Subject: The old days
Hi Netletter people;
Just to let you know how much I enjoy reading about he old TCA days . It brings back a lot of great memories, In 1939 I was working for the DOT at the radio range station in Calgary when Al Loke invited me to join TCA as a radio operator. I remember Dave Clark was station manager but I can't remember the rest of the staff except for Charles Skelton ( I hope I have spelt that last name correctly) the terminal had not been built yet so we worked in a small shack. In less than a year Charles and I had moved to Winnipeg me to become a Flight Dispatcher and Charlie to become pilot. Those were great and exciting days,

As the hard years of the Great Depression set in, many air service companies in Alberta were shutting down or being absorbed by larger companies. This was the case when Western Canadian Airways bought out Commercial and changed its name to Canadian Airways.
Canadian Airways was active in many of the northern destinations, including the Grande Prairie and Peace River region as demand continued to grow late in the 1930s. However, by 1940, the Depression and Second World War made operations extremely difficult, and by the end of 1941, Canadian Airways suffered the same fate as its former competitors. It was purchased by Canadian Pacific Air Lines Ltd.
