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 boat is secure is very important.
There are also certain conditions of flight we must abide by when carrying external loads such as boats. Of particular concern are winds and wind gusts. We certainly will not carry boats outside the aircraft when thunder storms are forecast for the intended flight route.
