A while back, as I was researching family genealogy, I took a detour into aviation history. Stories about my uncles, both bush pilots, captured my imagination. As pioneer aviators in the 1920s and 1930s they would have faced endless challenges flying in remote areas of Canada.

So I began researching their adventures. The more I researched, the more fascinated I became by the early days of aviation and the intrepid pilots who took such great risks in a day when the planes themselves were unreliable, when air to ground communications were way in the future, and when maps were often inaccurate or simply didn’t exist.

In this blog I hope to share some of what I have unearthed through this research. As time goes on, I may broaden the focus to include subjects other than aviation.

I hope you’ll find the blog entertaining and perhaps even illuminating. I value feedback, so please feel free to comment or to contact me.
