Welcome 

Our first year of operation has been eventful and we have accomplished a great deal.

A major event was Aviation Days, a celebration of Saskatchewan and Canadian aviation history and achievement. We hosted over a thousand guests and their consensus was that the Museum has a great deal to offer. We are already planning next year’s event and we are confident in another success.

Perhaps the highlight of our year was our involvement in the recovery of Cessna 180 CF-JDO, which went missing in 1959 in Peter Pond Lake with two souls on board. The airplane was found last year and museum personnel led the recovery operation. When the event caught the public eye, the story became international and the Museum became well-recognized for our commitment to public service.

A happier story is the success of the Tiger Moth and the pleasure a ride in a historical aircraft has given to over 50 people.

We are happy to announce that with more people becoming aware that Saskatchewan now has a dedicated Aviation Museum we are receiving more donations of aviation artifacts. One recent donation is a rare A40 Continental engine, which was Continental’s first successful air-cooled aircraft engine.

An important goal for the New Year is to build a replica of Cessna 180 CF-JDO. This will be a challenge for our volunteers, but they are ready for this important project. We need a lot of help with the project, but I know we have the talent and energy to do a first-class job.  Give us a call or drop in for a chat if you can help.

Funding remains a major and I encourage you to renew your membership and/or make a donation. I look forward to seeing you soon.
