My name is Stephen D James. I am the Founder/Owner/President of the company "Arrow206". I am a trucker by trade for over 40 years. I bring to this project the opportunity to find people with the same interests in Rebuilding a Canadian Aviation Legend. And together, WE are working to bring an "Avro Arrow" aircraft back into existence and our lives.
My name is Shaun Grimes, I am apart of the Research and Developmental team and Lead Aircraft mechanic for Arrow206 and Project206. I am a licensed AME with over 16 years experience on aircraft. I am currently working on research projects and helping with marketing for the groups. Also my Grandfather had a hand in building both the CF-100 and CF-105 Aircraft!

I'm an AME, and have been working primarily on medivac B350, as well as B1900C/D for over 10 years. Before this I was working with a group rebuilding a DH-98 Mosquito from the ground up. Ultimately this is what moved my path into aircraft maintenance. Sadly I had to part ways with that project when I moved to BC. I am thankful to be a part of this new project however, and look forward to seeing it's future as we move forward.
I am the Arrow206/Project206 Historian and researcher and worked in the Aviation industry for a few year in the Maintenance department! I am involved in the Marketing and Media area's along with writing the newsletter!
