  • Buffalo Airways – Home of Ice Pilots is stupendous with beautiful photos, readable text for both pilots and plain folks. Could not have been better!
    Jack Kerr, St. Catharines, ON
  • This is one of the most beautifully produced books I have ever owned. A treasure trove of pictures and narrative with some of the best air photography I have seen. An absolute “must own” for any pilot or anyone with an interest in the Canadian North and the people that fly airplanes and fight fires there.
