What You'll Get
History is like Frankenstein's monster; all it takes to make it come alive is the right education, a large body of artifacts exhumed from the earth, and an electrical storm. Learn from the past with today's Groupon to Vintage Wings of Canada in Gatineau.
Choose between two museum membership options:
- For $80, you get a one-year family (up to four people) membership (a $175 value).
- For $60, you get a one-year individual membership (a $125 value).
Honoring Canada's aviation heritage, Vintage Wings of Canada provides a revivifying retirement for the winged workhorses of yesteryear, exemplified by its collection of vintage aircraft. Stage solo expeditions with an individual membership, or take up to four familial fledglings under wise wings with a family membership. Members roam Vintage Wings’ history-heaped hangar at Executive Airport Gatineau-Ottawa, admiring the propeller-powered opulence and cockpit phonographs of art deco aeronautic artifacts from pioneering manufacturers, including de Havilland, Curtiss, and Beech. Inquisitive visitors can observe navigational nuts and bolts as Vintage Wings’ mechanics restore and renovate antique aviators, or retire to the hangar’s library to cram craniums with the exploits of famous Canadian fliers.
When not stuffing skulls with barnstorming history, members may also take advantage of Vintage Wings’ membership perks. Skip rope lines with VIP access to members-only air shows and galas, conquer the skies with rides in vintage aircraft for an additional fee, and refight the Red Baron in the cockpit of Vintage Wings’ time-travelling biplane.
