WHERE AND HOW IT ALL BEGAN

From the early tentative steps of glider and kite flying, to the mighty roar of the massive Saturn rockets, Canadian Aviation began on February 23, 1909, when Canada’s first pilot and the first man to fly in the British Empire, J. A. D. McCurdy, rose majestically into the air from the frozen surface of Bras d’Or Lake, Baddeck, Nova Scotia  in the Silver Dart, an aeroplane he had designed and built with the aid of his fellow associates, who made up the nascent but brilliant Aerial Experiment Association. To unravel the fascinating saga of Canada’s early aviation development, Honourary Colonel Gerald Haddon, who knew his grandfather for the first nineteen years of his life, will reveal how and where the first tantalizing steps were taken.
