WELCOME

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.

Help us “Hangar the Hudson”

The Hudson Bomber is the one of our most prized possessions, and over the years, it has become a symbol of the North Atlantic Aviation Museum. More importantly, the Hudson is a symbol of Gander’s rich aviation and military history, and serves as a testament to all those who served here, and abroad, in the Second World War, especially those who served in the Atlantic Ferry Command.

Our Hudson is one of only a handful left in the world, and currently the only one on external display. For decades, it could be seen mounted in front of Gander International Airport, and was moved to its current location outside the museum in the mid-90s. Although this has allowed the opportunity for the residents of Gander and visitors to see this piece of history at any time, the elements have been taking their toll, and will one day result in a legacy lost.

This is why we need to Hangar the Hudson; to protect and preserve this irreplaceable piece of global and local heritage. This hangar will also serve as a lasting memorial to the Ferry Command.

This project will require a lot of work, and will cost upwards of $5,000,000. Although we will be seeking government support, we will first need to raise a significant portion of these funds.
