  • Great place to spend some time and learn about bushplanes and forest fire fighting.
  • A must stop while touring the Soo for exhibits and attractions. Fun for all ages, especially the little one's.
  • A lot of history, fun technology. Several planes can be toured inside. Fun attractions for kids and adults. Amazing attraction in Sault Ste. Marie! Often a festival or event being held here as well.
  • I attended an event here and was very impressed. It is definitely not a place I would have thought to go to but it was really worth the time here.
  • Great aircraft plus a few surprises. Something for everyone.
