RIP Max Ward, RCAF, Wardair and bush pilot

One of the best airlines I ever flew.

Canadian aviation pioneer Max Ward died Monday, CBC has confirmed. He was 98.

Ward was born in Edmonton in 1921. He served as a flight instructor with the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War before becoming a bush pilot.

In 1953, he founded Wardair in Yellowknife. By 1989, the airline would become the third-largest airline in Canada.

Used to see the blue/red Twin Otters in Yelloknife all the time - both at the actual as well as float plane airports.  Also flew to the UK for my 9th birthday present with my Grand Dad.
