Cast your eyes and camera upon unbelievable scenic beauty - from stunning mountains, glaciers and glacier fed lakes, to pristine raw wilderness - this is where dreams are made.
Air tours and charters to remote locations catering to photographers, extreme sports enthusiasts, and tourists are areas in which White Saddle Air excels. We also provide support to industry such as mining exploration, forestry, firefighting, search and rescue/ ambulance services as well as on location filming.
Since 1975, White Saddle Air has been flying alpine exploring groups into several mountain ranges in the Coast Range including the well known Mount Waddington Range. Mount Waddington is a short flight away from our base and can be seen minutes after departure. Movies such as Seven Years in Tibet and K2 were filmed in this area.
