About

Tim Armstrong is a professional pilot based in Kenora, Ontario. He flies King Airs for Walsten Air, an air taxi company that is part of Discovery Air.

Since 2003, he has taken aerial photographs so that campers and cottage-owners on Lake of the Woods could monitor the conditions of the lake as it thaws. What began as a handful of emails to a few personal friends has grown rapidly since it became a blog.

Tim regrets that he has very limited flight time available, so he cannot take requests.
