Canadian military aircraft types are easy to identify. Just look at the first three digits of the tail number. This is 156120. So this is identified as a CT-156. And a CC-130 Hercules for instance would have a tail number such as 130132. Pretty neat looking little thing. Looks fast! My first time seeing ejection seats in a prop driven plane. #ct156harvardii#ywg#shellaerocentre#ct156#harvardii
Royal Canadian Air Force CT-156 Harvard II. Used to train pilots for basic flight training to prepare them for advanced flight training. They will log 95 hours on this aircraft before going to the fighter, multiengine or helicopter programs. This aircraft has an impressive 1km per minute rate of climb can travel at 575km/h and has a range of 834km.
This past Sunday afternoon just before we flew home from Cranbrook, BC to Moose Jaw, SK nonstop. Grounding 325 knots it only took 1 hour 20 mins, 👍🏻. Awesome end to a weekend of night flying in Alberta & beautiful B.C. Amazing views of the Rockies as we flew out.
We grew up dreaming of flying as kids, and we've been blessed to be able to work towards making those reality. I last saw my buddy Jordan almost 12 years ago overseas. Pretty cool to come full circle, our schedules finally worked out to meet up. Both flying through Cranbrook, BC of all places. All the best with your airline career bro!
