A fun trip for Christmas

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 Comments off

To visit my son’s family in Maple Ridge I plan to fly CYWH (Victoria Harbour, modelled in VictoriaPlus) to CAJ8 (Pitt Meadows, modelled in VancouverPlus, adjacent to CYPK) with Harbour Air.

On floatplanes previously I’ve flown CYWH to CAM9 (Vancouver Sea Island), CYHC (Vancouver Harbour) and CAE5 (Whistler), as well as a tour out of Ketchikan (5KE)

It looks like this may take years to resolve: Floatplane terminal still up in the air.

The Helijet folks at Camel Point Public Heliport (CBF7) in Victoria were kind enough to let me airside to take a few pics.  First is the S-76, then the venerable S-61 in its distinctive black and white livery. These images are larger than what I usually post, so I’ve provided links.
