FLYER Magazine Articles and Features


FLYER’S Feature Article On Ocean Air Floatplanes:

This article from the very poular European magazine Flyer was written by two newly rated (by Ocean Air of course!) Seaplane pilots upon their return to the UK. They came for a floatplane flying adventure and documented it really well showing the wonderful time they had, what they saw and learned.

Ray is a retired 747 Captain and Max is a Private Pilot. So, a career professional and his very good friend a lower hour pilot who shared their experience and perspectives.

Needless to say their adventure was more than they had hoped for!

FLYER’S Follow Up Article

A few months later a small follow up on other thoughts of their Canadian Float Flying Holiday.


Just a quick note to say thank you for an exhilarating week We both had an awesome time and it was a great pleasure to meet with you and fly YVA. The whole way you do business is professional and a credit to you. I will value the memories forever. We got back on time after a gruelling 9 hours and I go back to work today. Kind Regards

Emailing to thank you once again for an absolutely fabulous week of float flying. That’s what a flying holiday should be like! We still can’t quite believe the experience, and appreciate your’s and Bryan’s patience and encouragement with both of us. Good of you to arrange lovely weather too! I know we’ll be back! Best regards, fly safe. Cheers

Ocean Air, you came highly recommended by a past student while I was flying in Botswana. I am so glad that I came back to Canada to take your course. With all of the competition for flying jobs, this 50 hr seaplane course really helped me to be the bush pilot I always dreamed of being. I feel confident and safe and you helped me to secure a job back East. Thanks so much and you know I’ll be in touch!
