The Bush Pilot's Monument in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, pays tribute to the courageous and skilled bush pilots who played an important role in the development of Canada's North. Yellowknife's most popular lookout rises high above Old Town, providing views over Great Slave Lake, Back Bay and the northern reaches of the city. The monument rests atop “The Rock” where the town’s original water tower once stood. The travel between communities and camps was long and dangerous. Bush planes were a vital resource for transporting supplies, food, medicine and people. This monument is dedicated to those pilots and engineers whose lives were lost as they flew in the Northwest Territories. There are two resting areas on the staircase for those that need them on the way up the steep climb. At the peak are two viewing platforms where many visitors take photos and gaze out on the beautiful scenery of Yellowknife.
