Answers to Your Questions

WHAT IS YOUR PRICING POLICY?

For air charters we charge $10.95 plus gst per mile the aircraft flies to complete the trip.

For sight seeing tours we charge $1095.00 plus gst per hour the aircraft is flown on the tour.

An additional 15% is added to the total cost if you require an external load secured to the aircraft such as a canoe, boat, antlers or supplies.

HOW MANY PASSENGERS CAN YOU CARRY?

BC Yukon Air is able to fly up to 4 passengers per flight.

WHAT IS THE PAYLOAD LIMIT ON YOUR AIRCRAFT?

Our DHC-2 Beaver can carry a maximum payload of 1200 pounds. That weight is including the weight of passengers and cargo.

If your load is at the 1200lb limit there is a good chance that it will require more volume than there is space in the aircraft. It is a good idea to ensure your load is packed down in size as much as possible.

Due to flight safety and efficiency certain items are banned from flying:

- Lumber that is required to be secured to the outside of the aircraft

- Outboard motors larger than 10 horsepower
