Pilot Butte is a town located east of Regina, Saskatchewan between Highway 46 and the Trans-Canada Highway. Pilot Butte, meaning "Lookout Point", was chosen in 1883 as the name for the settlement. Pilot Butte is a residential community for Regina, appealing to those who prefer a more rural lifestyle. This upward trend in population bucks the general Saskatchewan trend of depopulation of rural areas. A violent storm hit the area on 26 August 1995, damaging most homes in the community. Pilot Butte now has reached a population over 2000 in the summer of 2013.
