GST on sale of private airplane

Dad owns a small airplane together with his adult son. Dad is also registered for GST due to sole prop. farming income. The son is not a GST registrant. The dad is also a 50/50 shareholder with his wife of the family run small business corporation. For what is worth the corporation also owns a small aircraft which is used by the corporation.

Is the father required to collect GST on the sale of the privately owned aircraft? I think this maybe similar to how GST applies to private owned automobiles. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks

Did Dad own his share of the plane through the farm business? Did he claim GST on the purchase of the plane? I think the answer to these questions would also be the answer to whether he collects GST on the sale.
