[Aircraft models] Greater Toronto Area, Canada

Sun Mar 12, 2017 2:10 am

Hi, so I have quite a personal intrest in aircraft models, but I don't like online shopping and is hoping a aviation enthusiast in the GTA (no, not the game) would know a place with a well stocked model planes, preferably Gemini Jets/ Herpa and something along those lines. Thanks!

Aviation World or Threshold Aviation would be a great place to start. Both are basically right next door to each other on Carlingview Drive, just south of Dixon Rd and North of the 401. And as a bonus they sit just a few hundred meters form runway 24L & 24R at YYZ. Also I know you're not comfortable with purchasing online but I would recommend you check out aviationdelight.ca. They are based in the GTA and all prices on the site are in CAD and shipping is a lot cheaper than ordering from a US based company. I have ordered from them multiple times and have received nothing but great customer service and quick deliveries. They do not have a physical store unfortunately, online orders only but they have a wonderful selection.

Thanks so much! I found aviation delight too, shame that they don't do pick-ups at Mississauga as I could checkout YYZ while I am at it. Now just saying, I don't think that Threshold Aviation is a airplane model shop but I see they offer a great simulator, but that'll probably be a waste off time as I am barley figuring out how the heck the autopilot works, still, thanksys!
