Naming Edmonton: From Ada to Zoie

Of all cities in Canada, Edmonton was the birthplace of bush pilots. Bush Pilot Road honours the contributions of the many bush pilots who have F177own out of the Edmonton City Centre Airport. From this downtown airfield, bush pilots flew on often dangerous missions of mercy, carrying medical supplies to remote communities and ferrying their ill to hospitals in Edmonton, and delivering mail, freight and passengers to far-flung mission outposts and mining camps.
