Sightseeing tours

June 26-2020
Lake Country Airways of Orillia is hoping to put a Beaver up in Parry Sound this summer.  That would be the best place to launch a sight seeing trip to North Bay from. To cover the cost of positioning the aircraft, we'd need about 25 people signed up to fly in groups of 5.  The cost per person would be $120 + tax and that would be for a 30 minute trip.  Any interest should contact Ron Miller at 705 498 3133.
