I put all my pictures of airplanes, which I took at the Berlin Aviation Museum, onto a separate website. Avioimpex.
What’s so good about the Expedition?, an aircraft made by Found Aviation.
I bought this plane because I wanted safety. To be safe, you need power, and the right features. I’m going to be talking a lot about “Mountain Flying” and the features I like.
On my return flight from BC this weekend, a thick hazy layer was just below me. I’m at 12,500 feet, which is about 500 feet above this peak, one of the highest on my flight path. They were quite interesting. (I was never in danger. It was a smooth flight, I was just above the hazy layer and could always see what was ahead of me, and the ghostly ground below.
Lets look at pictures taken from the air, August 2nd, 2015 evening.
While chatting with other pilots at the Boundary Bay airshow, discussing my plane, the Expedition E350 by Found aviation, people were interested in the STOL, Short Take-Off and Landing abilities. I was giving them my stories of landings, but today I stumbled onto some photographs to illustrate it.
Boundary Bay Airshow 2015, these are some of the really cooool planes on the ground.
At short notice, I flew Camrose to Vancouver last weekend, invited to display my airplane at the Boundary Bay Airshow. My Expedition E350 is Canadian-made, but there’s only a few of them in Canada. I think it was popular! A line up of people all day long, were taking pictures, posing in and in front of my plane.
Most of my photos will be posted later, but here’s a video of landing on Hudson Island, after a 2.5 hour flight around the Gulf island and Desolation Sound area.
Here’s the fly-over before landing. It’s a really nice view of the curve runway.
I took some photos of Deanna before she did some practice flying in GEXY.
I hoped my dad could come for this flight, but he was feeling poorly, so I flew alone, Camrose to the BC coast, met some folks, made a quick visit to Hudson Island, had a little get together there, then returned. (with fresh shrimp!)
Clouds were just above the mountaintops while flying west.
