Canadian Historical Aircraft Association

In accordance with the province’s Stay-at-Home order, several measures are in place to ensure your safety at most businesses and attractions.

Retail locations are those deemed essential and are only able to provide curbside pick-up or delivery. Essential service businesses are permitted up to 50% of their official capacity.

Most attractions are closed due to limited capacity options. Please contact any establishment directly for the status of their service and potential change in hours.

As of November 30, 2020 the CH2A will be temporarily closed to visitors, volunteers and members.  

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.  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!

Tour rates: $8/Adult, $6/Senior & Children 6-12, Veterans and Children under 6 free

We ask that the public call (519.966.9742) to reserve visiting times to help reduce the number of visitors to the hangar at one time.
