Ivan Robertson COLLECTION
home












Ivan Robertson of La Ronge was one of the last Bush Pilot/Aircraft Engineers that flew in the 1980's in Northern Saskatchewan. The following is a small part of Ivan's photo and slide collection documenting bush flying in those days.
Ivan and his brother Scott are avid canoers and have paddled most of the rivers and lakes which Ivan has flown over.
We would like to thank Ivan for sharing his collection with us.- Web builder.

    trappers' cabin - note the sand on the roof to hold down the water barrier of plastic, blue tarp or tar paper. Due to extreme costs of flying in building supplies, local materials are used exclusively. If the wind or water remove the sand, a few well placed shovel fulls of sand and the roof is good as new - no cost!
