Who We Are
This is more than just a business to us. We love the Canadian Wilderness. We like to experience the remote beauty that only Northwestern Ontario can provide. As we find time, we enjoy hunting and fishing ourselves so we have a pretty good idea of the quality and service you would like and expect from a fly-in outfitter.
This is not a second career nor a hobby for us. We have been at this long enough to see many outfitters come and go. We have chosen a lifestyle by which we were able to raise our children to appreciate the unique natural jewel Northwestern Ontario. We were both born and raised in the area and have chosen our home to be in a small northern community. After graduation from College, Brad pursued a career flying the legendary aircraft of the Canadian North. After years and years and thousands of hours flying over the greatest wilderness on earth, Brad, with his wife Karen, has chosen to share his passion in an untapped and quality wilderness area - the Heart of Northwestern Ontario - Ignace.
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) and the famous "Stoneboat" (the de Havilland Otter). Our pilots are the best in the business. Legends are born in this area and our well trained, professional and seasoned bush pilots have reputations which are exceeded by none. 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. We operate Ignace Airways as a charter company which provides air transportation throughout Northwestern Ontario. Our float planes can be chartered for sightseeing, remote canoing etc. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
