Collection and Research

Library and Archives

Housing the finest collection of its kind in Canada, the Museum’s Library and Archives is dedicated to fostering an understanding of the role aviation played in the history of Canada. As well, it serves to highlight Canada’s exceptional contributions to the development of aviation worldwide.

Set up originally to meet the needs of Museum staff researching exhibitions and restoration projects, the Library and Archives has become a busy research centre for people from across Canada and around the world. You can seek out information on all types of flying machines, engines, aviation personalities, and company histories — whether it’s for an article or book, a school assignment, or a personal interest.
