UPCOMING EVENTS

We're looking forward to celebrating Family Day and National Aviation Day in February. 

NATIONAL AVIATION DAY

Each year on the anniversary of the first powered flight in Canada, the Silver Dart on February 23, we celebrate the opportunities that aviation has provided to our society. This event is aimed to entertain the entire family. 

Thank you to YYC who partnered with us to make this event happen!

For 2022 our celebrations will include:

National Aviation Weekend (Saturday February 26 & Sunday February 27): Interpretive activities for the whole family! More details coming soon. 

In 2020 we had a photo booth featuring the inside of our Lancaster since in February it was too chilly to be inside the real plane. Here are a few of the fun photos from the photo booth: 

NOW BOARDING: OPEN AIRCRAFT DAYS 

One of the most highly requested experiences at The Hangar Flight Museum is the ability to sit in our aircraft. Our aircraft are historical artifacts so we do our best to protect them by performing preventative maintenance as well as requiring clean closed-toe shoes for this experience. We usually offer this experience on Saturdays and Sundays in the summer months. We will update this page with 2022 information.

The planes that were accessible last year: Avro Lancaster, F-86 Sabre, Twin Otter, and Douglas DC-3.

Closed-toe shoes must be worn for this experience. Gloves and bump-hats will be provided for entry into the Avro Lancaster. 

ANNUAL FATHER'S DAY WEEKEND EVENT: WINGS AND WHEELS

Each year on Father's Day weekend we partner with local car clubs to bring in special "wheels" to join our wings. It's a ton of fun for the whole family and includes activities such as: touring the inside of a selection of our aircraft, crafts, vehicle show and shine, and helicopter city tours. 

ANNUAL REMEMBRANCE DAY SERVICE

Each year on Remembrance Day we gather to ensure we never forget. The helicopter landing area behind The Hangar Flight Museum was once a parade square during the Second World War as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. Our wonderful neighbours Eagle Copters have been kind enough to partner with us to host the service in this space for the past few years. Snow or shine we find a way to remember. 

In 2021 our service was live broadcasted and livestreamed with CTV Calgary (CTVNewsCalgary.ca). 

In the afternoon the Museum was open from 1pm-5pm with admission by donation.
