Re-discover what flying is all about with Big River Air and Arctic Excursions!

The rugged Single Otter will be sure to impress! Our routing will take us on a return flight from Fort Smith to Fort Chipewyan. Aboard the turbine Otter, Dwayne will discuss northern flying as a career, the intricacies of the Single Otter on floats, and share an abundance of local knowledge!
From Yellowknife’s Old Town float base we will board the roaring Beaver for some truly picturesque flights to some of the north’s hideaways! There are no docks around these parts. Watch closely as Big River Airs’ experienced pilot sails the beaver onto a rocky shoreline, and beaches her in the shallows! Loading, unloading, briefings, radio calls... Around here, you are on your own!
