A Nation Soars is a trilogy of documentaries narrated by Dan Aykroyd and accompanied by a suite of educational initiatives that explore how aviation changed the course of the First World War, such as its vital part in Canada’s nation-defining victory at Vimy Ridge.

Produced by Sound Venture Productions and The Royal Canadian Geographical Society in collaboration with a number of key supporting partners, the documentaries — Drawn to Victory, Wings of Courage, and Flight Path of Heroes — highlight the lesser-known, distinctly Canadian aspects of the war.

From the early days of flight in 1914 to the aerial photography that produced the battle-winning maps of Vimy Ridge, A Nation Soars offers a fascinating and refreshing look at Canada’s part in the Great War.

The final episode of the series, Flight Path of Heroes, will broadcast Friday, 10 November 2017 at 21:00 EST on the CPAC channel.

The three-part series will then be re-broadcast in its entirety on the following dates:

Saturday, 11 November 2017 – 12:30 EST

Sunday, 12 November 2017 – 21:00 EST

Friday, 22 December 2017 – 21:00 EST
