A wonderful concept. As one who has spent countless hours in float based bush planes, prospecting and setting up isolated bush camps in the northern parts of Canada, I can see its merits. However it would never replace the "Pickup of the North" - the un-replaceable Beavers and Otters which handily accommodate 4x8 ft plywood and other camp necessities.
Although it is barely much more than a concept at this stage, It represents a new approach to flying northern Canada and will likely become the flying equivalent of the skidoo and jet ski for those who can afford it.

Looks suspiciously like the Icon A5! Neat! I wonder if that one will be $200k US as well?
