Aircraft Charter to Sable Island

Aerial view We at Sable Aviation feel privileged to provide fixed-wing aircraft charter service to Sable Island, a delicate crescent of sand located 300 km south-east of Halifax, NS. Since there is no airstrip on the island, our BN-2A Britten Norman Islander aircraft lands on the sandy expanse of the island's south beach.

Sable Island is a National Park Reserve, so Parks Canada has sole control over approving and scheduling visitor flights, whether by airplane, helicopter or boat. To limit the number of visitors and protect Sable's delicate ecology, only one visitor flight per week is approved, and only on the week-end, to avoid interfering with Station Operations. If you wish to visit Sable, you have two options - to organize a charter of the aircraft yourself, or buy a single seat on a flight that we have organized.

If you decide to go with the option of chartering the aircraft, you will need to request a visitation date from Parks Canada by filling out a Visitor Registration Form. To submit your request, please go to the Parks Canada web site.

Horse beside Sable Station After Parks has assigned you a visitation date, they will inform us of your booking. We would appreciate an e-mail from you with your day-of-flight contact information, so that we can reach you in the event of any flight delays. We also need to know the number of people in your group and your method of payment.

Occasionally, individuals are looking for others with whom they can share a flight. If this is of interest to you, check out the Facebook group Sable Island Aircraft Charter.

Whether you wish to buy a seat or charter the whole aircraft, you should read the Parks Canada Visitor Information Guide. Also, please check out our FAQ page for answers to all your questions on chartering or buying a single seat, including cost.
