In 1978 a group was brought together by Robert G Grantham, a current Life Member of ACAM, to form the Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum Society. The Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum, as we now know it, was formed immediately after. Now, some 35 years later, this volunteer Museum has grown to be a significant preserver of the rich aviation history of this region. Thanks to the dedicated efforts of so many who volunteer their time and efforts, the Museum continues to develop and to provide Nova Scotia with a volunteer institution of which it can be truly proud.
The year 2012 saw continued improvements in the Museum displays and restorations. Unfortunately December also saw
the passing of long time Curator, and Museum founding member, Reg Clarke. His dedication will long be remembered.
“With spring in the near future, once again it is time to get our hands dirty at the Museum. One big project is the fabrication of 70 plus pylons to hold the new barrier chain that will enclose our display aircraft, aero engines, and other large items.
Argus simulator, and various engines is also taking place. Other projects will include new displays, completing ones already started, organizing the amazing Reg Clarke collection of models, photos, books, and other historical items. Reg, you will be missed, and yes, we will take good care of your collection and display it in the manner that it deserves.
