Yes - spares for now. There is some thought that, if business requires, we might get HUZ going again next year. One of our Pilots has some talent with a camera. I'll ask him to take some new photos of the fleet and send to Bryan for the website.

O.M.G. Yeeeess please. Especially the interior, the oleos, the engines, props, compartments.....I feel a full walk-round coming on! Oh, you lucky people to be able to just breeze up with a camera and spend some time just walking around such a magnificent craft. I am so dead jealous! :) What I would give for that just one-time........

This is incredibly good news, Gord21. Is it possible to get to know more about where and when C-GDDJ and C-FUAZ will fly? Is scheduled air service in preparation?

Those two Gooses have been flying for about 6 weeks now. We operate a regular scheduled service, seven days a week, along the inlets in the central coast of British Columbia. We also do on demand charters. Our customers are mostly forestry workers, aboriginals, and sport fishermen. Occasionally we book a round trip seat on our sched for folks who just want to go for a ride in these amazing airplanes.
