Really how long ago did he fly up north, and for who. I use to live in the NWT, well I grew up there. I did most of my training up there and worked.

My Father used to work for Calm Air, way up north flying the Beavers and Twin Otters. That was where I was born, in Lynn Lake Manitoba. From there he progressed to Canadian Partner, then to Canadian, then Air Canada. He's a first officer on the 777 now, and gets some wicked flights. I really want to be a pilot, gotta start doing something about it!
