1990-1994 Canada Aviation One in Deluxe Box

The first fifty years of powered flight in Canada represent a courageous saga mixed with fortitude and good fortune.

The early airplane was a plaything for adventurous adults. Competitions and air shows would draw thousands of curious spectators, providing them with their first opportunity to see the new flying machines. Daring young flyers would astound onlookers by buzzing the skylines and high-rises of their time. Accidents were plentiful but, ironically, deaths were few, even though the inexperienced aviators knew little of the science of flight.

The pioneers of aviation included more than just pilots. Many inventors, engineers, and hobbyists worked in garages and barns across the country for their chance to soar through the air. Though many made contributions to the evolution of the airplane, for the most part, the only reward they received for their efforts and self-sacrifice was the satisfaction of having tried their best.

Later, passenger air service would unite family and friends across the immense nation. Journeys that used to take a week could now be completed in hours. The efforts, resources and determination devoted to opening this huge and harsh country through the development of aviation cannot be forgotten. Though the railroad may have tied the country together, the airplane was responsible for bringing Canadians closer.
