The CAHS Sesquicentennial Book List – One year later!

Books 1 545

The Canadian Aviation Historical Society celebrated Canada’s 150th Birthday on July 1, 2017 by publishing a list of 150 books about Canadian aviation. But we exceeded our goal – the list has 201 titles suggested by members!

Again we recommend our list for some fine summer reading – or good reading anytime! The list has titles compiled by author’s name, title, publisher and date published. Books appear on the list were published over nearly a century, from 1919 to 2017. Included are many written by CAHS members, such as all those illustrated here.

The list includes books from large and well-known publishers to small and little-known publishers, and books that are self-published. Books named on the list cover every aspect of Canadian aviation from its earliest days to the present.

Where can you find books listed that you would like to read? Check your local library, book stores and archival and aviation museum collections. If you can’t find what you want there, you will probably find the book you want with an internet search.

A good resource for locating books is It connects to an international network of book vendors in Canada, the U.S., England and Australia.
