McMurray Aviation thrives with experience in the remote wilderness.

Accessing off-the-grid locations where there is no road access. Our typical runways are made out of grass, gravel/sand, ice or water. Whether the flight is to take travellers to fishing/hunting lodges, northern cities or flying groceries and necessities for work camps, a flight with us will be an experience you will never forget.

Our Location

Our base operation is on the north side of the runway of the Fort McMurray Airport. The main terminal is located on the south and is quite the distance to travel by foot. Taxi services can be caught just outside departures of the south terminal to our facility for a $15 fare. Alternatively, you can call our main line (780) 791-2182 and if someone is available we can send our van over to pick you up.

Activities such as horseshoes, cribbage, darts and quiet reading make your stay more enjoyable as you have the chance to relax and unwind in pristine wilderness and tranquility.
