I guess I should have provided a little more information so that I wouldn't upset Panama & probably a few others who chose not to speak so that the thread didn't get offtrack. In the 1970's the BC government was lobied to prevent aircraft from being permitted to land in Garabaldi Lake,many put their...

Re: protect your freedom to fly and land

I'd rather walk away from my 31 plus years of aircraft ownership than give copa any recognition at all & yes I was a member for over 22 years.

Re: Avro Arrow technical info

I was fortunate to meet a fellow who said he was to be one of the test pilots for the arrow but lost the coin flip for the first flight.After the cancellation he became a science teacher,had nice things to say about the aircraft.

Re: Avro Arrow technical info

Whether true or just another rumour will never be known but the reason for destroying everything was because both the British & the Americans wanted to buy the whole works so in order to not have to explain what could have been a very capable airframe someday that was cancelled by the conservatives,...

If you're making a statement about your unhappiness with the joke copa you should be easy to identify so the clowns there can recognize their former members.

If they want me to rejoin then they can send me an email & ask me,they still owe me a year of dues as they didn't give me a refund when I told them to cancel my membership.

Re: Landing a float plane in the rain

I would start with cleaning the windshield,perhaps with pledge so the rain doesn't stick.Glassy water approach is always the safest way when visibility is hampered.I've not had any trouble seeing when flying in the rain though as I keep the windshield clean & slippery.

Re: COPA Insurance ?

I've owned my 185 for over 30 years &every time I've asked copa for a quote for coverage on wheels,or floats their numbers were considerably higher than Park Insurance,now Air 1.After I became unhappy with the shenanigans at the top of copa I quit their little club,won't even miss them.
