Southport Aerospace Centre

Herman Prior Activity Centre

In December, the Herman Prior Activity Centre revealed their upper windows project that many local businesses contributed to, including Southport. The project featured photos that had historical significance to the community as a reminder of the great things in our past, but also to remember the difficult things in our past.

The photo featuring Southport showcased the RCAF Air Station, 1961, where thousands of locals craned their necks to catch a glimpse of the RCAF Golden Hawks aerobatic flying team at the Southport Wings Parade. Established as part of the Commonwealth Air Training Plan in 1940, Southport operated as part of the Department of National Defence until it was privatized as Southport Aerospace in 1992.

Today, Southport continues to provide state-of-the-art facilities to support the RCAF military flight training program.
