Aeronca Champion

The Aeronca Aircraft Corporation was established in November 1928 in Middletown, Ohio. It was the first company to build a truly light aircraft.

 The 7AC Champ was designed in tandem with the 11AC Chief.  It first flew in 1944, and went into full production the following year, taking advantage of a growing post-war market.

Aeronca Champ, CF-IHU, was donated to the Bushplane Centre by Dan Campbell of St. Joseph Island.
