The Fleet 16B Finch - by Colin E. Bowley

The Fleet 16B Finch - by Colin E. Bowley

Between 1939 and 1941 the primary pilot trainers in the Canadian Air Force were the Fleet Finch and the Tiger Moth.

A total of 606 Fleet Finch aircraft were built for the RCAF and were powered by the 125 hp Kinner five cylinder air-cooled radial engine.

The aircraft which was similar to the Fleet 10 entered service with tandem open cockpits but was soon modified by the addition of a sliding canopy to help cope with the severe Canadian winters.
