The chance of a return visit to Yellowknife (which turned out to be my fifth visit) was one of the main reasons for coming on this tour. The chance to see, photograph and fly on the piston era aircraft was as always just too much to turn down. All the operators at this airport are as always very friendly and accommodating, with ramp access granted when requested. Special thanks go to Kristine Cook at Buffalo Airways for spending part of her weekend guiding us around the Buffalo area at the airport and opening the Buffalo shop for the group.

Yellowknife Airport, located in the Northwest Territories and is home to Buffalo Airways, who have become known as ‘The Ice Pilots’ along with Air Tindi, Summit Air and a host of smaller operators. The RCAF also has a base here with using DHC Twin Otters and the occasional CC.138 Aurora.

Some of the Airlines that use Yellowknife are: Westjet, Air North, Air Canada Express, First Air and Canadian North.
