One of our most popular events from previous fly-ins has been the fly-out picnic hosted by the Northwest Territories Floatplane Association. The Association is planning to host this year's picnic on Saturday, July 11, 2015. Fly-in registrants are invited to fly out from Yellowknife to a nearby wilderness lake and enjoy an afternoon BBQ on the beach with our local members.
Association members are currently scouting potential picnic sites, looking for a long beach with plenty of float parking. Water levels in the area are low this year, so finding a suitable location is proving to be a challenge. Keep your fingers crossed that we can repeat this fun event!
The hottest show in Yellowknife is returning to the Midnight Sun Fly In on Friday, July 10, 2015. Our opening evening meet and great event will feature entertainment by Brrrlesque!
The Twin Otter has been a familiar aircraft in the Northwest Territories over the past 50 years due to its ability to provide reliable service under challenging northern conditions. Viking Air is the type certificate holder for the DHC-6 Twin Otter and is manufacturing new updated versions of this aircraft.
To honour the 50th anniversary of the Twin Otter, Viking Air is embarking on a celebration tour travelling to communities in Nunavut, Northwest Territories, and Yukon. The Yellowknife stop on the tour will coincide with the 2015 Midnight Sun Fly In and Viking Air is generously sponsoring our Saturday evening dinner and entertainment.
