  • ANALYSIS: Field on making ordinary aircraft extraordinary

    News | 27 Mar 2015 10:28 | Murdo Morrison

    ​For almost 70 years, Field Aviation has been turning mainly Canadian-built types into special mission platforms – making, as its website boasts, “ordinary aircraft extraordinary”. The modifications house, based next to Toronto’s international airport, began transforming surplus wartime transports in the late 1940s. Its latest projects include partnering with Boeing on its Bombardier Challenger 650-based Maritime Surveillance Aircraft (MSA) and designing and installing a first-of-type cargo door on a new Bombardier CRJ700.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Field-on-making-ordinary-aircraft-extraordinary-410635/

  • ANALYSIS: How Viking Air's Twin Otter gamble paid off

    News | 19 Mar 2015 13:18 | Murdo Morrison

    ​About as far west as you can go from the aerospace corridor around Montreal and Toronto and the Twin Otter’s original manufacturing site, Canada’s other original equipment manufacturer is proving its gamble to bring the type back to life is more than paying off. Viking Air – based on Vancouver Island on the country’s Pacific coast – has notched up more than 110 orders for, and delivered almost 70 of the former de Havilland Canada high-winged, twin engine turbine powered aircraft since launching the Series 400 programme in 2007.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-How-Viking-Airs-Twin-Otter-gamble-paid-off-410008/
