My team and I would like to welcome everyone. I apologize for the late posting, but the purchase of Chimo Air and Chimo Lodge and Outposts Limited was closed only a few weeks prior to opening weekend. While little has changed, I am sure many can still appreciate the organization and time required to merge two airlines into one, in-time to accept guests on opening day. A smooth transition was our primary focus.

We are pleased to announce that Superior Airways has now successfully been moving groups through our float base for three weeks. Feedback received has been excellent, and we look forward to receiving your group upon arrival. Superior Airways Limited ( has their float operations based out of 68 Howey Street (see map below). Their contact number to confirm departure times is 807-727-3245. Departure times can be confirmed 24-hours prior to departure, as it may vary depending on the availability of aircraft. Superior Airways will service Chimo Lodge and Outposts with a combined fleet of (2) Turbine Otters, (1) Piston Otter, (2) Cessna 208 Caravans, and a Beaver. As such, weather permitting, we can move you through the checkin process and off to your camps quickly.

With regard to Chimo Lodge and Outposts Limited, we have strived to make as little change as possible. We recognized quickly that Peter and Elizabeth had built a great box already!

We are however offering groups the option of paying prior to departure, to assist in expediting your return travel home. Dave and Wendy continue as camp managers and Daniel Wesolowski and my team will continue the proud tradition of service and quality that Peter and Elizabeth worked so hard to provide. Daniel brings over twenty-five years experience with the Chimo properties with him, and continue to closely consult with Peter and Elizabeth. We look forward to welcoming your group to the trip of a lifetime.

Safe Travels!
