Your students will explore the impact of aviation and the development of Canada’s aerospace industry since our first powered flight in 1909. The tour covers several important individuals and events, 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.
Iconic aircraft—including the de Havilland Canada Beaver and the Avro Arrow—are highlighted, as are made-in-Canada technologies such as Canadarm. The tour also involves a look at the aerospace contributions of exceptional Canadians, including Alexander Graham Bell, Commander Chris Hadfield, and Governor General Julie Payette.
