There are no roads in "The Land of the Human Beings", Kalaallit Nunaat – in English, Greenland. The geographic and demographic situation does not make it realistic to connect the towns and regions of Greenland by traditional road systems. Without air transport and without the little rugged Twin Otter plane large areas of Greenland would be cut off from the rest of the world.

This book is not just about Twin Otters from Greenland, Iceland, and Canada – and about their importance for Greenland through the last 30 years. It is also a book about, how travels have taken place in Greenland since the earliest days, and how aviation has developed from the first pioneers until recent time. Furthermore the author raises some questions and proposals regarding aviation in the future Greenland . Finally the book includes a comprehensive index, and various registers of Twin Otters, pilots, mechanics, other types of planes, etc.
