    Transport Canada responds to Transportation Safety Board criticism
    The Canadian Press via CKWX-Radio
    Transport Canada says implementing the Transportation Safety Board's recommendations to reduce fires after small plane crashes wouldn’t be simple, and wouldn’t be the most effective way to save lives. The federal department is responding to criticism from the safety board, which has argued that two pilots killed in a crash near Vancouver two years ago could still be alive if Transport Canada heeded its recommendations.

    Wings over central Alberta
    Innisfail Province
    Looking over the colorful patchwork of canola fields and cropland from 3,000 feet above the ground in an aircraft with no engine definitely sounds like an adventure not meant for the faint of heart.

    Bittersweet 50th anniversary for Canada's Sea King helicopters
    CBC News
    Canadian Armed Forces pilots have been flying Sea King helicopters for 50 years. That these aging beasts are still flying at all is testament to both the talents of those who have been operating and maintaining the old aircraft, and to the failings of a series of governments that have been unable to replace the tired, often grounded Sea Kings since at least 1986.
