Delivered to the RCAF in Jul 1941 as AJ586. Struck off charge in Oct 1960 and sold to Robert Horn in 1966 as N4657T. He kept it in storage in Michigan until sold to Barry Smith in Jan 2003. Finally restored to flying condition and flown in authentic RCAF markings as AJ586/89, registered N586AJ. Sold to Germany in Jul 2007 as D-FITE. At that time the authentic RCAF markings on this wonderful aircraft were unfortunately replaced by these fake USAAF markings and equally fake serial. In 2017 it was sold to Switzerland and based at Grenchen, and on 5 April 2018 it was re-registered to HB-RTA.
Harvard 3830 was with the Royal Canadian Air Force from May 1941 - October 1960 when it was transferred to Crown Assets Disposal Corporation. Stored until sold to Hicks & Lawrence, an aerial application company with many agricultural aircraft, in 1966. After several other owners, the aircraft was donated in 1996 to the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association with whom it still flies in it's vintage RCAF colors.
