The Saskatchewan Aviation Museum and Learning Center is set to open up their doors for the first time tomorrow hosting their first ever Aviation Day.
The museum has become a reality after receiving some private donations and donations from local businesses including West Wind Aviation.
Proceeds from tomorrow’s event which gets started at 8 a.m. with a pancake breakfast will go towards covering costs at the museum which is ran by volunteers with the exception of one paid employee.
President of the Saskatchewan Aviation Museum, Darrin Wallace says they’re expecting a good sized crowd tomorrow as flying clubs have hosted events in the past that have seen good attendance numbers.
“The flying clubs put on events out here in the past and they attracted a fairly good crowd.”
Wallace adds there will be different planes for those attending to see including anything from private airplanes to military planes.
Cost of admission is 20 dollars a family, 10 dollars for an adult, 5 dollars a child with children 5 and under free.
Aviation Day gets started at 8 a.m. and runs till 5 p.m. at the new Saskatchewan Aviation Museum and Learning Center at John G. Diefenbaker Airport.
