The real ice pilots

Posted by on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 at 2:28 pm

We are trying.  May 15 we have open water on Agimak Lake.  Unfortunately, the little ice left on the lake drifted (blew) into our break wall last night.  We are ice bound.  In anticipation of walleye opener this Saturday, we spent the morning breaking ice with the boat and finally got come airplanes moving.  In the video, Randy is taking more.


Wrapping it up

The 2012 season is over.  The aircraft are out of the water and the closing up of camps is finished.  Now just a few items to wrap things up for the year. 


The motors are checked over, plugs changed, lower unit oil replaced, props filed and fishing line caught in the prop hub removed. 

The office more.


Joys of fall flying

Since the last post, our weather has turned decidedly fall like.  We’ve had snow, cold winds, and freezing rains. 

This weather brings, wet feet, cold hands, soggy clothes and a desire to be flying in the summer.


De-icing the aircraft before we fly is both required by law and common sense.  The effort requires waiting for more.


Experience counts

Over the years many of our guests have got to know Randy.  And I can not count the number of times guests have commented on his skill and ability as a pilot.  I think some come here just to fly with him. 


Recently, Randy was awarded a DeHavilland achievement certificate and pin for surpassing 10,000 hours of more.

Getting camps ready for spring opener has many odd jobs.  Why not get someone odd to do them?  As the old adage goes, “Don’t ask someone to do something you wouldn’t do yourself.”

One week today is walleye opener and our season will be officially “on”.  We are getting ready at the camps and everything is more.
