Vintage Aircraft Flights


Whether reminiscing about days gone by or looking for that unique adventure, a member flight in a Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum aircraft is certainly a thrill of a lifetime! We are the only place in the world where you can fly in a rare Fairey Firefly, Westland Lysander or the famous Avro Lancaster.

Member flights make great gifts - Birthday, Christmas, Father's Day and Anniversary presents are taken care of easily. Make it a surprise and present someone a flight certificate for their special day.

So are you convinced? The only thing left to do is to purchase a Museum membership, pick your flight(Museum membership upgrade) and it's all blue skies ahead! Please note that you must have a Museum membership to be able to book a flight (Museum membership upgrade). This is a provision of our Insurance Policy and as such, no exceptions can be made. Also note that Student and Cadet Squadron memberships cannot be upgraded. Flight Certificates will be issued upon purchase and are valid for one person only and for one year from the date of purchase.


You can either purchase member flights online, at the Museum's Admission Desk or by phone.

Contact our Flight Coordinator, Laura Hassard-Moran (Tuesday to Saturday) at 905-679-4183 ext. 236 or at lhassard@warplane.com to arrange the exact time and date of your member flight. View our Flying Schedule

Cameras
Cameras are permitted on your flight provided they don't have a large lens. It is recommended that you attach your camera using a wrist strap.
