Publisher Description

In the wake of world-wide media attention generated by Omni Film Productions' "ICE PILOTS NWT" comes an insider's story of Buffalo Airways, written by one of the few chosen to fly for this colorful northern airline, critically-acclaimed author and aviation historian Darrell Knight. 


This detailed narrative speaks of the long road to becoming a pilot, and the pitfalls and sacrifices attendant with landing a flying job with one of the toughest airlines to hire on with in the Canadian Arctic. A host of characters - including the tough, enigmatic warbird-airline owner, 'Buffalo Joe' McBryan - leap from the pages of this heart-felt reminiscence. 


The book is a rollicking, blow-by-blow "must read" for anyone interested in the aviation business, vintage aircraft and the Canadian north, as well as a testament to the human spirit caught in the struggle against adversity.
