Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association – The CHAA Story

The CHAA Story is an excellent compilation of the story of the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association (CHAA) that is now available, thanks to the dedication of author, Linda Brimson. Linda has produced a well- illustrated, thoroughly readable book that covers the remarkable history of the Tillsonburg, Ontario-based organization since its inception in 1985.

The 172-page, full-sized volume is priced at $35.00 CDN and will raise revenues for the engines that power the CHAA Harvard fleet. To order please contact Linda at or call her at 519 – 659 – 0628 or Gord McNulty at , 905 – 525 – 9927. Full credit is due to Linda, who engaged in “countless emails” and research with numerous “memory keepers” to complete the book. On behalf of the CAHS, I extend our appreciation for her efforts in producing this tribute. Linda dedicated the book to the founding members of the CHAA, and their spouses. As she wrote, “We remember them all fondly and stand on their shoulders”

About the CHAA:

In 1985, with a visionary idea, three Harvard pilots from Woodstock Flying Club, launched the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association. Their dedication, with the efforts of fellow aviation enthusiasts worldwide, have enabled CHAA to “Keep the Harvards Flying”. A hard-working core of Southwestern Ontario volunteer members continue hands-on restoration and maintenance, public demonstrations. Their goal: keep alive the memory of veterans and aircraft of the WWII British Commonwealth Air Training Plan.
