A total of seven planes and twelve people from KGA made the trip.

This morning (October 12) KGA had four Aircraft meet up at the monthly Delta Airpark breakfast. We were lucky enough to be greated with great weather and the regular group of smiling faces that make up the pilot group of Delta Air Park. For those of you that are interested in attending, Delta hosts this Breakfast every second tuesday of each month and drive in visits are welcome.
For those of you that didn’t know Sebastien ferried Ron and Debbies CH 601 from SK8 to YEG earlier this month. The trip took two days and a good portion was spent running the weather. Have a look at the pictures here and a couple of his short videos in the video section[slideshow id=2954361355566138293&w=426&h=320]
There will be a lunch time BBQ this Saturday at the Hastings strip. Be there for noon
Well after a slow start due to weather, KG managed to get a couple planes off the ground on Sunday. I would like to give a special thank you to James and Greg for bringing out their aircraft to this years Airshow. Here are a few shots of this years Airshow.
With my girlfriend working on the West Coast I thought the best way to get her home was by air. So with a little surprise side Picnic on a deserted beach, I brought her home. I hope you like the pix,
Gillis Bay fly-in at Texada Island
On July 13th 5 Airplanes from King George Airpark headed to Gillies Bay on Texada Island for their annual fly-in. As usual we were treated to wonderful hospitality from Doby and crew. With full stomachs from the pancake breakfast and great lunch BBQ, the attending crowd were treated to two shows from the Fraser Blues demonstration formation team. As for attendees there were a Nanchang, Beavers, a Murphy Moose, three L-19′s and the regular assortment of factory and homebuilt aircraft. CF-BUL made an appearance as well bringing back a flury of childhood memories.
Thanks Doby, we’ll be back next year.
