the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association

242 Smokin'!....photo by Ray Whittemore

     This grass roots group was founded in 1985 at a small airfield in Woodstock, Ontario, by a handful of Harvard lovers. Today their membership is approaching 1000 enthusiasts, worldwide. They are now housed in their own heated hangar and restoration facilities at Tillsonburg Airport, in the heart of Southwestern Ontario.  The club's collection  consists of several Harvards, a Yale, a Tiger Moth and even a Link Trainer.

     Many other privately owned Harvards are associated with the club and join in the organization's activities.

     Regular monthly meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at the CHAA operations building adjoining their hangar. There is usually an interesting guest speaker. Newcomers are always warmly welcomed.

     During the flying season CHAA aircraft are flown to a wealth of airshows and ceremonial appearances across North America. Several Fly Days are held each year at the base. Members are encouraged to participate in all facets of the organization...from airshow support, groundcrew, restoration, research and social events, to the thrill of a backseat ride in one of our historic aircraft. 

     CHAA is a registered charitable organization so any donations are tax deductible.

    Junior memberships are available to young people under the age of 16. They are called the "Harvard Hawks".

     Each spring, CHAA offers a Harvard Ground School for interested members or prospective pilots.

     If you are already a qualified pilot CHAA offers the opportunity to check out in our aircraft and to learn formation flying based on RCAF standards. These qualifications are recognized by EAA WARBIRDS OF AMERICA, NATA & F.A.S.T.
