HistoryEdit

The company was formed in 2006, but its history can be traced back to Reuben Fleet, who commenced manufacturing operations of Fleet Aircraft on March 23, 1930. A state-of-the-art facility for the day, the plant promptly began turning out complete aircraft for military and civilian training. By 1938, Fleet had enlarged the factory to ten times its original size and the Fleet Finch Trainer had become the primary training aircraft for the Commonwealth Air Training Plan. After the war, Fleet produced a successful light civilian 2-seater, the Fleet Canuck. The making of complete aircraft ceased in the early 1950s and the manufacture of quality structural components became the core business.
