Midnight Sun Challenge 2010 -> Northern Wilderness Tour 2011- Aircraft Adventure 2012 Print E-mail

Lovelace Aviation AdventureIn the summer of 2009, John Lovelace of "Wings Over Canada" fame, undertook a major flight project to celebrate the Century of Flight.  The Cross Canada Century Flight saw 100 small planes to make the long coast to coast trip.

The success of the Cross Canada Century Flight has led to the creation of the Century Flight Club.  They're planning annual general aviation flight events.  In 2010, the Midnight Sun Challenge saw 100 small planes travel to Whitehorse, the capital city of Canada's Yukon territoryYukon is a great place to visit, with the colourful history of the Gold Rush, strong aboriginal cultures, and miles and miles and miles of beautiful scenery.

The 2011 flight was called the Canadian Wilderness tour, and saw Lovelace and company head to LaRonge, in northern Saskatchewan

For 2012, they visited Yellowknife, in the Northwest Territories.  More information is available on their Century of Flight Facebook page, or in this brochure.

2013 will see the Lovelace group head east, to the Maritimes.
