A presentation was made by Fleet Canada to the members of the Royal Canadian Airforce Association 434 Wing in Welland on February 18th, 2016.
Marika Kozachenko, Business Development Manager for Fleet Canada provided the group with an historical perspective of Fleet’s 85 years in the aerospace industry.
Fleet Canada’s eight decades of history is of interest to many in the community. It was an honor to be requested to speak to the RCAF 434 Wing. There is not a lot you can tell that group about the history of aircraft but they did enjoy the presentation on the business history of Fleet. Since the early days producing trainers as air travel was in its infancy to today when Fleet continues to be relevant in an industry that faces worldwide competition. Many in attendance had personal memories of the early days and fabulous mementos of the early days of the company.
The highlight of the presentation and the focus of many questions was the importance of the history of the company to its niche position in the industry today.
