It's 13:26The Museum is Closed Now

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Jet Aircraft Museum, without Volunteers we could not find, save, restore and fly these incredibly important pieces of Canadian History.

Every aspect of the museum is run with the leadership and assistance of volunteers.

Want to get involved? Simply contact us or stop by.

Currently, JAM is looking for new members to participate in the following areas:

  • Tour Guides: The museum gets quite busy on the weekends, and we are looking for new members to be the “Face of JAM”. Give guided tours and answer questions about the history of jet aviation! No previous knowledge is required!
  • Marketing: JAM is in need of new members who have experience in marketing. We are looking to expand our publicity, and improve the museum marketing platforms.
  • Simulation: Are you interested in flight simulation? JAM has a set of 9 flight simulators and we are looking for new members to help us run, maintain, and improve our flight simulators. 
  • Education Program: JAM’s new Education Program allows for Grade 6 classes to visit the museum to learn about the theory of flight, as per The Ontario Curriculum. We need new members to assist us with running this program when we have classes visiting. No prior experience with education is required. 

All areas that can be worked in include:

  • Membership
  • Tours
  • Archives
  • Restoration
  • Fundraising

  • Maintenance
  • Aircraft Documents and Library
