For more than 80 years Edmonton’s Blatchford Field was the centre of a bustling aviation community that spurred the growth of the city, the region and the North. Hundreds of men and women let their dreams take flight from this historic airfield, flying everything from biplanes to bush planes, bombers to jets.

Summer Drop-In programs for kids 3-8 are back, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Details here.
