Fleet Finch Aircraft - Vintage Aircraft

Fleet Finch - Peter Handley/Vintage Aircraft of Canada

Stanley’s Annual Fly-in is the longest standing and largest of its kind in Canada. Several aircraft from across Canada and the eastern United States enjoy our fly-in. All registered aircraft get judged for several categories, such as best homebuilt, best antique, best production model, etc. On Saturday evening, we hold an auction which is a great fundraiser for Stanley Sport Aviation Association. All items are kindly donated by our membership, friends, guests and sponsors.

This year, to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP), Vintage Wings of Canada has scheduled a cross-country flight this summer using four of their yellow aircraft (Harvard, Corneill, Tigermoth, Finch) and others that may join them on the trip. Their last Eastern stop will be in Stanley. This is a chance of a lifetime to see this series of vintage aircraft.
