Bearskin Airlines began as a humble operation founded in July 17, 1963 by Otto Heglund, a pilot and free trader.
With hard work and dedication, Heglund's original fleet (consisting of a single Tiger Moth biplane) expanded.
By 1999, it had a fleet of thirty aircraft operate a variety of scheduled, chartered and contract services to the major cities of Northern Ontario and many smaller communities. Here we have the timetable issue April 24, 1983.
