Air Tindi is an airline company based in Yellowknife offering scheduled flights to a number of NWT communities. We are able to assist our customers whether it be a city tour to getting paddlers to their dream destination to ground breaking exploration to crew transfers only to name a few. If you have a transportation need we are here to accomodate a solution.
If you are thinking of going on the paddling adventure of a lifetime, let us be a part of your journey to get you there. Either in our DeHavilland Twin Otter(s) or Cessna Caravan aircraft, our pilots have the knowledge of Canada’s North and its many amazing river and lake systems to ensure your drop off and pickup will be as effortless as possible, whether that be near or far. We can accommodate groups of any size with our multiple float equipped and offstrip aircraft to best suite your trip needs. We are able to accommodate our paddling customers by flying canoes, pack boats (folding canoes), kayaks, rafts, and inflatable’s, internally or externally on our aircraft. If you are travelling to Yellowknife to start your journey, you can arrange to have your supplies shipped to Air Tindi’s extensive facilities beforehand to streamline your in town preparation.
We are able to fly up to 2 nestled canoes on the outside of our very economical C208 Caravan aircraft, getting you to and/or from some of the best paddling locations in the world. This allows for the bulky canoes to be outside of the aircraft allowing adequate space for gear inside and an excellent view out of the large windows. In order to haul 2 canoes on the outside of our aircraft a smaller canoe must be nestled inside the larger canoe and secured to the aircraft as a unit. To do this the larger canoes internal hardware must be removed to accommodate the nesting.
