The ‘Float Plane Experience" video!

May 31, 2010

Celes Davar cruising the lake

For those of you who have never been on a float plane, you can check out the video linked below for a real taste of what to expect.  For those of you who are flying up later this year, this video will get those juices flowing about your upcoming trip to Aikens!  It captures the experience of being in that plane, taking off in Silver Falls, and landing at the dock at Aikens. A big thank you to Celes Davar for putting this together.  Celes visited with us during the Rendez-Vous Canada trip in mid-May.  He and his wife Susan are the owners of "Earth Rhythms" - a leader in experiential tourism located in Riding Mountain National Park, Manitoba. You can watch it here: "A short video showing from inside the plane, the passenger experience of flying in a float plane - taking off and then landing at Aikens Lake northern boreal lodge in Manitoba. You'll see the pilot at the hand controls, the GPS unit, passengers taking photos, and the view from the window of the plane as we take off, travel about 1500 feet above ground for about 35 minutes, and then land. The sound of the engine is unmistakable - the Canadian Beaver."
