Stamp: One (1) MNH SINGLE STAMP in title from theย 2019 Canada Post CANADIANS IN FLIGHT Seriesย ~ From a Booklet



Thisย SINGLE STAMP from a booklet of 10 PermanentTMย domestic stampsย from Canada Post: Canadians in Flight.

For millennia, we have looked skyward, longing to break the bonds of the earth to soar among the clouds. Canada has had its share of pioneers who bravely reached for the skies when flight was in its infancy or who used their gifts and vision to create new and better ways to fly. This stamp issue, designed by Ivan Novotny of Taylor|Sprules Corporation, celebrates three individuals and two aircraft that took Canadian aviation to new heights.

The first is the Avro Canada CF-105 Arrow, a fighter-interceptor jet capable of flying at more than twice the speed of sound. The second is the Ultraflight Lazair, a best-selling and award-winning ultralight with a top speed of 64 km/h.

The honoured individuals are William George Barker, VC, C.H. โ€˜Punchโ€™ Dickins, O.C., and Elizabeth โ€˜Elsieโ€™ MacGill, O.C.. A First World War flying ace, Barker is the most decorated military service member in the history of the British Empire. A pioneering bush pilot, Dickins made flights covering 1.6 million kilometres of northern Canadian wilderness. MacGill is a celebrated role model and trailblazer, the worldโ€™s first female aircraft designer and an influential adviser to the International Civil Aviation Organization.
