Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association Flown by the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association (CHAA) Formation Team, and powered by a 600 hp Pratt & Whitney Wasp engine, the North American Harvard served as the advanced trainer of the RCAF under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan during World War Two. Pilot trainees would transition from the wood and fabric Tiger Moth to the modern Harvard, then move up to the advanced ghters of the day such as the Spitre and Mustang. Formation Team Known for it’s ‘growl’, a unique sound caused by the propeller tips going supersonic, Harvards were a common bird seen and heard in the skies of Canada during this period. The CHAA team, based in Tillsonburg, Ontario, will put these aircraft through a formation ying program, demonstrating the early 1940s techniques and skills required by students honing their skills and hoping to earn their wings in the RCAF.
