Bert Rose, Cam McGregor and Patrick Nagle are private pilots living in Iqaluit, Nunavut. From 1993 to 2010, we owned a Cessna 172, based here in Iqaluit. We no longer own the plane, but we maintain an interest in general aviation in Nunavut. And we're always happy to hear from pilots planning to fly small planes up this way.
Cam originally coined the name Polar Pilots back in 1993, when our Cessna 172 was first moved up to Iqaluit from Alberta.
Bert set up the original Polar Pilots website a few years later. And thanks to the Wayback Machine,you can also view an archive of the 2nd Polar Pilots website, from September 1, 2007, just for old times' sake!
Since 1993, about a dozen private pilots have been part of the Polar Pilots group. Some have gone on to fly commercially, others continue to enjoy flying as a hobby.
Over the years, we've also met dozens of pilots passing through Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada from all over the world.
We'd love to hear about your arctic flying adventure, past or future. And we'd be happy to provide what information we can to help make your trip to Canada's Eastern Arctic successful.
