“Do you know what the three most exciting sounds in the world are? Anchor chains, plane motors and train whistles.” George Bailey (James Stewart) ‘It’s a Wonderful Life‘.
We have the sound of “plane motors” covered; our iconic DHC-2 Beaver aircraft are powered by a reliable 450hp radial (round) engine that produces a very distinctive rumble. The Beaver floatplane provides passengers and onlookers a sense of nostalgia for a point in time when Northern Canada was first being opened up and discovered by aircraft. The Beaver was designed for flight in rugged and remote areas. Its short takeoff and landing (STOL) capabilities make it ideal for areas normally only accessible by canoe or by foot. Designed and built in Canada to operate on floats, skis, and wheels.
The Beaver was named one of the top ten Canadian engineering achievements of the 20th century. It has become iconic to plane spotters and has been commemorated on currency and postage, and received recognition in artwork, photography and in film. It's rugged dependability and exceptional performance have made it a favourite with bush pilots, passengers and operators for over 75 years.
Our pilots have a tight bond with the aircraft they fly and will be more than happy to enhance the onboard experience of your guests by answering any questions they may have throughout their flights.
We strongly believe that your flights with Ahmic Air should be enjoyable and a distinct part of any Northern Canadian vacation; we aim to provide more than just a “seat” and to make your experience on our aircraft fun, memorable and safe.
During the warmer months when we have open water, we operate our aircraft on floats. During the colder months when ice conditions and temperatures permit we operate our aircraft on skis. Typically float season in Yellowknife is from the end of May through to the middle of October and Ski Season in Yellowknife is from the middle of February through to the end of April. Each season is different so if you need us during a shoulder season call and we will let you know our availability.
Gift Certificates may be applied to any of our flight services, any season or any Ahmic Air merchandise.
