Planey McPlaneface was not an option.

Still wish that Planey McPlaneFace was on there.  The real choices are Canso II, Guardian, Iris, Kingfisher and Turnstone.

That’s why you only go to the Internet with multiple choice- never fill in the blanks. :)

FWIW I voted “Guardian”.

 I had to sound out each name and see how it would sound doing a traffic advisory.

 “Straits traffic, Snake 502, military Guardian aircraft,1,000 ft, 3 miles south of Hornby Island, southbound.”

 Try that sentence with any of the proposed names and decide for yourself.

So “Straights Traffic, Snake 502, a military CASA 295, .......” is out? ;)

Since a few manufacturers have used "Guardian" as a designation for variants of their a/c, would there not be confusion.  Maybe Viking will claim trademark infringement on their "Guardian 400" Twotter.

I like "Iris", but then I once dated a woman named Iris and her skills were amazing.  She could raise me from the dead.

As long as there’s a good curry to go with it, of course.
“To stand on the firing parapet and expose yourself to danger; to stand and fight a thousand miles from home when you're all alone and outnumbered and probably beaten; to spit on your hands and lower the pike; to stand fast over the body of Leonidas the King; to be rear guard at Kunu-Ri; to stand and be still to the Birkenhead Drill; these are not rational acts. They are often merely necessary.”

We also have a thing in Canada for usually naming things after animals when we name equipment our selves

Just curious about what happens with the six CC-115 Buffalo once the new aircraft takes over: do they get re-rolled or declared surplus?
