    *  Denotes aircraft types not yet in, but about to enter, Canadian Forces service.
      Denotes types assigned a CF designation but leased from private contractors.
        Although "CH-136" is still used by the Air Force, the type was retired in 1992.
        These retired aircraft  ( now owned by contractor Bombardier and, technically,
        Bell 206s) are used  for Phase III  Helicopter Training at CFB Portage La Prairie.
