I've kept my eyes open for Canuck info for years. All I came up with was 1 3-view and a couple rubber powered plans. I've always thought the Canuck had lots going for it.
-It's Canadian
-High wing
-Semi Symmetical Airfoil
-Most important it's NOT ABC... ANOTHER BLOODY CUB!

I was at a Giant Scale fly in held at the KRCM field down in Kingston,Ont. a few years back and a gentleman had one of these on display at the time.He was still in the process of finishing it so he didn't fly it but brought it out for display purposes anyways.It was all assembled and covered but he hadn't finished painting it as of that time.It was the first time I had ever heard of this unique Canadian built plane and it really caught my attention that day.I spent some time talking to this gentleman who had built this plane and he gave me a short history lesson on the Fleet 80 that day .He had done a terrific job on building this plane.Top notch workmanship all around.Too bad I can't remember his name but maybe one of the Giant Scale guy's who frequents the Kingston Giant Scale events yearly might recognize who this gentleman might be and maybe you can get in contact with him about the Fleet 80.This would have been around 2-3 years ago that I seen this plane at a Giant Scale rally which is held in August every year at the KRCM field.

Ken Gilmour still has it. He didn't join the club this year as he's building a full size ultralite. I'll see if I can get him to send a reply.
Tried for my kamikazi pilots licence. Flunked the test.

Fleet built 198, Leavens built 25, and the St, Catherines Flying Club assembled one from parts. Total built 225 including the prototype.

I would like to build a scale model and would appreciate any help in the way of 3 view drawings or plans ..

Good link:

There are a couple zipped files that can be opened and copied or saved in Adobe. There are drawings for the fuse, wing, empenage and many others. A lot of detail photos in the other zipped file.

Thanks go to "Daniel Lessard" for sharing this great info on the web. Where do people find the time to complete such projects and then publish it out of generosity?
