Comox Air Force Museum

The Comox Air Force Museum (CAFM), was founded in 1982 to reflect the role and history of 19 Wing (CFB/RCAF/RAF) Comox, the role and history of the Squadrons stationed there and significant Canadian Military Aviation of Western Canada.

Originally started as a part of the Air Force Indoctrination School, the Museum was accredited as a stand-alone Canadian Forces Museum in 1987 and opened its doors to the public in its current location, 12 September 1987. The museum records the history and heritage of all of Canada’s Air Forces, from the short-lived Royal Flying Corps of Canada (1917-1918) and Canadian Air Force (1918-1924) through the glory years of the Royal Canadian Air Force (1924-1968), unification of the forces in 1968 and on into the present day.
