Canada’s bush pilots were a uniquely Canadian breed who endured incredible hardships in a relentless environment. They represented the spirit of adventure and determination in trying to make a living out of flying. Fur-clad and courageous, with the glamour of movie stars, they flew north into the unmapped hinterlands of the last great frontier. With little – if any – radio communication, plane and pilot often disappeared for days on end. They were dependent upon fuel caches being left in remote areas, on compasses made unreliable by magnetic influences and on maps that had large areas labeled “UNEXPLORED.”
