De Havilland Canada Grows Manufacturing Capacity with Acquisition of Field Aviation Company Inc’s Calgary based Aircraft Parts Manufacturing Operations

De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Limited (“De Havilland Canada”) announced that it has purchased the assets and ongoing business of Field Aviation Company Inc’s Calgary, Alberta based aircraft parts manufacturing operations, continuing to grow our Western Canadian manufacturing footprint.

This is the second acquisition made by De Havilland Canada in the past several months, having recently acquired Mid-Canada Mod Centre and Avionics Design Services Inc. in Ontario in late 2023. These acquisitions will allow De Havilland Canada to grow our manufacturing, engineering and avionics design capacity to meet growing global customer demand.

“At De Havilland Canada, we are focused on rugged, reliable, Canadian-made products, so we are very excited to add the expertise of Field’s Calgary manufacturing operations to our De Havilland Canada team,” said Brian Chafe, CEO, De Havilland Canada. “Field’s Calgary operations will be integrated into our own manufacturing operations and will play a vital role in our desire to improve our in-house supply chain and ensure our customers have the parts they need, when they need them.”

Field Aviation Company Inc’s Calgary, Alberta based aircraft parts manufacturing operations currently manufactures parts for De Havilland Canada aircraft as well as parts for other aerospace OEMs.
