aviation in Canada through the end of the First World War including the Aerial Experiment Association, Wallace Turnbull’s wind tunnel and the Montreal Air Meet of 1910.
Discover the evolution of aviation and its impacts through time by comparing the modern era to life in the past. Through the lens of aircraft histories, museum guides will lead engaging group discussions about the social and economic changes that came about as a result of this dynamic industry.
