At 10am on Wed, Apr 4, Vintage Wings founder Michael Potter, along with Ottawa Airport President and CEO Paul Benoit, cut the ribbon on Vintage Wings’ new Gear Up retail boutique.
Located in the main concourse, downstairs in Domestic Arrivals, the store is the first of many to be established across the country in the new few years.
“It’s about getting our message out,” said Michael Potter, about Vintage Wings’ mission to Commemorate, Educate and Inspire Canadians, especially young Canadians, about our rich aviation heritage.
Offering quality aviation heritage clothing, including t-shirts, jackets, sweaters, and caps, the store is the result of many hours of hard work by Carolyn Leslie, Business Operations Manager, and Julien Brown, Manager of Retail Operations.
