About WAN

We’re all about clarity and understanding.

Our Values:

  • Accuracy
  • Integrity
  • Honesty

We offer in-depth coverage of Canadian aviation. We pledge to go beyond the headline to get at the nub of a story, to help you understand not just what is happening, but why.

Our policies demand at least two sources of information on each story, along with providing useful embedded links to original sources as often as possible.
