The Hangar Flight Museum Seeking Board Applicants
to fill current and upcoming board vacancies
The Hangar Flight Museum seeks to be a premier destination to explore, engage, and experience the transformational power of flight. We provide a rich understanding and appreciation of the evolution of flight by telling stories related to our historic collection that provide inspiration to current and future generations. The history of aviation is closely tied to Canada’s development as a nation and to Calgary’s development as a vibrant, international city. Our museum tells this history, expands and inspires visitors’ knowledge of the stories surrounding aviation’s role in immigration, oil and gas exploration, war and civilian pleasure travel. The Museum is a Civic Partner of The City of Calgary and a large part of our collection is owned by The City. We are honored to be entrusted by The City and others who have donated artifacts to us with the stewardship of our collection for the benefit of Calgarians and visitors from around the world. The Hangar Flight Museum is finalizing its next multi-year strategic plan and will soon be launching an exciting fundraising campaign.
