From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Larry Milberry (born 1943) is a Canadian aviation author and publisher.

Milberry is a life-long aviation enthusiast whose first book, Aviation in Canada, was published by McGraw-Hill in 1979. Now an aviation classic, this book was written over a decade while he worked as a high school teacher in the Toronto District Catholic School Board. He ended his teaching career to start CANAV Books, his one-man publishing operation, in 1980. He has since authored, co-authored or edited 21 books on Canadian aviation history, including many of the best-known reference books on the subject.[1]

Milberry's research has taken him to all parts of Canada and to many overseas destinations. Although never a pilot, he has flown in more than 100 types from the Ford Trimotor to the Noorduyn Norseman, C-130 Hercules, CF-18 Hornet, Pitts Special, Sikorsky Skycrane and the giant Antonov 124.[2]

His contribution to aviation in Canada was recognized in 2004, when he was inducted into the Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame.[3] Milberry is also a long-time member of the Canadian Aviation Historical Society.

Larry Milberry lives in The Beaches in Toronto. He has four children.
