Early developments spearheaded by courageous pilots and engineers in the rugged terrain of British Columbia were instrumental in the development of helicopter technology internationally. The early, fragile-looking machines made vast areas of the province readily accessible for the first time. Soon they were being used in surveying, mining, forestry, agriculture, fire-fighting, search and rescue, and as air ambulances. Many first-hand experiences and interviews bring this exciting and dramatic story to life. Extensively illustrated with vintage photographs."
