One of the most highly requested experiences at The Hangar Flight Museum is the ability to sit in the aircraft. These 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. This event is made possible thanks to support from RJC Engineers.

Choose when to come based on your favourite plane, or the date you're available for a visit, or come see all 5 planes this summer! Yearly membership rates are great value for experiencing all that The Hangar has to offer this summer. The aircraft* open this summer are:

Avro Lancaster: Sunday June 30, Saturday July 13, Saturday August 3, Sunday August 11, Monday September 2.
F-86 Sabre: Sunday June 23, Sunday July 7, Saturday July 27, Saturday August 10, Sunday August 25.
