Audio Excerpt

Annnnd here we are... we’ve finally ‘landed’ just 4 km south of Pilot But... haha no no I’m not being rude, it’s the actual genuine, honest to goodness name, I swear! 


Ok, ok you got me. Although it LOOKS like Pilot But, it’s actually pronounced Pilot Butte.


In the 1950s, it gained popularity as a commuting town for those working in Regina and has been growing ever since!

 So, what do you think the name ‘Pilot Butte’ means? 

Could it be;

A) Lookout Point

B) Community Hill

Or C)Beautiful City?

The answer is… A! The name comes from a flat topped hill that was used as a lookout for hunting buffalo. Pilot Butte has been a significant area throughout history as the Aboriginals used it as a lookout and signal point to find and hunt the ever important Buffalo.


Well, I hope you had a good time in Pilot But! … haha oh come on, just because that’s not really how to pronounce it doesn’t mean I’M not going to call it that!
