"Designed to set nervous air travellers at ease, the film dramatizes the first flight of Mr. Barnaby. The film concentrates on the extensive training and experience of T.C.A. pilots."


"Business in Motion: Films of Current Interest," Canadian Business 23 (April 1950): 102.
"Mr. Barnaby, a 'timid soul', has to make a rush flight to Halifax. He has never flown before and his nervousness is demonstrated in a dream sequence, with an elevator boy, as a self-styled jet pilot, and a taxi driver, who once played hockey with the Edmonton Flyers, zooming into his life. Once aboard the plane, he is reassured by meeting the pilots and hearing about TCA's careful recruiting and training of potential pilots."
