Eyes on the Skies
September 1 - October 7
From July 15th – October 7th, the Alberta Aviation Museum is thrilled to host Eyes on the Skies: Managing Air Traffic in Canada, a special exhibition developed by the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, one of three museums under Ingenium – Canada’s Museums of Science and Innovation, in collaboration with NAV CANADA.
Eyes on the Skies examines the rapid evolution of air traffic management, exploring the systems, people, and technologies that keep skies safe. Through a variety of highly interactive experiences that test visitors’ skills, and a mix of historical and contemporary content, this exhibition introduces visitors to Canada’s air navigation system and how air traffic is managed safely and efficiently – a critical role of the aviation industry.
Eyes on the Skies demystifies complex ideas – from the impacts of gender to how radar works. It highlights people central to managing air traffic in Canada and explores how navigation systems, procedures and technologies have evolved over the decades. Drawing links to their own experiences as passengers, visitors learn through play, strong visual and audiovisual experiences.
