Leave the Wheels Behind and Discover the Freedom of Floats

At Lake Country Airways we specialize in Adventure Flying with floats. Here, you will learn in real-life conditions from high time charter floatplane pilots at our unique waterfront location. Uniquely situated on Lake St. Johns in the heart of Lake Country we're surrounded by hundreds of beautiful Ontario lakes and close to limitless wilderness locations.

We offer a basic float endorsement/seaplane rating with the Discover Float Flying Package. For further experience Advanced Float Training is available. And the 50-hour Bush Pilot Package is for those looking for extreme adventure and outstanding credentials. We also offer customized training packages to suit individual needs.

All initial training takes place on one of our Cessna 172s which is equipped with a 160 hp engine and Edo floats. Advanced training takes place on either or C172s or a Cessna 185.
