The 2020 Expedition is an ambitious multi-aircraft flight, departing from Burlington, flying over Niagara Falls, up the sandy coast of Lake Huron along the Bruce Peninsula, north to Sault Ste. Marie for an overnight stay, and a chance to visit the Canadian Bush Plane Museum.

The next day the squadron will fly over the Agawa Canyon, catching aerial views of the east shore of Lake Superior and the autumn colours of northern Ontario forests, with a stopover for lunch in Timmins and overnight in Sudbury.

On Friday, we will fly along the beautiful Ottawa and St. Lawrence rivers to historic Quebec City where we will stay for two nights.

The following day will bring a unique fly-out over the Saguenay River fjord and the spectacular gorges of the Parc National des Grands-Jardins. The last day is a return flight to Burlington.

The expedition will provide a unique fly over experience of Ontario and Quebec fall forest colours, and create vital awareness and raise $100,000 to fund 400 flights for low income patients who must travel far for the medical care they need. Please consider joining this expedition.
