Last time I was Inuvik, I believe Olaf had a son that was flying as well. Too bad he's retired, he was one of the best pilots I've flown with.
I've experienced the landing in one place with the gear going elsewhere too. They couldn't get all my gear on the plane to Inuvik... too many supplies being sent up so my gear came the next day but at least it arrived. Had to shuffle my plans and do the bush flight a day later but as it turned out I couldn't have flown on the day I'd planned anyway as there were bush fires in the area and all the planes had been pressed into service fighting fires.
I did a trip once that had my fly commercial into Vancouver and then take a shuttle flight to my final destination. I got to where I wanted but my gear continued on the plane to Japan. Didn't get it back for several days.

Thanks for your replies.
I wanted to fly out of Inuvik if possible. I want to drive to Inuvik as the last time up North I ended up in Yellowknife and 1/2 of my gear in Vancouver.
I did not contact Olaf because I was told he has retired from flying. I will get in touch with him anyways.
