By: Donald F. Parrott
168 pages, paperback
Owing to the vast land stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans, 4000 miles apart and 2000 miles from its southern border to the Arctic Ocean, Canada became an air minded nation. All roads, rails and major communications go through Winnipeg, the capital city of Manitoba. Explorers and fur traders began using commercial aviation after the First World War when aircraft became available for sale at low cost as war surplus. In these crafts, supplies, explorers and traders were flown quickly over long distances in the barren lands when there were no roads, rivers or lakes.
