Is quality of life important to you?

Northern Ontario is Bear Country! Blessed with incredible natural beauty, offering superb four-season recreational opportunities. Opportunities exist wherever we fly!

For many families, the lake is their back yard. In the summer, you can be on the boat or on the golf course within minutes after leaving the hangar. Recreational outdoor activities in winter are just as good including snowmobile trails winding through spectacular landscapes, skating, ice fishing, snowshoeing and skiing.

Bear Country is a great place to live, work and raise a family!
