Welcome to Wings of the North!
At WOTN, we believe in four core values that guide our efforts. They are:
• Love of Education
• Love of Industry
• Love of People
• Love of Flying
our Collection - Love of education
Our extensive collection features flying and static aircraft in addition to multiple displays, vehicles, a gallery and a gift shop. We will be opening in our new temporary home next door to our restoration hangar in September.
Wings Restorations - love of industry
We are excited about the many projects going on in our restoration hangar which include planes and other historical artifacts. While Covid has complicated the process, we continue to make headway on the BT-15 and hope to start in earnest on the AT-11 soon after.
