The Northwestern Ontario Aviation Heritage Centre was conceived as a means of collecting and preserving much of the aviation history of the area extending from the Manitoba border, north to Hudson Bay, east to Fort Albany and south to Wawa and west to the Manitoba border. An area of 526,372 square kilometres (203,089 square miles) or almost 50 percent of the area of Ontario. Although NOAHC is located in Thunder Bay, it is a regional centre.
Now that Fall is here, please come out any Sunday afternoon,

and join us for coffee and conversation.

We will host a presentation on Superior Airways, a local company, founded by Orville Wieben, that made a major contribution to the development of commercial aviation in the region. Members of the Wieben family and former employees of Superior Airways will be present to talk and reminisce about a company that had a colourful forty year history during which it helped link the Lakehead with many communities in the north-west.
