Canadian Aviation

Category: Canadian Aviation

In the Arctic aviation plays a crucial  role in the everyday lives of people.  The railroads and highways do not connect the communities as they do along the 49th parallel and the annual summer sea lift is the only access possible for bulk freight.  Aircraft are thus the local bus, taxi, ambulance and grocery truck. Air service in these areas is not discretionary or solely for vacationers and businessmen.  Simply put, it is a daily necessity and lifeline to goods and services that Canadians who live down south take for granted.
