Our Cornell II was built in 1944 by Fleet Aircraft in Fort Erie, Ontario. Produced at a time during the war when pilot training was being reduced, the aircraft saw limited active service with the RCAF. In 1946 the aircraft was provided to the Brandon Flying Club for civilian flight training. Since then the aircraft has been owned and operated by a mixture of flying clubs and private owners across Canada. ECAF took possess of the aircraft a few years ago as a hangar mate to our DeHavilland Tiger Moth.
