Fleet 16B Finch II seen in Captains of the Clouds.

The Fleet Fawn (Fleet Model 7) and the Fleet Finch (Fleet Model 16) are two-seat, tandem training biplanes produced by Fleet Aircraft of Fort Erie, Ontario. Based upon the the Consolidated Model 14 Husky Junior which was never put into production, the new company designed a number of variants mainly based on engine variations of the Kinner B-5. Over several years beginning in 1939, a total of 447 Finches were built, nearly all (431) of them for use as elementary trainers in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP) during the Second World War. With six dozens of Fawns and a handfull of intermediate mark (Model 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 10 / 11 / 14), the grand total is more than 750 airplanes built.

This page lists all works that feature Fleet open cockpit two-seat primary trainers excluding the Fleet Cornell (a license-built Fairchild Cornell, alias PT-19).
