This is the list of 2,197 naval aviators who served in the Canadian Navy, or who were Canadians serving as naval aviators in other navies. It is derived from the two versions of the printed book of the same name by the authors which were produced in fundraising support of the Maritime Museum of British Columbia and The Shearwater Naval Museum. The books are no longer available new in print, only on the second-hand market. Now this list is much more extensive than those contained in the two printed editions – new names have been added and a great many of the entries have been brought up to date and corrected.

2197 matches. 44 pages. Max 50 records per page.
