One project of special interest to NAMS (National Aviation Museum Society) is the current restoration of a very rare WW II Beaufighter, a type flown by recently deceased Ottawa resident Rayne “Joe” Schultz, DFC and Bar. He shot down three German aircraft on a single night as part of his distinguished career in which he was credited with eight enemy aircraft destroyed.

NAMS is making significant contributions to that restoration project along with contributions to the restoration of other aircraft and the aviation related education of Canadian Youth.

With the support and efforts of the National Aviation Museum Society, the current main display building was opened in 1988.

Continuing efforts by the Society were instrumental in completion of the adjacent Storage Wing in April 2005, marking the first time that the entire collection of over 130 aircraft was accommodated indoors.

Members of NAMS not only help in raising funds, but get in there and get their hands dirty as well!
