What is your favorite kind of flying or place to fly to?
I love flying the RV-6 “ the imitutor” and learning basic aerobatics! Keeps you on your toes and can be challenging to fly, but so rewarding.
The cardinal is like a flying sofa and is always nice to cruise around in on longer flights or at night with friends. It’s also a good time builder compared to the RV.
I have yet to test the waters of bush flying and have never been in a STOL aircraft so that’s what I would like to experience next.
Overall just getting airborne is the best and my favorite airport thus far is Courtenay for lunch.
What is your favorite feature on the BCGA website?
I love that they do a survival shakedown and would love to attend one when I get the chance.
In a few words describe what the BCGA is to you:
A community of enthusiastic aviators in a truly beautiful province! We’re lucky and there is such a mix of ATC, AME, Bush Pilots, Commercial Pilots etc.
What other aviation organizations / clubs are you affiliated with?
None so far. Although I have a feeling that will be changing with my interest in aerobatics.
Motorcycling, Painting, Horseback riding, Hiking and overall adventures
