Description

Sky Riders traces the development of aviation in Alberta from the first tentative flights of fragile early aircraft to the establishment of the airplane as a key mode of transportation for recreation, business, industry, and agriculture. The only comprehensive book about aviation in the province, Sky Riders looks at developments in Alberta in the context of world aviation history.

With more than 100 archival photographs of famous aviators and their airplanes, aviation events and incidents, and aircraft through the eras, Sky Riders recaptures the romance and excitement of a bygone age and reveals the enduring fascination and support among Albertans for all aspects of aviation.
