Description: Wheels, Skis and Floats tells the story of one of Canada's pioneering pilots. For an adventurous young Englishman, the early years of aviation offered much in the way of challenges and excitement. In the right place ant the right time, Ed Burton was able to fly practically every type of airplane as it came into service.

Wheels, Skis and Floats tells the story of one of Canada's pioneering pilots. From barnstorming and instructing in the Royal Flying Corps to delivering mail and bush flying with Ontario Provincial Air Service, Burton's exploits are vividly recounted. Diaries, newspaper clippings, personal letters and sketches, as well as an impressive collection of photographs contribute to the background of this very interesting book.
