Edenvale Classic Aircraft Foundation (ECAF)

Edenvale Classic Aircraft Foundation - Fleet Model 80 Canuck

The Edenvale Classic Aircraft Foundation is a flying museum dedicated to the preservation of Canadian Aviation History.  Located at Edenvale Aerodrome which was originally known as No. 1 Relief Field, Edenvale for nearby Camp Borden when it was opened on August 8, 1941.  The field offered inexperienced pilots a chance to learn valuable lessons in gunnery as the final part of their training syllabus on the North American Harvard.

Today the museum operates four aircraft; a 1946 Fleet Model 80 Canuck, a 1943 de Havilland DH.82A Tiger Moth, a 1943 Fairchild PT-26A Cornell and a 1946 Taylorcraft Auster.  The Tiger Moth and the Cornell are available for passenger tours of the local area.

Every August the Foundation hosts the Gathering of the Classics, Canada's largest fly-in of classic aircraft.

Finally, located next door in Hangar M but not directly associated with ECAF is the Edenvale Aviation Heritage Foundation (EAHF), home to the only full scale replica of the Avro Arrow.
