Canadian Semi-Official Airmails

My Semi-Official Airmail Page


This page is dedicated to the collection of Canadian Semi-Official Airmail stamps and covers. After searching the web, I realized just how little there is in terms of information. Considering the popularity of these issues ( I'm constantly the underbidder on Ebay... he! he! ), I decided to make a web page. What I hope to achieve is to highlight the individual companies, stamps, covers, pilots and other individuals that brought to life this interesting area of stamp collecting and postal history.

I would like to thank David G. Brown for his contributions to this page. David has some wonderful covers, stamps and photos that he graciously shared with me. You can find David's material in the Jack V. Elliot Air Service section, Elliot-Fairchild Air Service section, Elliot-Fairchilds Air Service section and Patricia Airways and Exploration Company Ltd. Once again, thank you David!


News and Notes

Lots of news to pass along.

My Yukon Airways exhibit received a Vermeil at the FIP show in Prague 2008. I was very pleased with the result.

My apologies for the lateness of the updates. I now have some time, (and the material) to update the page a little bit more often.

I have re-worked my Yukon Airways exhibit and I hope to have that up soon. I also want to redo the Yukon Airways section to include my new findings, but that will be a long term project.

My Yukon Airways exhibit received a Gold and best BNA single frame exhibit in Ottawa this May. I was quite pleased.
