Meet Ken & Michael Coté
If you think Prince Rupert scenery is spectacular from the ground, you should see it from the air. Pilots Ken and Michael Coté never get tired of the views when they fly over the region. From the ocean to the mountains and the forest and land that lies in between, flying gives the father/son duo a different perspective on daily living than most people who live here get.
Ken has been flying and maintaining aircraft for more than four decades. It is in his blood. He also has a long-standing passion for business, so to be able to combine both into a career is a real-life dream for Ken. He started Ocean Pacific Air in 1986 and has flown hundreds of passengers during those years. His son Michael has been flying for 15 years and recently joined his father at Ocean Pacific Air as the business continues to grow. Some of their clients trying to get from point A to point B, while others have been tourists or locals wanting to see the region with a bird’s-eye view.
Ken has deep roots in Prince Rupert. He has lived here longer than he has been flying. Michael was born and raised in Prince Rupert and is now raising a family of his own in the community. Both men are active in community life and appreciate that Prince Rupert has a friendly, family feel to it. The sense of community along with the amazing scenery make it a great place to live.
Dependable. Local. Family-Owned.
You’ll get a view of Prince Rupert and the North Coast unlike any other when you charter a flight with Ocean Pacific Air.

Safety and customer service are the top priority with Ocean Pacific Air, a family-owned-and-operated company that has existed in the region since 1986. Ocean Pacific Air charters are available for sight-seeing tours or transportation for both private and business customers.
