The Canadian Historical Aircraft Association, or CH2A, home to Windsor’s own Lancaster bomber and Mosquito KB161, is located at the west end of the Windsor International Airport, just south of Airport Road. We occupy the original hangar of #7 Elementary Flying Training School which was built in 1940 as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan.For Canadian Aviation Museum and beyond, use our Windsor trip planner to get the most from your Windsor vacation.
The CH2A has maintained a fleet of flyable historic aircraft. Our pilots volunteer their time to take the aircraft to air shows so that people everywhere get the chance to experience these types of aircraft. Every time you see a “Yellowbird” in the air we are honouring our veterans. Members can purchase a 20-minute “Honour Flight” in one of our DeHavilland Chipmunks, Boeing Stearman biplane and Harvard.
Our dedicated volunteers are presently restoring the City of Windsor’s FM 212 Lancaster as well as a Mosquito Bomber KB161. As well, our volunteers give tours to school children and other groups, telling the tales of our veterans to honour their service. Volunteers from our archive group collect the stories and artifacts of our veterans and proudly display these in the Wes Bridgen Archive room.
We truly are where aviation history comes alive! Consider becoming a member and help us continue to preserve and honour!

I really enjoyed my visit to the Canadian Aviation Museum. There's a nice balance between airworthy aircraft and restoration projects. Nice to see the progress on the Lancaster and Mosquito projects. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The day we were there they had a Harvard, Chipmunk and Stearman flying. Great to watch them taxi out fir their flight. Highly recommended!
Really enjoyed my visit to this unique space.The history and stories behind the exhibits were very informative and intriguing. Our tour guide Keleen (think that was her name), was very friendly and interactive. The staff and persons working there were all friendly and tool time out of working on planes to chat with us. One highlight was meeting Ron,an ex pilot who has a plane in his honour on display. He was so amiable and you can see his passion and satisfaction from years in aviation. The display areas were good and the "Bad Penny" story really resonated. Had to get the book. Excellent learning opportunity for teaching history if you are an educator as well.
Great collection of historic aircraft in static displays, while being refurbished, and that you can ride! The best part of our visit was the people who work and volunteer their time to share the stories of the collection and their passion for preserving these legendary legacies. We expected to be there a couple of hours; we were happy to continue exploring right up until closing time.
Enjoyed talking with the folks at the Aviation Museum. Didn't know that you can book flights in their restored planes. Planning to do that one day.
Amazing aircraft on display My tour guide was very knowledgeable and took his time in delivering a pleasant experience They have a gift shop and some of their aircraft are available for "stick time"
