Since winning the 2009 Gold IPPY award for his fiction work about bush pilots, Ed has spent hundreds of hours interviewing real people who worked in the aviation industry. His new book Ontario Central Airlines - The Kenora Years re-lives the lives of these men and women as they opened up the vast wilderness of Northwestern Ontario.

Background Information


I have always beleived that bush pilots are true Canadian legends.  My latest book is the story of owners, pilots, managers, dock workers , dispatchers, and maintenance people who worked for Ontario Central Airlines.


Ontario Central Airlines - The Kenora Years is about the people who worked for Barney Lamm.  Through tragedy and triumph, it reveals the adventure that always draws line pilots back to talking about their bush flying days.  

Twenty-four glossy inserts containing fifty pictures portray everyday life from the Kenora dock, to the maintenance facilities at Lakeside and later Redditt, Ontario.  The book comes with an index of the all the people mentioned in its pages.


Here is a view of the book's cover
