"I am indebted to Ed for not only capturing the memories of those who worked for Ontario Central Airlines, but also the creative writing used to record and preserve this era of aviation for future generations." Don Watson- Founding director and member of Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame

Haakon Publishing

One of Canada's teur legends is the Canadian bush pilot.  Unlike Grant McConachie and Russ Baker, many were small operators who preferred the rugged life flying vast wilderness country to the comfort of a 747 captain's seat.

Among them were a few men of vision who wanted a larger piece of the aviation world and expanded their operations while not losing sight of the need for bush flying. Two of these would manage Ontario Central airlines in different styles.

Don Watson envisioned partnering up with Jack Austin of Autsin Airways to create a regional carrier in Ontario.  Denied the opportunity, he moved on to expand Pacific Western Airlines into 37 countries.

When Barney Lamm, who purchased OCA from Rex Kiteley and Gordy Hollinsworth, took over, he returned the airline to its roots serving fly-in fishing lodges from Red Lake and Kenora in Northwestern Ontario.

This is their story as told from the distant memories of people who worked for Barney.  Seven years in the making, this book will be an important addition to your aviation library.
