Early morning flight

Posted by on Tuesday, June 9, 2009 at 7:59 am

Some days through the summer we have an early start.  Last Saturday was one of those days.  Alone in the aircraft heading out to pick up a group of anglers from one of our lakes, the air was still, the airwaves were quiet and the view was fantastic.

Office in the Sky

Posted by on Monday, June 8, 2009 at 7:11 am

Returning from one of our outposts, Karen was in the Cessna when we crossed paths. Being handy with the camera, she took the opportunity to capture a photo of my office in the sky.

We fly our guests over some of the greatest wilderness in the country in some very “classy classic” aircraft.

Sometimes the flight alone ...read more.

Even tho’ I see this type of view almost daily, I am still impressed. The Northwestern part of Ontario is magnificent to say the least.

If you haven’t seen this type of wilderness yourself, give us a call or send an email . We’d love to help you plan your Ignace Outpost vacation.

We not only fly you over ...read more.

Norseman – from Ignace to Calgary

Posted by on Friday, February 20, 2009 at 10:02 am

While in Calgary last week, I stopped by the Petro Canada Tower.  This is the tallest building in Calgary and the head offices of Petro Canada.  Hanging in the lobby is a Norseman aircraft.  In it self this is impressive but there is an Ignace Airways connection.  This aircraft was operated by Ignace Airways in the late 70’s and early ...read more.

Oh the joys!

Posted by on Wednesday, October 22, 2008 at 7:43 am

October brings some of the worst flying weather in our area.

It is also in October that we have moose hunters out and are in the last stages of our season. It happens often in October that as weather patterns change, we encounter flight delays. On Sunday, Randy and I went to our Seseganaga camp to pick up our successful ...read more.

Another segment of our how it’s done series.

This boat is being flown from our Gamble Lake camp to Seseganaga Lake.

All our boats are flown into the lakes with the Otter. This is how it is done. The boat is tied onto the side of the Otter. We use Herc straps however ropes are sometimes used. Making sure the ...read more.

Office with a view

Posted by on Monday, September 15, 2008 at 7:54 am

I know guys who spend their whole career chasing the prestigious corner office. Personally I gave that up years ago. I prefer the front office, left seat, a few thousand feet up. It’s nothing fancy, no coffee delivered, the seat is slightly uncomfortable, no executive bathroom but the view is perfect.

One of the best parts of my ...read more.

How it is done

Posted by on Sunday, September 14, 2008 at 8:10 am

A lot of what happens around here happens when guests are not here. Regular maintenance is of high importance with our aircraft. We follow stringent manufacturer’s and government guidelines in maintaining our fleet.

Quite often I am asked, “How do you get the airplanes in the hangar?”

We have a lift cart which goes under the spreader bars of the ...read more.
