Most airports don’t have landing or ramp fees, but Toronto Island, Hamilton, Sudbury, and a few other airports do, these fees will be added to cost of the flight.
Pilot waiting time, if you would like to fly somewhere and stay for a while, is free up to the total flight time, beyond that it is $40/hour.

Aerial photography flights – see details below
If you’re looking for an opportunity to take aerial photos of a particular area or photos for the purpose of selling farm photos or real estate we can take you on an aerial photography flight (see our pricing page).
We have an NDVI camera that will take photos showing vegetative health of your crops.
Parcel delivery and pick-up
We can pick up and deliver small parcels for you between most airports – $200/hour

Payment by cash, cheque, or e-transfer
We enjoy flying aerial photographers and we have developed a good system for tracking our flight paths, making it easier for the photographer to know exactly where we’ve flown. Our iPad navigation ensures we know where towers and other obstacles are to stay safe while following your desired route, which can be overlaid on our iPad map.
Rates & Conditions:
Aerial photographers often require very specific sky conditions, beyond what is needed for scenic flights, resulting in frequent flight cancellations and lost income for us when the weather is actually ideal for scenic flights. To ensure it makes financial sense for us to take photographers’ bookings (that have a high cancellation rate), we have implemented a stand-by/booking fee for aerial photographers:
As of Jan. 1, 2019 there is a $20/hour stand-by fee if you would like to book a time slot for us to hold open for you. If you book a time-slot and fly for the entire time booked the entire stand-by fee will be subtracted from the cost of your flight. If your flight is cancelled by us because the weather is not suitable for scenic flights you will be refunded the booking fee. Any time you have booked that is suitable flying weather but that you choose not to fly, your stand-by fee will be our payment for holding your time slot open.
Flying time is charged at our regular pricing (hourly discount for flights over 2 hours), minus any pre-paid stand-by fee for each hour.
A photographer books 11am-2pm (3 hours). The photographer pays $60 for the pilot and plane to be on stand-by and available during that time (we will not take other flight bookings during that time). If the photographer chooses to fly for 2.5 hours during his 3 hour booking he will be charged:
$500 (2.5 hours x $200/hour – the reduced rate for flights over 2 hours)
less $50 (2.5 hours x $20/hour stand-by fee)
