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.
Members are invited to the Centre for NOAHC’s monthly ‘Casual Thursdays’ where topics of aviation interest
are shared and lots of coffee and conversation (also known as ‘hangar flying’)are enjoyed.
Thursday, February 26, at 7:00 p.m., we will have an hour of programming
sharing some interviews that we have done with local aviators.
Gord Leamy, a retired local water bomber pilot with the Ministry of Natural Resources will be featured,
along with a bush plane pilot, who is yet to be determined.
Please come out to see these interesting interviews and join in the conversation afterwards.
Bring along any friends that you think might like to see these as well. Hope to see you then.
It’s that time again!! Time to renew your membership with the Northwestern Ontario Aviation Heritage Centre for 2015. You can mail it in or bring it along to the Centre any Sunday. A membership form is on our website and can also be found in our newsletter as well as at the Centre.
