A repaint of RealAir's SIAI-Marchetti SF.260 commemorating the first powered flight in Canada on 23 February 1909 by the AEA Silver Dart, flown off the ice of Baddeck Bay, a sub-basin of Bras d'Or Lake, Nova Scotia.

The original Silver Dart was designed and built by the Aerial Experiment Association, formed by Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, a derivative of an earlier aircraft built by a Canadian/U.S. team. The aircraft was piloted by one of its designers, John McCurdy a native of Baddeck who was studying engineering at the U. of Toronto.

When the Silver Dart lifted off, it flew only half a mile, at an elevation from three to nine meters, and a speed of roughly 65 kilometres per hour (40 mph). On its fifth flight, McCurdy wrecked the craft when one wheel struck a rise in the ground while landing and it never flew again.

A replica of the Silver Dart made its commemorative flight on 22 February 2009. Eventually, it is intended to be permanently displayed at the Alexander Graham Bell Museum in Baddeck.

The 824 Silver Dart Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets in St. Peter's, Nova Scotia is named in honour of the Silver Dart.
