Hello there. Air Saguenay shoud be put on the list. That's one of the good places to make money. You can fly as much as you want when based in Schefferville. The boss sucks but he pays hard workers well.

Young Gary Richards at Tofino Air used to run a very decent operation. He even bought breakfast for every one. The best part was that he loved to play chess between flights. I learned a lot from him. I might add that I had about 12 000 hrs on floats by then.

Glen Tudhope of Tudhope Airways, Hudson Ontario, was the best float operator that I ever worked for. Good maintenance, good pay, excellent boss.
