Welcome to the Tsayta Aviation website

Tsayta is a long established British Columbia air carrier serving the tourism and resource sectors in northern British Columbia. Formed in 1983 at a base in Fort St. James, B.C., the company now operates piston and turbine engine aircraft from operational bases at Smithers and Dease Lake. We regularly operate aircraft as well from MacKenzie and Prince George airports.

Our destinations are anywhere in northern BC, the Yukon, and Alaska where an airplane can safely land and take off again. We have full capability to operate on land, on water, and on snow and ice. We move people and cargo. We support customers from major resource developments to government agencies to single passengers with a need to go somewhere quickly, or to see something from above.

Our core competence is to operate utility aircraft safely and efficiently in the vast and mostly unpopulated areas of the north of the province. We offer a range of aircraft with varying passenger and load capacities, ranging from the five passenger Cessna 206, through the Britten Norman Islander twin, and up to the revamped Texas Turbine De Havilland Otter.

Our services and our aircraft fleet are detailed in other pages of this site. We would be happy to be of service to anyone and any business that needs an airplane to get a job done in northern BC.
