The Archive has proven to be a helpful research tool in circulation as a compact disc for some years prior to the creation of this CAHS version of the publication. The collection documents and preserves information on the lives and careers of many of Canada’s airline pilots and their associates from the 1920s until its publication in 2006. It draws on various sources, including biographies, obituaries, retirement notices, and newspaper articles.
Its creators and contributors hope that this Archive will provide a valuable insight into who these aviators were, where they came from, how they got involved in aviation and some of the highlights and experiences of their lives.
This digital publication will be of value to many, including the pilots’ families, historians, and future generations interested in this mode of transportation in Canada. If you are exploring the history of the broader subject, or any individual pilot or airline, we believe this publication will be helpful in your research. We also hope that it inspires the next generation to pursue a career in aviation or recount your aviator colleagues, friends, and families’ accomplishments for posterity.
