The Project:

Hawker Typhoon JP843 is being built at our facility in British Columbia with the goal of once again returning a Hawker Typhoon to the skies. The project is being constructed using surviving parts, factory drawings, and highly accurate reverse engineering practices to bring the aircraft back to its former glory. It is our goal to see JP843 fly with the mighty Napier Sabre engine, and we are investing heavily in our work to make this happen.

The restoration/rebuild of JP843 is the passion of all members involved, and our team of eleven highly experienced aerospace and design professionals are volunteering their time and expertise to see this through to flight. If you would like to help the project by making a donation, please select “donate” from the shop tab above, and you will be re-directed to a secure site.

Our sincerest appreciation to all of those who have made contributions in all forms to support this historic project.

Bruce R.N. Slater

Mechanical Designer

Bruce has 40 years Product Design & Development work history; primarily in the Marine and Tension Fabric Structure industries. Bruce received formal drafting training ‘on the board’, changing to computer drafting in the early 90s. The result is 20 years of 3D computer modeling experience with extensive materials and manufacturing process knowledge.

Martin Oldfield

Retired Aeronautical Engineer

Martin has spent nearly 50 years in the Aerospace Industry starting as an Engineering Apprentice at Armstrong Whitworth in Coventry, England. He immigrated to Canada in 1966 and worked on a variety of projects in many disciplines including manufacturing, engineering mock-ups, production support, value and design engineering.
Projects included Douglas DC 10 Wing in Malton, Ontario; Saunders Aircraft ST-27 Regional Aircraft in Gimli, Manitoba; Canadair Challenger and Bombardier Regional Jet, Montreal, Quebec; Lavi Multirole Fighter, Israeli Aircraft Industries, Tel Aviv; IPTN N250 Regional Commuter Turboprop, Bandung, Indonesia; Boeing 747, 767, 777, 787 and SFAR88 Fuel Systems Safety Analysis, Everett, Washington. Was also briefly involved in the Comox Spitfire Project providing reverse engineering support until it was taken over by Vintage Wings and eventually moved to Ottawa.

Graeme Sutherland

Project Historian Mechanical Engineer

Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering, Canterbury University, Christchurch NZ. Graeme has worked for 33 years as a mechanical engineer, with experience in forestry transport, paper mill systems, and marine inspection. Throughout his career, Graeme has focussed his efforts on energy saving projects where he drafts his designs and alterations to existing systems using CAD.
While his aviation interests began in high school, they have been rekindled through the return to flight of Mosquito KA114, and the study of the marvellous Napier Sabre H24.

Jonathan Cook

Jonathan has been an active member within the DND for 8 years with 3 of those being in the Airforce. While the military has assisted in refining Jonathan’s technical skills, he has long possessed a wide scope of abilities ranging from textiles to refinishing and composites. His family history in aviation combined with a keen interest in fabricating led to the birth of his company, Avro Fabrication, where Jonathan’s skills are constantly being challenged.

Cam Wallace

Cam is the son of 193 Sqn Typhoon pilot Emerson Wallace. Growing up listening to stories of his father’s Typhoon operations, and around his post war career as a pilot, Cam developed a strong interest in historic aviation with direct links to the dangerous operations flown by Typhoon pilots. Cam started his career in aviation as a teenager with B.C. Forest Products, and as a licensed AME M1/M2 he has experience on 20+ fixed and rotary wing types. The Wallace family truly has aviation in their blood with his mother, father, sister and brother all being pilots.
