Our aircraft are all very well maintained and our DHC-2 Beavers are equipped with Baron Stol kits for additional safety. We use float equipped Beavers mostly for transportation of caribou and moose hunters as well as fishing partners. Our area is world renowned for it's trophy fishing and hunting. We boast five species of Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, Dolly Vardon, White Fish, Grayling and Northern Pike. Game animals consist of moose, caribou, black and brown bears. We transport trappers during the winter months to remote camps to harvest wolves, wolverines, beavers, lynx, foxes, muskrats, and martins.

Many of the rivers in our area are excellent for raft trips for hunting and fishing vacations. Sightseeing, backpacking, and wilderness adventures are ways to enjoy this area of our beautiful state. We will tailor your trip to your specific needs or requests. We want to make this a very memorable excursion!
