|Passing of Buffalo Airways legend Arnie Schreder|
Sad news for Buffalo Airways, northern aviation and fans of Ice Pilots NWT. Former Buffalo Chief Pilot Arnie Schreder passed away early on Saturday, May 5, 2012 after a battle with small cell lung cancer. The long-time northern pilot became internationally famous through his part on the History Television reality series.
History Television had put the full last episode of Season 3 of Ice Pilots up on the web in memory of Arnie, but that's since been taken down. You can find their memorial page here. And there are some full episodes available on line here.
Arnie was 69 years old. He had more than 37,000 hours flying time, and trained a great many pilots over his years with Buffalo.
A service was held May 10, 2012 in Winfield, BC. A memorial service was held at the Buffalo in Yellowknife on May 12, 2012. Fittingly, Arne's ashes were scattered over Back Bay, in a ceremony captured for the Ice Pilots NWT program.
