Inspire Dreams of Flight
The next phase of upgrades to the visitor experience at The Hangar Flight Museum is going to include replacing the Tent Hangar with a more permanent structure. We are working with the City of Calgary and YYC Airport Authority and other partners to discuss options about the future. We are developing a strategy to give us direction in designing a new building and future expansion. Once we have further details about this structure, and future plans, we will provide you with updates.
This fundraising campaign will be a long-term project with many moving pieces and logistics to map out, but we’re excited to get a head start on raising funds because of the scope of the project. Currently, our last major fundraising project, the restoration of the CF-100 Canuck has begun. When this aircraft returns approximately three years from now we would like to have this new structure complete so that the Canuck can return under shelter from the elements.
We also have other project specific priorities that we need your assistance with, including a more accessible visitor entry to the main hangar, children’s play area, landscaping, and more. Our operational success relies on your support.
If you have any questions or would like to sponsor the museum in a long term partnership please contact our Executive Director, Brian Desjardins: firstname.lastname@example.org

Honour Wall Plaques: Create a Lasting Impression
A number of weeks ago, we had the pleasure of meeting a museum supporter. She lost her husband a short time ago, and wanted to honour his memory by purchasing a brick in his name. He was a supporter of the Museum, a birder and a fly fisherman and wanted to volunteer at the Museum when he retired. The donor was excited to hear of our new vision and brand and wanted to make sure her husband was recognized as a supporter.
We are pleased to announce that as a result of that meeting, The Hangar Flight Museum is launching a new initiative: The Honour Wall. This initiative allows you to show your support of the Museum while honouring a friend, family member or even yourself! Each acrylic plaque can contain up to four lines of text consisting of 25 characters and one image or crest. The completed plaques will be installed on the mezzanine.
Members, volunteers and supporters can purchase a plaque for $250.00. A portion of the price will go toward the manufacture and installation of the plaque with the remaining funds going toward supporting Museum operations. The price of the plaque, less the manufacture cost, is eligible for a tax receipt. You can purchase one or multiple plaques. Corporate plaques are available.
If you would like to take part in this initiative, please contact the Museum. We will ask you to fill out this form so that we have all of the information we need. Please do not use the Canada Helps link to process payment.
