The Harvards. Two beautiful machines in our hangar.

We have been repairing a Harvard 4, C-FMWN, built in 1953,  and now are importing a Harvard Mk II CF-SKL, built in 1941.

C-FSKL has the original military instrument flying hood in rear cockpit. It was rebuilt using RCAF archival data and looks exactly like when it came out of the factory. Its easy to see why it was an award winner at Oshkosh.

The Harvard was used to train nearly all U.S. and British Commonwealth fighter pilots from 1940 to 1955. The Noorduyn Aviation Limited and Canadian Car & Foundry Limited produced 3,350 Harvards during and after the Second World War.
