This Father’s Day weekend, bring Dad and the whole family to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum for a day of fun and flying. Many of the Museum’s vintage aircraft will be flown throughout both days but the best part is – YOU can be part of the action!

We are offering discounted rides in many of the aircraft including biplanes like the Tiger Moth and Stearman, or trainers such as the Cornell, Chipmunk and Harvard. Like a little more elbow room, try a ride in a World War II transport like the Beech 18 or Dakota. If you need a bomber experience – enjoy a trip aboard our B-25 Mitchell “Hot Gen”.

Discounted aircraft rides are very popular so arrive early as they are available on a first come, first serve basis. Father’s Day weekend is the only opportunity each year that current and new members can fly in our famed aircraft at deeply discounted prices. These range from $60.00 to $360.00 depending on the aircraft selected and membership status. Helicopter rides will also be available for purchase.

Debuting on Father’s Day weekend, our famous Lancaster will look a little different painted in her summer colours as the “Ruhr Express” – the very first Canadian built Lancaster. Learn the history of this famous Lancaster. The Lancaster is scheduled to fly daily at FLYFEST.

Do you feel the need for speed? If so, Waterloo Warbirds will also be in attendance with their beautiful T-33 “Mako Shark”, two seat de Havilland Vampire and Aero L-29 Delfin? You can book flights with them while they are at FLYFEST by contacting them directly at
