The Norseman proved itself to be a rugged, reliable workhorse and an ideal bush plane. During the Second World War, the Royal Canadian Air Force operated them for radio and navigational training.

Boeing Stearman

Boeing Stearman — Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum

The importance of the Stearman in the United States cannot be overemphasized - 50% of all U.S. military pilots who fought in WWII received their initial flight training in this sturdy aircraft. In Canada, this Royal Canadian Air Force trainer did not last long because the open cockpit was found unsuitable for winter training.

Fouga Magister

The Fouga is one of the best handling jet trainers ever built. It is and will continue to be treasured for its straightforward flight characteristics and twin engine safety.

North American Harvard

During World War II, and for some years afterwards, the distinctive snarl of the Harvard was a familiar sound in Canadian skies. The Harvard helped pilots make to the transition from low powered primary trainers, like the Finch or Tiger Moth, to high performance front line fighters such as the Spitfire.

de Havilland Canada Chipmunk

The Chipmunk was designed as a primary trainer to replace the legendary Tiger Moth. They served in the Canadian military from 1948 until 1971 – their long service due in part to it being fully aerobatic with flying characteristics similar to the Spitfire, which made it a delight to fly.

Fairchild Cornell
