Changes at Vintage Wings of Canada

#1 Post by Dave Hadfield » Thu Jan 26, 2017 11:37 am

Hi All,

Just to dispel rumours, things have changed at VWoC, but the aircraft will still fly, and events will still take place. It's only the previous charity-entity which has shut down.

Good explanation here:

Can I do a Chipmonk checkout and if so, how much does that cost?

The Chipmunk in our hangar is a beauty, but owned by someone else. So, I doubt it. But if you send me a PM I can put you in touch with the owner.

BTW -- here is a brand-new acquisition of the Collection:

It was previously owned by the Irving family of New Brunswick. (Yes, THAT Irving family.)

Ok, I need to get permission and line up a lot of things first. Thanks for the reply though. I'll alert you if I can persuade the finance department. (Wife)
