The former Dunnville Airport was built during World War II to house the No. 6 Service Flying Training School (SFTS) as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan.  The No. 6 SFTS officially opened on November 25, 1940 and closed December 1, 1944.  A total of 2,436 pilots from Canada, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and the United States trained here.  Through memorabilia, photographs, vintage aircraft and equipment of the era, visitors gain a sense of what it was like for young men to train at the No. 6 SFTS before serving in the European Theatre of World War II.  The Museum features extensive displays of artifacts, vintage aircraft of the type used at the No. 6 and other training bases, a large library and a Memorial Garden than honours the men who lost their lives while training at the No. 6 SFTS.
