  • Went for a tour, what a bunch of great aircraft & displays! Lots of knowledgeable and helpful staff. When you realize that it is all volunteers working there, it is even more impressive! A MUST stop destination if you are on Vancouver Island & are a aviation fan. Well done!
  • My husband and I were here this afternoon and I can't say enough great things about it! The volunteers we spoke with were informed and patient with my many questions. The admission price was very reasonable considering the effort put into things. To finish things we got to say hello to Marcus, a handsome quiet soul, in the entrance area. Thanks again everyone!!
  • The staff, who suppose to show us around, does not speak much, speaks only when we ask questions. What kind tour guidance is that? Our kid was very excited to see all the plane, and he was yelling loud, the tour guy said he can not listen to this loud yelling and left us alone. He is 1 year old, what were u like when you were a baby ? We were the only ppl with colour skin there, was this the cause? Was this race related?
  • I love taking my son to the musuem. There seems to always be a volunteer to help with explaining the exhibits. It is clean and I can feel the passion that the volunteers have for the history.
  • Awesome place to bring young kids that love airplanes. Really nice volunteers.
