Stories of flying in coastal British Columbia and western Canada. Exploration off the grid in a region where mountains drop into the sea and lifestyles focus on self-reliance and a different sense of purpose. A book meant for pilots and pilots-at-heart. The geography of the Powell River area serves as the backdrop for stories of flying in remote areas of Canada where people are isolated from the bustle of the surrounding world. Recreation stories for the stout of heart with a desire for wilderness adventure. These regional stories share common threads that paint a unique picture of the Powell River area and its inhabitants. Numerous maps and photos accompany the stories, broken into 14 chapters. Non-pilots will love the chance to take the controls of a small airplane and explore coastal British Columbia.
