Flights of­fered aboard clas­sic air­plane

The Southwest Booster - - NEWS -

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.”
