2019 CANADIANS IN FLIGHT First Day Cover
Celebrate Canada’s rich aviation history with this Official First Day Cover honouring the award-winning Lazair ultralight. This stylish collectible, one in a set of five, is part of our Canadians in Flight issue.
Considered one of the best aircraft of its kind, the Ultraflight Lazair was a best-seller, with 1,200 manufactured between 1979 and 1985. Sold as a kit to be built at home, the twin-engined Lazair had a top speed of 64 km/h.
In 1983, Lazair inventor Dale Kramer was honoured for outstanding contribution to the development of aeronautics in Canada. Kramer’s stamp is cancelled in his birthplace of Port Colborne, Ontario.
