Marc Wheeler Posted December 11, 2016 Share Posted December 11, 2016 http://events.canadianxpress.ca/images/CXA_Dece_2016_FlyIn.jpg Often referred to as the sixth Great Lake, Georgian Bay features more than 30,000 islands and 2,000 kilometers of shoreline. Georgian Bay's beauty is serene. Windswept pines, majestic towering cliffs, endless beaches and clear blue water all create a one of a kind destination. Parry Sound, the largest natural harbour on Georgian Bay, was named by Captain Henry Bayfield after Sir William Edward Parry, the Arctic explorer. Bayfield surveyed the 30,000 islands in the early 19th Century. This is a staging point for trips not only to your cottage nearby, but also for countless exploration possibilities of the beautiful French River and Muskoka areas. The Parry Sound Area Municipal Airport (PSAMA) is located in Seguin Township in the District of Parry Sound. The PSAMA's runway is 4,000' with a 290' by 320' apron and medium-intensity airfield lighting. The airport has a float plane base located on the 4,000' long Robert's Lake connected to the airport via a private access road. The PSAMA is a popular re-fueling destination for Air Ambulance, Hydro One Helicopters, Ontario Provincial Police, and Search & Rescue.
