Aircraft used on our Ontario Outpost Lakes
A major part of a “fly-in” outpost business is obviously the flights into and out of your camp! This integral part of our operation is a huge responsibility that is not taken lightly and the job is not handed to just anyone with a plane.
Due North Outpost Camps charters the services of Wabakimi Air and other air charter companies to fly our guests and gear into our remote outpost camps. Wabakimi Air, owned and operated locally, is a long established air charter company conveniently located on a lake adjacent to the Due North main base. Wabakimi Air has been providing air transportation for anglers, hunters and others in the Armstrong area for over 30 years and has an excellent reputation in the air charter industry. Wabakimi Air was chosen by Due North because of their uncompromised commitment to safety and customer satisfaction.
Wabakimi Air operates a commercial fleet consisting of 2 DHC-2 Beaver and a DHC-3T Turbo Otter with experienced pilots that have a combined time in excess of 20,000 hours. These meticulously maintained aircraft are operated in accordance with Transport Canada regulations. Their fleet of three different planes allows for very efficient movement of different sized groups and to have more than one group in the air at one time! We recognize that guests would rather be on the dock at an outpost camp than on our dock at McKenzie Lake!
Due North Outpost Camps performs its camp check services, regular maintenance, fuel and propane runs and emergency flights using its own Cessna 172 Hawk XP.
