Need Advise From Ontario

Recommended Posts

If you want to miss Winnipeg completely, you can go Dryden to Lac Du Bonnet (CYAX), just have to call provincial helicopters there first, and ask if they'll sell ya some Jet A/B or whatever they have in their tanks.


They'll even take you to lunch and perhaps some of their junior pilots will clean your windows for ya?


Their number is 1-888-288-0701. I know that they do not normally sell fuel, but they might if you ask nicely. Good people.





Thanks, Winnie,


I will bypass Winnipeg. Last time (2005) made it to Portage for the night and this was fine- just did a big detour to the south from Dryden or Kenora. Weather was too bad to deal with Winnipeg area anyhow.

Provincial guys worked out of our base in early 03 or 04 fire season with an old 204 and offered us any help any time in the future. Nice guys. Sold them lots of fuel.


Should be heading west march 21 or 28 week. Hope the weather is good. Have to figure out this Garmin 496 thing so we don't get lost in the flatland.
