Ignace Airways charter service is our seaplane business, continuously servicing Northwestern Ontario for over 50 years. Karen and Brad Greaves have operated the business since 1985. Experience counts.

We operate our own fleet of aircraft. Be assured our first priority is your safety. Aircraft service and maintenance is of primary importance. Weather permitting, we strive to stay within minutes of our agreed upon departure and pickup times. We operate a de Havilland Beaver (the 8th wonder of the world), the famous “Stoneboat” (the de Havilland Otter) and a Cessna 206.

We do have minimum charges for each aircraft as well as rates for charter by the mile and/or hour, sightseeing, external loads, and waiting. Please contact us for current rates and conditions of carriage.

Our pilots

Legends are born in this area and our well trained, professional and seasoned bush pilots have reputations which are exceeded by none.  Our pilots are the best in the business. Between just two of our pilots is almost 75 years of safe Canadian bush flying experience. Sometimes a weather delay is worth the wait just to be able to spend a little story swapping time with the legendary bush pilots at our base.

Ignace Airways (1996) Ltd holds Air operator licence 962051 issued by the Canadian Transportation Agency and Air Operator Certificate 1562 issued by Transport Canada. Our safety and compliance record is exemplary, as will be evidenced when you choose to fly with us.
