our fleet

Fly through history into the future

Our newly expanded seaplanes fleet includes two DHC-2 Beavers and a Cessna 180.

Under new ownership and expanding our seaplanes fleet.

 

Since the 1960s over 2000 pilots have completed their floatplane training on the Fraser River at Fort Langley (CAS4.)

In May, 2018, Fort Langley Air was purchased by local entrepreneur, Scott McIntosh. Since May, we have acquired a new Cessna 180, and two iconic De Havilland DCH-2 Beavers. We have completed a retrofit on each of these seaplanes that is sure to please pilots and passengers alike.
