R. F. (Russ) Baker
After completing two years at the University of Manitoba, Russell Baker went on to complete his commercial pilot's license and became a barnstormer throughout the province. Baker later became a bush pilot and flew numerous mercy flights.
In 1946, he organized Central B.C. Airways at Fort St. James, B.C.. His company began to absorb smaller airlines to better serve those areas where access was dependent on weather conditions, terrain and profit. In 1957 Baker took over Canadian Pacific Airlines in Alberta and Saskatchewan and prior to his death had laid the groundwork for the airbus service between Calgary and Edmonton and for the daily service from these centres to the rim of the Polar Sea to the Arctic islands and beyond.
