Found Aircraft FBA-2C1 Bush Hawk
Found Aircraft Centennial 100

Found Aircraft Canada was an aircraft manufacturer based in Parry Sound, Ontario. Found originally formed in 1946 to produce a new bush plane design, the FBA-1, but entered production in 1964 with the Found FBA-2. The original company ceased production of the FBA-2 in 1967. In 1994 the company re-formed and starting in 1997 placed the FBA-2 back in production as the FBA-2C1 Bush Hawk and FBA-2C2 Bush Hawk-XP.

As of 2008, two new and improved models were being developed for the private pilot market. Both will be built under their Expedition Aircraft brand, launched in 2007. The two models (the E350 and the E350XC) will be offered on both tricycle and conventional gear. The E350 is being marketed as a Cessna 206 competitor, featuring higher performance, four doors, and STOL performance. The Expedition E350 was FAA type certified in December 2008.<ref name="Expedition">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref><ref name="AvWeb31Dec08">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>
