A Note about Weather Conditions

We want you to have
a safe and enjoyable ride!

Call first if you have concerns about the weather.  (218) 682-2006

We fly when clouds are at least 1000 feet above the ground, winds are between 0 - 15 mph, and there is no precipitation.

Other considerations:

  • We will not fly if there are storms in the area.
  • Thunderstorms must be at least 25 miles away and moving away from our area.
  •  Excessive heat and humidity can lead to poor aircraft performance. Reduced passengers loads can sometimes improve performance.
  • Seaplanes generally do not fly at night. We'll need time to return to base after the last flight of the evening.

I look forward to flying with you,

John Justad
