Canadian Bush Plane Centre strives for status as top museum

Sault This Week

The Canadian Bush Plane Heritage Centre in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario preserves and tells the story of Canada’s bushplane and forest fire protection heritage and how it has shaped life in northern and remote parts of Canada. The centre collects, preserves, exhibits and interprets a collection of bushplanes and related material and promotes public understanding of their significance by offering quality presentations, education programs and visitor experiences in a public museum facility. It also serves as a centre of research and information on bushplane and forest fire fighting heritage.

In a recent article in Sault This Week, executive director, Mike Delfre, of the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre, talks about his hopes to see the day the centre can give bushplane flying and technology a proper place to display its history.  He says the centre, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, has embarked on an ambitious plan to bring the centre to national prominence.
