Finally Re-Opening on Monday July 19th!

We are so excited to announce that we are re-opening on Monday July 19th! Loosening restrictions were announced as more people receive vaccinations and Covid numbers decrease. Let’s hope that this time everyone continues to take precautions, vaccinations keep going up, and Covid numbers keep going down. Note that some restrictions must still be observed, visitors must be fully vaccinated, wear masks, and capacity is limited, but it is great to be re-opening! We are fortunate to have two summer students this year, they have been getting the hangar prepared and are looking forward to greeting visitors. Our hours will be regular summer hours: 10 am – 4 pm, seven days a week!

We hope to see you soon! We have an important story to tell and so many amazing artifacts – aircraft, vehicles, and so much more. Did you know our hangar is an original from the BCATP here in Brandon’s #12 SFTS and dates back to 1941? Actually, Monday the 19th is the 80th anniversary of the grand opening of #12 SFTS! When you are here, bring a camera and share your photos on social media using the hashtags #catpm and #airmuseum. (all of our social media platforms are linked in the post previous to this one – be sure to follow us!) Our gift shop has a range of items for sale too! Here are a few photos to get you in the mood!

The CATPM mission is to commemorate the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan by telling its story, preserving its artifacts, and paying tribute to the thousands of Air Force personnel, who gave their lives during WWII.
