MEET THE ACER COLD WAR MUSEUM CREW
WHO WE ARE
The ACER COLD WAR MUSEUM (ACM) is a non-profit corporation founded to promote, collect, document, and operate various types of aircraft and vehicles originating in both current and former Communist Bloc nations.
The ACM mission is to combine the creation and operation of museum aircraft, vehicles, historical artifacts, records, and memorabilia, while simultaneously keeping representative historic aircraft in the air whenever and wherever major aviation events are held across North America.
The Museum offers membership to everyone interested in preserving these Cold War articles for a noble jet age heritage. Governance is provided by a Board of Directors and officers.

Having grown up around aircraft, and being third generation aviation, he enrolled in the Air Cadet program at 12yrs old and learned to fly at 18. Working in a variety of aviation-based roles over the past 15+ years, including Loadmaster on the legendary B727, "Iceman" at the YOW CDF, and the most recent 5 years as an Operations Control Centre Duty Manager with First Air, Mike has had the opportunity to experience the country from coast to coast to coast in a wide variety of cool aircraft. For the past 8 years Mike has been a volunteer instructor with the 742 National Capital Air Cadet Squadron General Ground School program, and in 2013 was recognized by the House of Commons for his commitment to volunteering. He has flown over 30 types of aircraft, holds a CSPA Solo Certificate, and enjoys snowboarding, white water rafting, freeboarding, Jeopardy, and all-you-can-eat buffets.
