Québec is a huge territory where economic facts of life are far different in one region to the next.
Air transportation is definitely a means to accessibility, but well-designed installations are a must in order to provide the expected services. We have established such well-designed installations in three different areas
In the Laurentians at Riviere-Rouge
Where our Head Office has been since 1976, in addition to our Operations Control Station and Reservation Centre. Aircraft servicing and maintenance is also done at the main base in Riviere-Rouge, which is the departure point for one of our five outfitters operating south of the 49th parallel.
In Mauricie, our seaplane base in Parent allows us to provide express service. Because Parent is close to major hunting and fishing destinations, many enthusiasts start-off from there. Our seaplanes are also often used for aeromedical evacuation to major medical centres or to fly forest firefighters.
On James Bay territory…
On James Bay territory, LG-4 was chosen as an all-round fly-out base located at kilometre 286. We provide lodging, food, unleaded gas, diesel, avgas, lubricants, plus a full-range of services. The staff is super courteous and concerned in lending a helping hand, words with true meaning in these remote regions.
LG-4 is our tie point with the Great North. It is from this base that seaplanes take to the air to reach Cargair Outfitters’ hunting and fishing territory. We also provide transportation for independent groups of fishermen and canoers looking for adventure on crystal-clear rivers.
Several mining companies have also picked our LG-4 base to establish their Operations Control Centre and fly-out station to their exploration sites. We have ultra-modern communications, huge parking and storage areas with suitable loading and unloading equipment.
