Baddeck 1

Lt Col D J Goodspeed The Armed Forces of Canada 1867-1967 Queens Printer Ottawa 1967
The Baddeck 1, the first plane to be built in Canada, is readied for testing at the Petawawa army base in 1909. It was determined at that time that flying was too expensive for the Canadian military and it wasn't till 1914 that a Canadian Aviation Corps was created using a used Burgess Dunn seaplane.
