Dwayne Mitchell - Vice President

The chance to serve and combine my love of business and military jet aircraft is truly an amazing opportunity! It started in Gander, NFLD while my dad served as an Airport Fire Fighter and watching the first CF-18  Hornet and CF-101 Voodoo touch down for the first time at the age of 10. My heart literally stopped in my chest. I joined the Air Cadets and obtained my glider pilots license. The dream of being able to fly the CF-18 may not have happened,YET! but the ability to help protect these magnificent war birds has only just begun. Currently working on my Private Pilot License and having a blast doing so in the preparation of restoring and flying these timeless treasures. JOIN US!

Matt Keast - Director of Facilites

The Jet Aircraft Museum has offered me a great opportunity to combine my design and project management skills with my love of Aviation. I’m excited to be a part of taking this great organization to new heights! I had my first flight in an airplane when I was 12 and joined the Air Cadet’s a few years later. My passion for RCAF jet aircraft was fused into my mind when I first attended the London International Airshow in the early 1980’s and watched the CF-101 Voodoo take to the air; a moment I will never forget.

Kevin Moore - Director of Fundraising

I was introduced to aviation at a very young age through my father.  He was a Lancaster and Halifax Flight Engineer/Pilot in the RAF and, when he emigrated to Canada from the UK in 1960, within a few months he had joined the RCAF as a reserve officer with the Air Cadet program.  He was a founding father of the Air Cadet Gliding Program in the 1960s and I had my first experience in a glider when I was 3.  From that point in time, I was hooked on flying and aviation.  I joined the Air Cadets, earned by glider pilot license and went to to instruct and became a standards pilot with the Air Force as a reserve officer and the Air Cadet Gliding Program.  I am also an aviation photo-journalist and was asked to do some photography for JAM while they were readying the six T-33's at CFD Mountain View in Prince Edward County, 2.5 hours east of Toronto.  I was hooked and joined the museum later that year.  You can contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Mike Kestle - Chair of Marketing & Restoration

Growing up in London during the 80’s, it wasn’t hard to love Jets. When the airshow came to town I would go the Friday before just to go watch the dozens of aircraft arrive (mainly to see my favorite jet, the F4 Phantom II). It was an awesome time--- the good old days.

The Jet Aircraft Museum has given me the chance to be involved and help bring some of that excitement back to the London area. With a background in Retail Design, Branding and Marketing, I look forward to helping create displays for future artifacts that will help tell the story of the Dawn of the Jet Age and Cold War era and promote the many unique things the Jet Aircraft Museum has to offer.

Another passion of mine is restoration, and I am excited to continue working with our team on the Voodoo 006 restoration and acquiring additional aircraft for the museum.

Graham Rawlinson - Director of Flight Operations

Graham has been in aviation for over 35 years when he first become a Private Pilot in the UK. At that time Graham continued his flight training towards becoming a British Commercial Pilot and completed his Multi-engine, and Instrument Rating. But a downturn in the aviation industry set Graham on a different path. However, he keep his flying dream alive by becoming a Jet Aircraft owner back in 2011 when he purchased a BAC Jet Provost T4 an Ex-RAF Military trainer. He then ship it to Canada and start the restoration work which took over 3 years to complete as it was the first Jet Provost in Canada.

With his knowledge of not only operating a military jet aircraft in Canada but also understanding the requirements to acquire, import and restore aircraft made him a great candidate for the Director of Flight Ops. Graham vision is to help other PPLs to fulfill their dreams of becoming a Jet Pilot and is now in charge of developing programs to training both Pilots and Ground Crew at the Jet Aircraft Museum.
