Come join us as we explore the world from the perspective of those who
view the earth from above. The emphasis will be on Canadian bush pilots and aircraft, but
the connecting theme throughout the site will be the desire to fly to the remote areas of
Not just for bush pilots, however,
Virtual Horizons will be for anyone who has flown or who has ever wanted to fly. We will
bring you stories, articles, letters, and photographs (fact or fiction; past or present)
from and about bush pilots and the places they fly.
Live the virtual present and relive
the past as we visit the incredibly beautiful landscapes, and experience the sheer
excitement of flying into a remote fly-in fishing resort, lodge or bush camp on a Cessna,
a Beaver, or an Otter. You may even recognize one of your pilots in our stories or find
yourself the subject of one of our tall tales.
So get prepared to
buckle your seat belt. Virtual Horizons wants to bring you back the pure enjoyment and
romance in reading the best stories about bush pilots as they wing their way across the
vast areas of the world's untamed wilderness.

NOTES FROM THE EDITOR:
I am very pleased to announce that,
for the second year in a row, Virtual Horizons has been named as one of the top aviation
sites out in cyber space. When I started only a short time ago, my aviation related web
searches came up blank except for a small site by Embry-Riddle University. Now, suddenly,
I am only one of hundreds. Time flies. As do we all eventually. So admire the designer
seal, buy the book, read the review, and then let me know what you think.
On the next page down from here, the
Virtual Horizons home page, first time visitors can use the
bush plane images for moving to the start of either the Feature
Stories page, or the Aviation Friends page, or the eBush Communications page. Enter through
"Feature Stories" for a collection of aviation stories. Enter through
"Aviation Friends" for the bushplane photo gallery, jobs, and great new stories
from one of you, to be found in "Your Story." Enter or exit through
"eBush Communications" for a collection of new services, including a
Bush Pilot Bulletin Board, and
a Bush Pilot Registry. Every other page can be found from those three centers. For
revisits, bookmark the home page. From there you can use the text links to jump ahead to
your destination page...
Once inside, the attitude
indicator (or horizon) at the bottom right of each page will guide you back to where you
started or to the next destination of choice. The eBush
Communications page is the way out. In other words the "Exit." From there
you can jump off into any one of my Select Site
locations. This page is under construction, but check it out to see what is coming up.
Virtual Horizons is not specifically a commercial site, but for those of you looking for
exposure, or for companies wishing to advertise, please email me with your ideas.
Thanks for your support.
