Aviation enthusiasts, pilots, and anyone interested in the history of flying will enjoy this account of Canada's involvement in the aviation industry, and specifically aircraft prototype testing. Canadian pilots were exemplary fliers during the war, and many took up new careers as test pilots when Canada began designing aircraft for the world market in the 1950s. The Chosen Ones puts readers in the cockpit with pilots whose life experience has been filled with many heart-stopping moments both on this continent and abroad. Black-and-white photographs are featured. Sean Rossiter, author of The Immortal Beaver.
