Tiger Moth C-FDGC is all ready to fly the minute the temperatures become comfortable and the grass strip is dry enough.For sure by early May 2009 -maybe earlier.
Come on down to Dunnville and visit!

#6 RCAF Dunnville Museum

Tiger Moth C-FDGC is located at the former RCAF Station Dunnvile Ontario -a few miles south of the town of Dunnville -located where the Grand River flows into Lake Erie south of Hamilton Ontario and west of Fort Erie and Niagara Falls.

The airfield (CDU9) is quite active with both a flying school, a skydiving facility, and the #6 RCAF Dunnville flying museum which features one Harvard, one Yale, one Tiger Moth and two Nieuport 17s!

Besides a 3500 foot long hard surfaced runway the airport also offers, parallel to runway 05-23 a 2400 foot long grass runway which is at least 100 feet wide and is the best grass runway anywhere in Ontario! Unicom frequency is 123.2.

Drop in and see our museum and join us in our commemoration of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan!(BCATP)

This was one of my favourite airplanes to fly in my 6500 hours of flying.Airlines,civil,RCAF,corporate ,Private.
The start,I with two friends purchased a Tiger Moth in 1949 for $500.00 to learn to fly basic intruments and aerobatics with former RCAF pilot instructor. CF-CIM
Needle, ball, airspeed, unusual positions, peek under the hood dosn,t count.My future wife and I spent many great hours flying out of YVR airport, Nordo ,wheels ,skis and sessions of toiet paper cutting and flower bombing at the old Sumas airport Fraser Valley B.C.
A great start for an aviation career.what I wouldn't give to climb into the cockpit again.

The DH82C Tiger Moth pictured is C-FDGC, manufacturers serial number 1020. It flies actively out of Dunnville Ontario where it forms part of the RCAF Dunnville Museum. RCAF Dunnville was the home of #6 Service Flying Training School (#6 SFTS), a part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP).

The RCAF operated 1384 DH82C Tiger Moths during WW2. Now only 55 are still on the Canadian registry.

Also to be found in Dunnville are 2 Harvards (T6s) on pedestals , an airworthy Yale, and an excellent museum display as well as a very active skydiving facility.

Thanks for showing the world our beloved airplane!
