It has been a Century since Newfoundland's first Aviation moment! Since that time, Newfoundland and Labrador has played a central role in the development of air travel. Strategically located as the most easterly place in North America, it became a popular take-off point for aviation forerunners attempting to cross the Atlantic and also served as a refueling point for round-the-world challenges.
