The Aeronca Aircraft Corporation was established in November 1928 in Middletown, Ohio. It was the first company to build a truly light aircraft. The 7AC Champ(ion) was designed in tandem with the 11AC Chief; it first flew in 1944 and went into full production the following year, taking advantage of a growing post-war market.

Aeronca Champ, C-FEJJ, was donated to the Bushplane Centre by Dan Campbell of St. Joseph Island.
