CNP3 (CNB5 in the water aerodrome sup) is your nearest aerodrome with water access for 100LL.

Where in MB? Type? Does your bird have a MoGas STC by chance?

Feel free to PM, happy to help!

I was raised in Pembroke and there was always float planes at Cranson Lake just over the river in PQ

45.822118, -76.992451 There are the co-ordinates. I suggest you contact the Pembroke City Airport and you likely can get a contact name. Cranson Lake was a water base for Wheeler/Northland back in the day. Saw my first Norseman there.

I took a look on Google Maps and there are aircraft in slips there.

There is also a public dock in Pembroke at the marina, right down town if you want to visit the city. Many lakes with great sand beaches -- if you have plans for Algonquin Park I would check first to where you can land. At one time there was a water base at Achray but MNR have likely shut it down > I believe there is a camping area there now. great trip, have fun.

Should be nice by then, its a really nice area I have enjoyed my time here. I may be gone by then, I am waiting to start my flight training. I spend a lot of time on the beach with my little guy and there is a float plane that flies over the beach towards Quebec, it makes multiple trips all the time but honestly not sure where it lands. maybe the marina?

As far as I am tracking though there is no more landing in Algonquin park, I was also told there is little they can do about it one of the rangers I was talking to basically said by the time they even get close to the plane its leaving or gone.
