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.

The Alberta Aviation Museum is committed to keeping that aviation heritage alive by sharing their stories, offering educational programs and producing online content.

Important note for those attending Open Cockpit Day. There is road construction on the access road to the museum and Airport Road. Some of the regular overflow parking spots will not be available and people may need to park further away. Please be patient and mindful of other drivers, visitors and the neighbourhoods.
