Perimeter Airlines, the Swearingen Metroliner, and Manitoba

Winnipeg based Perimeter Airlines and the Metro II have shared an intimate relationship since the 1970's. The airline provides schedules air service to over 17 communities accross northern Manitoba.

This is a 2 part DVD program. Part one of the production features an extremely technical prestart check and external walkaround of the Metroliner by First Officer Gavin Katz! We'll go on to discover Perimeter's unique overhaul facility during a guided tour with General Manager, Mark Wehrle.

The second DVD has both visual and instrument approaches in store. We'll explore the Metro's ability to easily operate from 3000 to 4000 foot gravel runways. No details are missed, crews cover the aspects of gravel operations, the Metro's on board systems are revealed, emergency checklists are reviewed and an abundance of northern piloting skills are shared with us. Pilots Dale Chokan, Troy McFadyen, Gerry Mofet, and Shannon Rennie discuss their aviation careers and deliver many 'fast paced' flights!

Special thanks to the Perimeter team from all of us at Take Flight Video Productions!
