Thank you to @gregwayphotography for these incredible photos! Inside the helicopter - "We just changed the blades and it was during our first run after getting the work done. Just before flying to do some testing and adjusting everything for the helicopter to run smooth." Second photo - "In the process of hooking up the blades during a smoky sunset and bugs attacking you from everywhere." All of this in Kenora, Ontario
We've stocked our gift shop with enough shirts, hats, water bottles and other merch to see you through the summer season! 👀🧢👕

Good morning from our Canmore base! 🚁🌄
For a breathtaking view of the Three Sisters Peaks, let us take you by helicopter! 🚁 Did you know that this iconic trio of mountains was initially named The Three Nuns? Albert Rogers coined the name in 1883 after a storm left a heavy veil of snow on the northern face of all three peaks. They were renamed the Three Sisters in 1886 by George Dawson. In the traditional language of the Îyârhe Nakoda the peaks are also referred to as the three sisters. However, the name refers to a story of Ĩ-ktomnĩ, the old man or trickster, who would promise 'three sisters' in marriage whenever he was in trouble.
Thank you to Ed Meyer for this awesome shot, taken in the Kootenays earlier this month.

Here's some mountain trivia for you! 🧠⛰️ Check out the music video for Pink Floyd's 1987 hit 'Learning to Fly' and you'll see some familiar mountains in the background. The video was filmed on West Wind Ridge near Canmore, featuring Canadian actor Lawrence Bayne. Also features some great aerial shots... the kind of view only possible by helicopter! 🚁👀
