Our Aircraft

All of our aircraft are equipped with Satellite tracking. We operate the historic deHavilland DHC-2 Beaver and the resilient Cessna 185 & 206. These aircraft are perfectly designed for the commercial transport of passengers and freight to rudimentary, remote locations that are encountered in coastal British Columbia. Our core group of pilots are highly knowledgeable of the local area with over 150 years of combined experience in the air.
