Anything else you would like to share with your fellow members:
Most of my flying is from Grand Forks to various places ranging from the central BC coast to Alberta. I fly often to Anahim Lake and out to several small hydro plants serving communities on the west coast. I also work on several plants in the Robson Valley near McBride and Valemount.
Have had two unrelated engine failures, one resulting in a crash and one with a successful landing at Revelstoke, where the plane received a nicely overhauled engine from Ken Vike of VikeAeromotive in Kamloops.
