Bailey the Bushplane

Bailey the Bushplane tells the story of spirited, yet insecure, bushplane Bailey, Bailey the Beaver. Bailey is determined to fly important missions, but inadvertently leads the team of bushplane friends into trouble when an out of control forest fire approaches a remote trading post.

Bushplane Stories

Bailey the Bushplane is the first in a planned series of children’s books by Bushplane Stories. The stories, written by Richard, illustrated by Amy, and printed in Sault Ste. Marie, are about a group of bushplane friends that operate out of a small airport in Northern Ontario.
