The CATP Museum is a non-profit, charitable organization founded and operated by volunteers. The Museum is dedicated to the preservation of the history of the British  Commonwealth Air Training Plan and serves as a unique memorial to those airmen who trained and served, and especially those who died, while serving their country in the air war of 1939-1945. 

This is the only Museum in the world dedicated solely to this goal and we think it is fitting that it is located in Manitoba where so much of the training was carried out. At the time the Plan was signed in December 1939,  Canada had only 4,000 people in the Royal Canadian Air Force but enrollment reached 250,000 by the end of 1943.

Aircrew personnel from Australia, New Zealand, England and Canada were all trained under The Plan.  Canada was chosen as the training country because of its preferable climate and the fact it was far from the dangers of enemy activity.  The Plan was referred to by Winston Churchill as Canada’s greatest contribution to the allied victory and referred to by President Roosevelt as the “aerodrome of democracy.”
