Now Boarding! The Early Days of Passenger Travel at the Western Canada Aviation Museum You are invited to the original TCA headquarters to view its first airplane (a Lockheed Electra 10A), board the historic Vickers Viscount, and experience a trip back in time at the Western Canada Aviation Museum. Throughout the month of March, the museum is hosting “Now Boarding” guided tours every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at 2 p.m. In 1938, Winnipeg’s position at the centre of Canada made it the perfect location for the newly formed Trans-Canada Air Line’s head office. Winnipeg was quickly transformed into one of the nation’s busiest air centers. The historic building, where more than 1,200 people – including maintenance, customer service, clerical, and management staff – once worked to keep the TCA fleet flying, is today home to the Western Canada Aviation Museum. Tours are Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at 2:00 p.m. throughout March. Guided tours are free with regular admission; always free for members.
