Did you know that North Atlantic Aviation Museum is a registered Canadian Charitable Organization?

Your donations will go toward the proposed Ferry Command Memorial Hall. Consider donating today!



The North Atlantic Aviation Museum is conveniently located on the Trans Canada Highway, in the town of Gander, NL. The property is located immediately adjacent (and connected by walking trail) to the Tourist Information Center.

North Atlantic Aviation Museum opened its doors in 1996, and is dedicated to preserving and presenting stories and artifacts highlighting Gander’s role in the development of Trans Atlantic Aviation.

In the spring of 2012, the museum completed extensive interior renovations, creating a modern and professional exhibit, with engaging multimedia displays and a brand new flight simulator.

The exhibit, covering the time period from 1935 to 2001, provides a rich narrative of Gander’s short but fascinating history.

Learn about Gander’s role as an important strategic base during WWII, how the town earned the nickname “Crossroads of the World”, why Gander was known throughout the Eastern Bloc, and finally hear the story of Gander’s unexpected role, in the days following 9/11.

Beyond Words Tours is a fundraising project of the North Atlantic Aviation Museum.  100% of the net proceeds support the Ferry Command Memorial Hall fundraising effort.

Remembering Phyllis Penney Gaul


It is with profound sadness that we bid farewell to a longtime friend, a pioneer of her time and an inspiration to the NAAM community, Phyllis Penney Gaul. Though our hearts are heavy, we wish to share with you the life of a woman of courage, strength, dreams and accomplishments, who paved the way not only for female aviators but all aviators alike.

Please click HERE to learn of Phyllis’ life as highlighted in such a beautiful way by her children.

Our condolences are with the family as we say one last “cleared for takeoff” to a mother, wife, grandmother, friend and boundary-breaking pilot. Phyllis will remain forever in our hearts and in our museum as a symbol of all we celebrate here at NAAM.

Clear skies, dear friend.
