Airplane of the Month – CT-114 Tutor
Have you ever wondered what kind of plane is used at air shows? One of them is the CT-114 Tutor, a source of national pride for all Canadians and plane lovers. The Royal Canadian Air Force took their first delivery of these planes 51 years ago in 1963. They are now mainly used by Canada’s acrobatic team, the Snowbirds, as their aircraft of choice for air demonstrations, but half a decade ago, they were used as a basic jet trainer.
A CT-114 Tutor is 9.75 metres long with an 11.12 wingspan. When it’s empty, it weighs 2,575 kg.
Did you know that the Tutor can reach 18,000 feet in less than 6 minutes?
Did you know that the airport has its own firefighters and trucks? Check out some photos here.
