culminated in the Canair 506/509/512.
by a single Kohler 440cc 2AS engine which produced 35HP which drove a 30"
diameter Multi-wing axial fan. The air from this fan was divided with
approximately 1/3 of the air being directed for lift. Constructed of Glass
Reinforced Plastic with integrated buoyancy. The Canair 2 was the
beginnings of the Canair series penned by Ron Fishlock and saw the beginnings of
the now familiar reverse thrust/braking systems as used on all subsequent
designs by Fishlock. It was designed and constructed with funding from the
Newfoundland and Labrador Development Corporation.
