This documentary tells the story of Max Ward, a former bush pilot whose company grew to become one of the major airlines in Canada. A study of entrepreneurship, the film focuses on Ward himself, depicting his distinctive style of hands-on management. Between hallway meetings, informal chats with the staff, checks on maintenance, flight preparations and in-flight conversations with vacationing customers it becomes apparent that the president's personal touch is a key element in Wardair’s success story.

    This is a fantastic story of Max and his accomplishments of setting the standard of Canadian holiday passenger travel. The governmental battles he fought to deregulate a monopoly driven system. The stupidity of the controls and issues forced upon Him and his Business . A true pioneer in Canadian aviation history.

    Fantastic Film and could you imagine if Max Ward would have remained as Ward Air and compete in today's competitive aviation commercial business.
