HA/Westcoast Air

I was in Canada a couple of years ago took the train from Toronto to Vancouver (winter time heaps of snow and never seen so many trees)
While in YVR I took a trip down to Victoria Island on HA/Westcoast Air on a DHC-3T the pilot invited me to the R/H seat and he had flown float planes for around 20 years the landing was so smooth on the return trip it was a DHC-6-200 and the Co-pilot had a non Canadian accent turned out to be a Kiwi and was the CP. I saw a lot of floating logs in the harbor and washed up on the shoreline of Stanley Park so I guess they are a hazard.

@BravoHotel: your not wrong. There's a ton of debris in the harbour i'm amazed there isn't a ton of incidents from both the aircraft and boats hitting something.

I'm still trying to weasel my way into the left on one of those beavers

Back at Manila today, taxiing past the local low cost carriers

Park up the aircraft

And discover that an engineer has a pair of pet goats

One of which has a PAIR of Kahunas!!

The tail on that ATR looks a little crooked. Is that normal?

Pianoman, where do the nosewheels on that boat of yours retract into?

Bloggsie, I was very impressed!

As for the wheels, the retract up, however the front nose wheels are always exposed and out of the water line!

Spectacular to look at, but the sort of stuff that gets people killed, promoting unsafe flying in LSA aircraft.

Why is it that drivers are apparently able to distinguish a rally driver's antics on TV from acceptable behaviour on the highway and yet showing anything risky in the aviation sphere is seen as a sure path to doom? I don't buy it.

Because almost every pilot thinks they are better than everyone else. therefor, anyone doing something outside their comfort zone is on a one way ticket to hell.


What would happen if a Jabiru was flown around a red bull air race course? OMG ! the stupidity! what would they say if they were told it was Matt Hall or Paul Bonholme flying it at the time?
