Flights offered aboard classic airplane
Mike Campbell from Great Circle Airways is offering a chance to see the prairie landscape from the skies aboard a 1957 DeHavilland Beaver and support TeleMiracle at the same time.
Campbell is making a $5 donation in support of TeleMiracle 34 for each flight booked over the coming weeks. He is currently booking flights as a unique Christmas present, giving people a chance to see the landscape from the air between Christmas and New Year’s.
For some flying enthusiasts, the opportunity to fly aboard the legendary DeHavilland Beaver is worth the price of the flight alone.
“For some it’s just getting up in the air and seeing the local sights from the air,” Campbell explained. “But for others it’s the 1957 DeHavilland Beaver. We get a lot of aviation enthusiasts as well that don’t ever get an opportunity to see or go for a ride in one. Out in Maple Creek I think I had three or four people that have their own airplanes that paid to go for an airplane ride just to go for a ride in a classic airplane because you don’t see those everyday.”
His flights have taken passengers over wind turbines, Sask Landing, Fort Walsh, the Sand Hills and other familiar landmarks.
“Everybody thinks it’s great. I ask every single plane-load of people “what did you think of that?” and they all say it was too short. They all want to go longer and basically everyone is impressed with the view.”
