The Flight Program, overseen by Department H, is the Canadian government's response to the mutant "problem".
A training program for mutant youth, implemented as part of the Canadian health system, rather than the military or judicial systems. Training is compulsory, but once reliable control is achieved, the participants are not required to participate further unless they wish.
Following M-Day, the program is under political review.
Following the basic powers control training of Gamma Flight, young mutants are offered the chance to train and work with Beta Flight. One of the major elements of Beta Flight is disaster relief in Canada. Still quite new, it maintains a database of powers and locations across the country, matching powers and locations to specific disasters. For example, when a forest fire gets out of control in BC, they look for Beta Flight mutants in the area who have applicable powers to assist. They get paid a small monthly stipend, like being in the National Guard or similar, and 99% of the time, just live normal lives.
Following M-Day, the program was shut down for assessment of the mutant threat.
Alpha Flight was originally the idea of James Hudson, a final extension of his Flight program of mutant registration and training. He saw it as a mixed group of mutant and human specialists, supported by advanced or esoteric technology and developments from various Department H programs, designed to respond to strange or preternatural events. Hudson and his wife Heather had worked on the program for years, trying to convince both the Director of Department H and the Canadian Defense Ministry. However, while the Flight program in general was a success, Alpha never got past the theoretical stages.
