About Stamp
In 1958 Canadair Limited of Montreal decided to enter the jet training aircraft market with a private venture - the CL-41 Tutor basic jet trainer, the first aircraft of wholly original Canadair design. The design incorporated the views of RCAF pilots and service engineers who had vast experience under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. The merits of the aircraft led to a decision by the government to purchase the CL-41 trainer in quantity for the RCAF. Between 1960-68, 212 Tutors were built by Canadair. Considerably more powerful than any other trainer in its class, the Tutor was well suited for adaptation to military use in ground attack duties. In Canada the CL-41 is still in service for basic training and is flown by the "Snowbirds" acrobatic team. Robert Bradford painted the illustration, and graphic designer Jacques Charette developed the format and typography for the stamp. The stamp depict a Canadair CL-41 Tutor in the finish of aircraft flown by the "Snowbirds".
