|Description||The Canadian Air & Space Museum is pleased to confirm discussions with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) regarding the potential opening of a revitalized Museum in an outstanding new location which will allow for vastly improved access for residents and visitors to the Greater Toronto Area.
The Greater Toronto Airport Authority, along with several airport based private businesses including Flight Solutions and Services, Partner Jet, UYJ Air & MxAerospace are together providing interim storage of the Museum’s important artifacts and archival material while potential development opportunities within the Greater Toronto Airport Authority’s site are explored.
No binding commitments have been made at this time. However the Museum Trustees and the GTAA are evaluating opportunities to preserve and present Toronto’s aviation past which includes watershed achievements at both the Malton and Downsview airports. All the parties share a belief that Toronto’s many aviation and space contributions to Canada’s rich history should be presented in innovative and exciting ways for the enjoyment and educational benefit of future generations.
