One of Canada's most distinctive contributions to World War II was the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP). The BCATP provided training facilities for all parts of the Commonwealth. Building and operating a nationwide flight training school was a complex task. In most cases, sights had to be chosen, land purchased and runways, hangars, barracks and other support buildings needed to be constructed. During the frenzied building activities at the start of the BCATP, close to 120 airfields were constructed across the country. The operation expanded steadily ultimately employing more than 104,000 men and women including almost 13,000 civilians.

To recognize the importance of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, we are inviting owners of BCATP type aircraft to fly-in to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum on Augsut 12th. Along with our Museum's large collection of BCATP aircraft, we are anticipating one of the largest gatherings of "Yellow Birds" since World War II. Weather permitting, expect to see Finches, Tiger Moths, Harvards, etc.

Museum BCATP aircraft including the Tiger Moth, Stearman, Cornell and Harvard will be available for member flights that day.
