It is little known that Don managed Ontario Central Airlines for many years. The memories he shared of his bush days are recorded in this book -
Ontario Central Airlines
The Kenora Years
Available now, this non-fiction book is a 'must have' for your bush pilot collection.
Re-live the airlines' history as revealed through hundreds of hours of interviews with pilots, mechanics, former managers and dispatchers who kept the airplanes flying.

Owned and operated by Barney Lamm, who with his wife Marion also ran Barney's Ball Lake Lodge on the English River north of Kenora, this airline flew throughout Northwestern Ontario.
Ontario Central Airlines - The Kenora Years traces the company's history starting when Rex Kiteley and Gordy Hollinsworth purchased two planes and the bases at Red Lake and Kenora from Grant McConachie. For over two decades it serviced miners, commercial fishermen, Native communities and fly-in fishing lodges in Northwestern Ontario.
"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."

Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame
