You are invited to the original TCA headquarters to view its first airplane (a Lockheed Electra 10A), board the historic Vickers Viscount, and experience a trip back in time at the Western Canada Aviation Museum. Throughout the month of March, the museum is hosting “Now Boarding” guided tours every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at 2 p.m.
In 1938, Winnipeg’s position at the centre of Canada made it the perfect location for the newly formed Trans-Canada Air Line’s head office. Winnipeg was quickly transformed into one of the nation’s busiest air centers. The historic building, where more than 1,200 people – including maintenance, customer service, clerical, and management staff – once worked to keep the TCA fleet flying, is today home to the Western Canada Aviation Museum.
Tours are Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at 2:00 p.m. throughout March.
Guided tours are free with regular admission; always free for members.
