UPCOMING EVENTS

Due to the updated Covid-19 related restrictions announced on September 15, 2021, there are currently no upcoming events scheduled at The Hangar. 

NOW BOARDING: OPEN AIRCRAFT DAYS (FINISHED)

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. On Saturdays and Sundays in August and until September 15, 2021 we offered the opportunity to step back in time by stepping into our planes. The planes that were accessible this year: Avro Lancaster, F-86 Sabre, Twin Otter, and Douglas DC-3.

The full schedule was:

SATURDAY AUGUST 7: Twin Otter

SUNDAY AUGUST 8: DC-3

SATURDAY AUGUST 14: Avro Lancaster

SUNDAY AUGUST 15: F-86 Sabre

SATURDAY AUGUST 21: DC-3

SUNDAY AUGUST 22: Twin Otter

SATURDAY AUGUST 28: Avro Lancaster

SUNDAY AUGUST 29: F-86 Sabre

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 4: DC-3

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 5: Avro Lancaster

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 11: Twin Otter

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 12: F-86 Sabre

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 18: DC-3   Cancelled 

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 19: Twin Otter Cancelled 

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 25: Avro Lancaster Cancelled 

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 26: F-86 Sabre Cancelled 

 

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

*changes to this schedule may occur, with a substitute aircraft if necessary

The new Covid-19 restrictions announced by the Province on September 15, 2021 have caused the last four days of this event to be cancelled. 

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 and to the White Hat volunteers from the airport who volunteered at the event! 

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: 

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.
