Leg 1 - Minneapolis to Ottawa on 21st April 2016

Our flight plan took us up over the Great Lakes and down towards Ottawa just to the North of Toronto with a flight time of 4 hours and 56 minutes to complete the 890 miles.

The great folks at Wipaire who manufactured and fitted the new 8750 floats saw us off in style in the early morning.

After departure from South St. Paul Municipal Airport we very quickly passed over the Mississippi River before climbing out over Minnesota.

Great weather and no problems were the highlights on this sector - just the way we like it.

Our approach towards Ottawa airport took us over the City and also over the St Lawrence - from one great waterway to another !!!

Hope you enjoy the images below.

NEXT - onwards to Goose Bay, Labrador
