Dear Friends:

As many of you have noticed, The Internet Movie Plan Database ( has recently had a hard time keeping up with the growing demands of our users. In 2009 when a couple of us got together to begin putting the website together, space was never an issue. In fact, it has steadily grown with virtually no problems throughout the years.

In about the middle of 2016 we began to run into server space issues. We have since made upgrades (moving to a VPS, buying more space, etc), but the site continues to outgrow the upgrades. The meager ad revenue generated by the site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server. We who manage the site have never made money from it, it has only ever earned enough money to cover actual server costs.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we are asking for donations to keep this site up and running consistently like it did when it was a smaller, newer site. If you've enjoyed this website and would like to see it continue being the site you go to for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Oh yeah, new users and edits are now active (hopefully for good) while we're testing new and improved spam/bot protections :)
Thank you,
IMPDb Staff

Canadian Airways Ltd logo

Canadian Airways Limited was established in 1926 as Western Canada Airways for few months. Over time, the company obtained 51 Aircraft and an assortment of top bush pilots and military pilots, all of which provided various services, particularly cargo transport, to Northwestern Canada. In 1930, Canadian Airways Limited was established after the acquisition of several aviation companies. Air Mail was the backbone of aviation at the time as it underpinned regular services and helped cover costs. In 1937, the Department of Transport was considering developing a national air transport system to help protect Canada's budding Airline industry and formed a Government run entity known as TCA-Trans-Canada Air Lines in 1937. In 1939, Canadian Pacific Railway Limited began to implement a plan to purchase ten bush airlines from around Canada to form a new airline. The companies were Ginger Coote Airways (Vancouver), Yukon Southern Air Transport (Vancouver/Edmonton), Canadian Airways Ltd (Winnipeg), Wings LTD (Winnipeg), Prairie Airways (Moose Jaw), Mackenzie Air Services (Edmonton), Arrow Airways (The Pas), Starratt Airways (Hudson), Quebec Airways (Montreal), Dominion Skyways (Montreal). This Airline would become Canadian Pacific Airlines, a response to the TCA in 1942.
