I used to live in Ladner and work at ZBB. When I was building hours I did so with a group there call 578148 bc ltd (or similar)
The organization is run through Dave Turnbull. There are three planes, two 172's (M?) and P and one Cherokee 140 with a 160 engine upgrade. All the planes are very well maintained by a AC mechanic named....hmmm
regardless, when i had an airshare there I got nothing but first-class service and had access to planes almost 100% of when I wanted them (last minute notice always) There are about 40 people with shares but only half are active and still it like having three of your personal planes. HTD is one of my favourite 172's i've ever flown and took it on my 300nm cross country to springbank in calgary.
Anyway contact Dave, I'll try to find the number, otherwise you can track them down through Alpha Aviation who run the airport. Ask for Casey and tell him Christos sent you on this goose chase for Dave and I'm sure he'll help
The one thing that will always stick out in my mind about Air Share was the quality of the maintenance. Those plane were always in great shape thanks to his hard work....What a contrast to the school planes I spent most of my time on.

The first rule of Air Share is....drakadoc wrote:Does anyone know why it is so hard to contact AirShare? Before I bought my airplane I had heard about them but nobody knew how to get a hold of them. Just curious.
