Happy 60th! COPA celebrates 60 years in 2012 This year the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association turns 60 years old, so we will be doing some special celebrating in 2012. The idea to form COPA was born in April, 1952. Laurentian Air Services pilot John Bogie was having lunch in the Ottawa Flying Club lounge with Spartan Air Services pilot Bill Peppler and Paul Saunders when Ottawa pilot Margaret Carson came storming in and declared that something had to be done about the way small aircraft owners and operators were being mistreated by the government. At the time no one was looking after the small operators and individual aircraft owners in Canada. One of the issues that sparked Carson’s initiative was the application of highway tax on aviation gas. As a result of that informal discussion, interested local Ottawa pilots chipped in $5 each to pay for printing and mailing of notices. An organization meeting was held on Friday, Dec. 12, l952, at 1:30 p.m. in the Ottawa Flying Club lounge. Bogie acted as chairman of the meeting and Carson acted as secretary. From those humble beginnings COPA grew to be the largest aviation association in Canada. To mark this 60th milestone we will publish a feature on the history of COPA in the April COPA Flight, celebrate the 60th anniversary at the COPA National Flyin/AGM in June, offer special commemorative items from the COPA Collection and we will be asking you, the members, what you think about COPA in a 2012 survey. Happy New Year and Happy Birthday! • see French translation on page 4

COPA 2012 survey We want to know what you think COPA will be conducting a survey of its members in January 2012. The survey is to make sure that the association serves its members as best as possible. This is done by asking members for their opinions about aviation issues, the services COPA provides and also by collecting demographic data which enables COPA to better understand who its members are. The last COPA membership survey was carried out in 2007 and the plan at that time was to follow up with another one five years later to see what has changed and to get new information on what members think about COPA and aviation issues. As a result of the feedback we received from our survey in 2007, we have made significant improvements to our services. Here are three of these improvements: 1. Since 95% of COPA members indicated that they had internet access and more than half of those who access COPA’s website had indicated the need for the COPA website to be reorganized and improved, the new COPA website went live in June 2009. 2. COPA Flights (local chapters) scored high under the membership benefits question and so we restructured the concept and rekindled the enthusiasm in COPA Flights. Since then, 30 new COPA Flights were formed, over 60 Flights have reactivated their Flight status and local events have grown significantly. 3. COPA members manifested the importance of attracting youth to aviation, so COPA launched its own COPA For Kids Aviation program in February 2010. The 2012 COPA survey will be conducted by an experienced consultant, Dr. Keith Christopher, from KC Surveys. Once all the completed surveys are returned he will analyze the data received and prepare a report highlighting recommendations for COPA. The 2012 survey will be done by two methods. A se-

COPA FLIGHT

JANUARY 2012

Neighbourhood Watch 10 years later President’s W corner

lot of air has passed over the wings of GA aircraft since 9/11 and that is a good thing considering how our freedom was so quickly taken away from us on that fateful day. Common sense eventually prevailed and we were permitted to fly again. Although no terrorist threat using a GA aircraft has occurred in Canada since then, it does not mean that we can let down our guard, if for no other reason than to calm the fears of non-aviators and government officials who feel the need to put more security measures in place than already exist. At this 10-year point it helps to emphasize where this issue has gone and where it will likely go as well as refresh ourselves on measures we should continue to employ. In my COPA Flight article in January 2002 (also reprinted in Transport Canada’s Aviation Safety Letter http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/publications/tp185-3-02-menu-3707.htm ), I introduced the concept of a neighbourhood watch for aircraft and airports that consists of common sense measures that everyone involved in GA should be incorporating into our daily activities at airports. They include control of ignition keys, better supervision of students, sign-out procedures, establishing positive identification of all renters and students, having parents or guardians co-sign for teen students before they take flying lessons, improved securing of unattended aircraft, placing prominent signs near areas of public access warning against tampering with or unauthorized use of aircraft, posting emergency telephone numbers so that people may report suspicious activity such as transient aircraft with unusual or unauthorized modifications, persons loitering for extended periods in the vicinity of parked aircraft or in pilot lounges, pilots who appear to be under the control of another person, persons wishing to rent aircraft without presenting proper credentials or identification, persons who present apparently valid credentials but who do not display a corresponding level of aviation knowledge, any pilot who makes threats or statements inconsistent with normal uses or aircraft or events or circumstances that

do not fit the pattern of lawful, normal activity at an airport. All of these recommendations from 2002 remain relevant today. The security regulatory effort has been concentrated on airlines and their passengers and more recently on cargo and other commercial operations. COPA has been involved in virtually all regulatory meetings and on occasions when GA has been brought up for discussion, we have reminded proponents of increasing security for our sector that the nature of our sector is such that it would be very difficult if not impossible to impose airline-like measures on our sector. A more practical approach involving awareness, education and voluntary measures is the way to go. GA security enhancements have already occurred in these past 10 years. The first and perhaps most onerous was the introduction of no-fly zones around significant events such as G8, G20, Olympics and dignitary visitors and permanent no-fly zones are in place around the Parliament buildings and Governor General’s residence in Ottawa. There is a warning in the Aeronautical Information Manual http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/publications/tp14371-rac-2-0-2599.htm#2-9-3 that circling nuclear power installations may result in interception. Our licences have transitioned to temper resident photo ID passport-like booklets. Access to sterile areas in and around terminal buildings has become more difficult for our sector and security measures for accessing GA ramp areas at airports have been increased at all airports. There have been a few security incidents in the past 10 years, such as the mentally ill person in Thunder Bay who stole a 172 and flew to the U.S. expecting to be shot down and incursions into restricted airspace because of pilot error, but the use of small aircraft as a terrorist weapon has not occurred in Canada. So, do we need additional measures? That has been a matter of debate in recent months as Transport Canada’s attention has finally turned their attention to GA with such statements as contained in the CATSA website www.tc.gc.ca/eng/aviationsecurity/page-189.htm .

According to classified sources of information, we are told that GA is still on the minds of terrorists so Transport Canada feels the need to study our sector further. Through COPA’s efforts over the years, the government is at least sensitive to the difficulty in enhancing security measures as reflected in this statement from the CATSA site: “Transport Canada is continuing to examine what oversight and measures are needed to appropriately address the risk within general aviation and FBO operations, working with the general aviation community. At the same time, Transport Canada acknowledges that any regulation of the general aviation sector will need to be appropriate to the level of risk, while also ensuring that the economic viability of the industry and comparability to our international partners is maintained.” The key word here is “risk” and that has become the focus of the GA Security Working Group on which COPA participates. The group is working its way through assessing the risk and developing mitigation measures that achieves not only enhanced security but also recognizes the need to make them practical, affordable and not out of line with other nations.

eaucoup d’air a passé au dessus des ailes de l’aviation générale depuis les évènements du 11 septembre 2002 et c’est une bonne chose, considérant que notre liberté nous a été enlevée si rapidement lors de cette journée fatale. Le sens commun a éventuellement prévalu et on nous a permis de voler à nouveau. Même si aucune menace terroriste utilisant des avions d’aviation générale (AG) n’est survenu au Canada depuis cette date, ceci ne veut pas dire que nous pouvons baisser notre garde, même si la raison n’est que pour calmer les peurs des non aviateurs et des officiels du gouvernement qui sentent le besoin de mettre plus de mesures de

As we work our way through the risk process, it is very important that we all remain vigilant. A security threat, perceived or real, involving a GA aircraft would not help our cause at all. It is far too easy to knee-jerk in response to an event, resulting in significant and permanent restrictions or prohibitions to our freedom to fly. The best thing we all can do is to continue to employ the neighbourhood watch program that COPA suggested in 2002. If you don’t think you need to do anything, just think back to September 2001 when our freedom to fly was suddenly and completely taken away. It returned gradually but to this day has not entirely returned to pre-9/11 levels. It can happen again, either through a gradual instruction of measures or suddenly in response to a real or perceived threat.

COPA FLIGHT

JANUARY 2012

Some changes to COPA For Kids 2012 program Since 2009 COPA Flights across Canada have introduced over 6,000 Young Aviators to flying under the COPA For Kids Aviation program www.copaforkids.org and the enthusiasm keeps on growing. We are pleased to announce that the new COPA Guide to COPA For Kids 5th Edition will be available on Jan. 1, 2012, at which time a few changes will occur. First and foremost, COPA welcomes our new COPA For Kids sponsor, Ironshore, who is one of the fastest growing companies in the insurance industry and was recently named #2 Top New Product Pacesetter by Ad-

visen for their innovation in the marketplace. Ironshore is also the lead Underwriter for COPA’s VIP Aviation Insurance program http://www.magnesaviation.com/copa/ . The minimum age has been raised to 8 from 7 to be consistent with our previous program and in response to suggestions from several Flights. Of course, this does not prevent members from introducing anyone to flying, no matter what their age, but to be eligible for COPA’s liability insurance coverage while flying as part

of an organized event under the COPA For Kids Aviation Program the Young Aviators must be between 8 and 17 years of age. All brochures (waiver/registrations) and certificates must be replaced by the 2012 versions. You can order new brochures and certificates by sending an email to copaforkids@copanational.org or available online in January 2012 at http://www.copaforkids.org/content/index.cfm?page=Pilots

Quelques changements au programme COPA pour enfants 2012 Depuis 2009, les escadrilles COPA à travers le Canada ont introduit plus de 6,000 jeunes aviateurs au vol sous l’égide du Programme COPA pour enfants, www.copaforkids.org, et l’enthousiasme continue à monter. Nous sommes heureux d’annoncer que le nouveau Guide COPA du Programme COPA pour enfants, 5ième édition, sera disponible le 1er janvier 2012, moment auquel quelques changements surviendront. Premièrement et avant tout, la COPA souhaite la bienvenue à

notre nouveau commanditaire du Programme COPA pour enfants, Ironshore, une des compagnies les plus florissantes dans l’industrie de l’assurance et récemment nommée la deuxième compagnie la plus innovatrice par Advisen pour leurs innovations dans le marché. Ironshore est aussi l’assureur principal du Programme d’assurance aviation VIP de la COPA, voir le site suivant: http://www.magnesaviation.com/copa/ L’âge minimum a été augmenté de 7 à 8 ans pour être consistant avec notre

Surveillance du voisinage sens que tout le monde impliqué en AG devrait incorporer dans leurs activités de tous les jours dans les aéroports. Elles incluent un contrôle des clés de démarrage, une meilleure supervision des étudiants, des procédures d’assignation des avions, l’établissement d’une identification positive de tous les locataires et des étudiants, la signature des parents ou des gardiens pour les jeunes étudiants avant qu’ils débutent leurs leçons de vol, une sécurité améliorée des avions laissés sur le tarmac, des affiches placées de façon proéminente près des secteurs d’accès public avertissant des dangers de jouer avec les avions ou d’utiliser les avions sans permission, l’affichage des numéros de téléphone d’urgence afin que les gens puissent rapporter toute activité suspecte tel qu’un avion en transit avec des modifications inhabituelles on non autorisées, des personnes qui flânent pendant de longues périodes aux alentours d’avions stationnés ou dans les salons des pilotes, des pilotes qui semblent être sous le contrôle d’une autre personne, des personnes qui veulent louer un avion sans présenter leur identification ou leurs qualifications, des gens qui présentent des qualifications apparemment valides mais qui ne démontrent pas un niveau correspondant de connaissances aéronautiques, tout pilote qui fait des menaces ou des déclarations inconsistantes par rapport à des utilisations normales ou un avion ou des évènements ou des circonstances qui ne correspondent pas au modèle d’activité légal ou normal à un aéroport. Toutes ces recommandations de 2002 demeurent encore appropriées aujourd’hui. L’effort de sécurité règlementaire a été concentré sur les lignes aériennes et leurs passagers et plus récemment sur le cargo et autres opérations commerciales. La COPA a été impliquée dans virtuellement toutes les réunions régulatrices et dans les occasions où l’AG a été mise sur la table pour fins de discussions, nous avons rappelé aux promoteurs d’une sécurité accrue pour notre secteur que la nature de notre secteur est telle qu’il serait très difficile sinon impossible d’imposer des mesures comme celles des lignes aériennes à notre secteur. Une approche plus pratique impliquant de la conscientisation, de l’éducation et des mesures volontaires était la façon de procéder. Des améliorations à la sécurité en AG ont déjà pris place durant les 10 dernières années. La première et peutêtre la plus onéreuse a été l’introduction de zones interdites de vol autour d’évènements significatifs tels que le G8, le G20, les Olympiques et dignitaires visiteurs et des zones interdites de vol sont en place autour des édifices du Parlement et de la Résidence du Gouverneur Général à Ottawa. Il existe un avertissement dans le Manuel d’information aéronautique (voir http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/publications/tp14371-rac-2-0-2599.htm#2-9-3 ) à l’effet que le fait de voler autour d’installations nucléaires peut résulter en une interception. Nos licences ont fait la transition vers des livrets de type passeport à l’épreuve des faussaires avec des identifications photo. L’accès aux régions stériles à l’intérieur et autour des bâtiments terminaux est devenu plus difficile pour notre secteur et les mesures de sécurité pour accéder aux aires de stationnement des avions d’AG ont été augmen-

programme précédent et en réponse aux suggestions de plusieurs escadrilles. Bien sûr, ceci n’empêche pas les membres d’introduire quiconque au vol, peu importe leur âge, mais pour être éligible au Programme d’assurance responsabilité de la COPA, lorsque faisant partie d’un vol organisé à l’intérieur du Programme aviation COPA pour enfants, les jeunes aviateurs doivent être entre 8 et 17 ans d’âge.

tées dans tous les aéroports. Il y a eu quelques incidents de sécurité durant les dernières 10 années, tel que le malade mental à Thunder Bay qui a volé un Cessna 172 et qui a volé aux États-Unis tout en s’attendant qu’il serait descendu et des incursions en espace aérien restreint à cause d’erreur du pilote, mais l’utilisation de petits avions comme arme terroriste n’est pas survenu au Canada. Donc, avons-nous besoin de mesures additionnelles? Ceci est devenu un sujet de débat durant les derniers mois lorsque l’attention de Transports Canada s’est finalement tourné vers l’AG avec des déclarations telles que celles contenues sur le site internet de l’Administration canadienne de la sûreté du transport aérien (ACSTA), voir www.tc.gc.ca/eng/aviationsecurity/page-189.htm . Selon des sources d’information classifiée, on nous dit que l’AG est toujours dans l’esprit des terroristes et donc Transports Canada sent le besoin d’étudier notre secteur plus à fond. À travers les efforts de la COPA au cours des années, le gouvernement est au moins sensibilisé à la difficulté d’augmenter les mesures de sécurité tel que reflété dans cette déclaration provenant du site internet de l’ACSTA: «Transports Canada continue d’examiner quelles seraient les mesures de surveillance et autres mesures qui seraient nécessaires pour bien traiter les risques des opérations de l’aviation générale et des services aéronautiques aux aéroports, en collaboration avec le milieu de l’aviation générale. Transports Canada reconnaît également que toute réglementation du secteur de l’aviation générale devra correspondre au niveau du risque, tout en veillant à maintenir la viabilité financière de l’industrie et un contexte comparable à celui de nos partenaires internationaux.» Le mot clé ici est “risque” et ceci est devenu le centre d’intérêt d’un groupe de travail sur la sécurité en AG auquel la COPA participe. Le groupe travaille présentement à évaluer le risque et à développer des mesures de mitigation qui permet non seulement une sécurité accrue mais aussi qui reconnaît le besoin de les rendre pratiques, économiques et non hors ligne avec les autres nations. À mesure que nous progressons avec le processus d’analyse de risque, il est très important que nous demeurions tous vigilants. Une menace à la sécurité, perçue ou réelle, impliquant un avion d’AG n’aiderait pas du tout notre cause. Il est beaucoup trop facile d’avoir une réaction exagérée en réponse à un évènement, résultant en des restrictions significatives et permanentes ou des prohibitions à notre liberté de voler. La meilleure chose que nous pouvons tous faire est de continuer à employer le programme de surveillance du voisinage que la COPA a suggéré en 2002. Si vous ne pensez pas que nous ayons besoin de faire quoi que ce soit, pensez simplement à septembre 2001 lorsque notre liberté de voler nous a été subitement et complètement enlevée. Ceci est revenu graduellement, mais jusqu’à ce jour ce n’est pas retourné aux niveaux d’avant les évènements du 11 septembre. Ça peut arriver encore, soit par la mise en place graduelle de mesures ou soudainement en réponse à une menace réelle ou perçue.

Toutes les brochures (dispense/enregistrement) et les certificats doivent être remplacés par les versions 2012. Vous pouvez commander de nouvelles brochures et des certificats en faisant parvenir un courriel à copaforkids@copanational.org ou en imprimant les documents disponibles en ligne en janvier 2012 à l’adresse internet suivante: http://www.copaforkids.org/content/inde x.cfm?page=Pilots

Joyeux 60ième! La COPA aura 60 ans cette année Cette année, l’Association canadienne des propriétaires et pilotes d’aéronefs (COPA) fête ses 60 ans, alors nous ferons des célébrations spéciales en 2012. L’idée de former la COPA est née en avril 1952. Le pilote John Bogie de Laurentian Air Services était en train de luncher dans le salon du Club de vol d’Ottawa avec les pilotes Bill Peppler et Paul Saunders de Spartan Air Services lorsque le pilote Margaret Carson est arrivée en furie et a déclaré que quelque chose doit être fait au sujet de la façon dont les propriétaires et opérateurs de petits avions sont maltraités par le gouvernement. Dans ce temps là, personne ne s’occupait des petits opérateurs et des propriétaires d’avions individuels au Canada. Un des problèmes qui avait déclenché l’initiative de Mme.Carson était l’application de la taxe routière sur le carburant aviation. Comme résultat de cette discussion informelle, des pilotes locaux d’Ottawa intéressés ont fourni 5$ chacun pour défrayer l’impression et la distribution d’affiches. Une rencontre organisationnelle a été tenue le vendredi 12 décembre 1952, à 13h30, dans le salon du Club de vol d’Ottawa. M. Bogie a agi comme président à la réunion et Carson a agi comme secrétaire. De ces humbles débuts, la COPA a grandi pour devenir la plus grosse association aéronautique au Canada. Pour marquer ce 60ième jalon, nous allons publier un article sur l’histoire de la COPA dans l’édition d’avril de COPA Flight, célébrer le 60ième anniversaire au Rendez-vous aérien national et Assemblée générale annuelle de la COPA en juin, offrir des items commémoratifs spéciaux de la Collection COPA et nous vous demanderons à vous, les membres, ce que vous pensez de la COPA lors d’un sondage en 2012. Bonne Année et bon anniversaire!

Sondage COPA 2012: nous voulons savoir ce que vous pensez

CALGARY PILOT SUPPLY www.PilotShop.ca 1-800-563-9633

La COPA conduira un sondage de ses membres en janvier 2012. L’étude servira à s’assurer que l’association dessert ses membres du mieux possible. Ceci est fait en demandant aux membres leur opinion à propos de divers sujets en aviation, des services fournis par la COPA et aussi en ramassant des données démographiques qui aident la COPA à mieux comprendre qui sont ses membres. Le dernier sondage des membres COPA a été effectuée en 2007 et le plan à ce moment-là était de continuer avec une autre étude cinq ans plus tard pour voir ce qui a changé et pour obtenir de la nouvelle information sur ce que les membres pensent de la COPA et des questions en aviation. Comme résultat des réactions que nous avons reçues lors de notre dernier questionnaire en 2007, nous avons fait des améliorations significatives à nos services.

Voici trois de ces améliorations: 1 Puisque 95% des membres COPA ont indiqué qu’ils avaient accès à l’internet et plus de la moitié de ceux qui accèdent au site internet de la COPA avaient indiqué le besoin pour que le site internet de la COPA soit réorganisé et amélioré, le nouveau site internet de la COPA a été lancé en juin 2009. 2 Les escadrilles COPA (chapitres locaux) ont eu un score élevé à la question des bénéfices et ainsi nous avons restructuré le concept et revigoré l’enthousiasme au sujet des escadrilles COPA. Depuis ce temps, 30 nouvelles escadrilles COPA ont été formées, plus de 60 escadrilles ont réactivé leur statut d’escadrille et les évènements locaux ont augmenté de manière significative. 3 Les membres COPA ont manifesté l’importance d’attirer les jeunes vers l’aviation, alors la COPA a lancé son propre programme COPA pour enfants en février 2010.

I’m grateful and appreciative. My Lake aircraft is going into the hangar now for the winter, with perhaps an occasional flight here and there. Anyhow, thank you again for your great service. You’re very responsive and attentive, which is hugely refreshing. My only regret is we did not cross paths sooner, as you’d have had my business sooner. Please diarize July 27, 2012 as an important date. Not only is it my six-year-old co-pilot’s birthday, but the Cessna policy ends about then, so we’ll transfer all business to you at that point.

L’enquête COPA 2012 sera menée par un consultant expérimenté, le Docteur Keith Christopher, de la Compagnie KC Surveys. Lorsque tous les questionnaires seront retournés, il analysera les données reçues et préparera un rapport mettant en lumière des recommandations à la COPA. Le sondage 2012 sera accompli de deux manières. Un échantillon des membres COPA recevra le questionnaire de l’étude par courrier avec une enveloppe de retour pré adressée. Les autres membres COPA qui ne reçoivent pas la copie papier du questionnaire seront invités à compléter le questionnaire en ligne sur le site internet de la COPA. Tous les membres COPA qui complètent un questionnaire sur papier ou en ligne seront automatiquement entrés dans un tirage d’un micro-casque d’écoute Sennheiser S1, courtoisie Sennheiser Canada. Des prix additionnels seront tirés courtoisie de COPA, le Centre du pilote VIP et Aircraft Spruce Canada. Si vous ne complétez pas le questionnaire, vous ne pouvez pas gagner! La COPA publiera un rapport des résultats du sondage en même temps que des mises à jour régulières faisant un sommaire de nos progrès à mettre en place les résultats du sondage. Cette information sera publiée dans le journal COPA Flight et sera inscrite sur le site internet de la COPA. Toutes les réponses individuelles seront gardées confidentielles et seulement le sommaire des résultats sera publié. Le sondage 2012 de la COPA sera posté vers la fin de janvier. Au même moment, le site internet de la COPA permettra aux membres qui ne reçoivent pas le questionnaire imprimé de le compléter en ligne durant la première semaine de février.

RE: GREAT READING I have just set down the November issue of COPA Flight with a smile on my face after reading some of the better all-Canadian flying stories of the year. Dave Storey’s tales of what it takes to safely engage in Yukon ski flying, or rather ski landing are jawdropping to a southern Ontario paved runway flyer like me. And Jorma Kivilahti’s description of the welcome that Ernie MacLean extends to visitors to his absolute gem of a grass strip in New Brunswick was heart-warming. My thanks to the writers for bringing us these stories and once again illustrating the huge variety in the Canadian aviation experience.

COPA FLIGHT

JANUARY 2012

A couple of things to consider this year O

nce again a new year is upon us and I hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable Holiday Season. I would like to mention a couple of things for you to consider in the next month or two: the upcoming Director elections and the eCATS program. In my June 2011 column I told you about the Governance review that your Board went through during the previous 12 months. The details are in my June column but the bottom line is the Board has redefined its committee structure and specified detailed terms of reference in order to better handle the governance affairs of COPA and has more clearly defined the role of the Directors in our nine regions. These nine regions are: *Newfoundland and Labrador (1 Director) *The Maritimes (PEI, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick) (2 Directors) Quebec (2 Directors) Southern Ontario (3 Directors) *Northern Ontario (1 Director) *Manitoba and Nunavut (1 Director) *Saskatchewan (1 Director) *Alberta and Northwest Territories (2 Directors)

In recent years many of our regional British Columbia and Yukon Territory Director elections have had neither a (2 directors) I’m telling you this because 2012 is an good number of candidates nor a good election year in six of these nine regions voter turnout. Often there are not even (those marked with *). If you live in one enough candidates to hold an election. of these regions I want you to give a little Personally, and for the good of the organthought to the job of being a volunteer ization, I would really like to see that COPA Director.

Chairman’s message

The purpose of the eCATS website is to gather information from you about how much flying you do and how much you spend on aviation. When enough data has been collected Transport Canada will be able to provide statistics to help build an economic footprint for general aviation in Canada. This is needed to convince the politicians that we are an important economic generator, and that GA airports and a national GA policy are needed. I remind you of this now because the data is collected on an annual basis for the previous year. So January is a great time to log on to the eCATS website and enter your activity for last year. This is entirely voluntary but it is important and I am personally every aircraft owner to take the time to do this each year. It only takes 30 minutes of your time once a year. See my November 2009 column for all the details. You can find the eCATS web site at: http://www.tc.gc.ca/pol/en/ecats/genaviation/ga.htm or by searching “tc/ecats” on Google. Once there click on “eCATS/GA – Data Collection” on the left side of the page. Have a great year and keep that prop spinning!

Certaines choses à considérer cette année E ncore une fois, une Nouvelle Année est à nos portes et j’espère que vous avez eu une relaxante et agréable Saison des Fêtes. J’aimerais mentionner quelques petites choses pour votre considération durant le prochain mois ou deux: les élections prochaines des directeurs et le programme CESTA (Collecte électronique de statistiques sur le transport aérien). Durant ma colonne de juin 2011, je vous ai parlé de la revue de la gouvernance que votre Conseil de direction a effectuée durant les 12 mois précédents. Les détails sont dans ma colonne de juin, mais le point principal est que le Conseil a redéfini sa structure de comité et a spécifié des termes de référence détaillés afin de mieux gérer les affaires de gouvernance de la COPA et elle a défini plus clairement le rôle des directeurs dans nos neuf régions. Ces neuf régions sont les suivantes: Terre-Neuve et Labrador (un directeur)* Les Maritimes (IPE, Nouvelle-Écosse et Nouveau-Brunswick) (deux directeurs)* Québec (deux directeurs) Sud de l’Ontario (trois directeurs) Nord de l’Ontario (un directeur)* Manitoba et Nunavut (un directeur)* Saskatchewan (un directeur)* Alberta et Territoires du Nord-Ouest (deux directeurs)*

Colombie-Britannique et Territoire du Yukon (deux directeurs) Je vous dis cela parce que 2012 est une année d’élections dans six de ces neuf régions (celles indiquées avec un astérisque *). Si vous vivez dans l’une de ces régions, je veux que vous pensiez un peu à la tâche de devenir un directeur volontaire de la COPA. Est-ce que ce serait quelque chose qui pourrait vous intéresser durant les quatre prochaines années? Pouvez-vous penser à quelqu’un qui pourrait devenir un bon directeur de la COPA? Ceci est une opportunité de donner en retour à vos confrères aviateurs et de supporter l’organisation qui protège votre liberté de voler.

Message du president

du conseil d’administration par Bob Kirkby

Le Comité de gouvernance du Conseil d’administration prépare en ce moment un Appel aux urnes, appel qui apparaîtra dans l’édition de mars de COPA Flight avec tous les détails. En ce

moment, je veux juste vous faire réfléchir à ce propos, dans l’espoir de voir un nombre de candidats s’avancer dans chacune des régions ayant une élection. Durant les années récentes, plusieurs de nos élections de directeurs régionaux n’ont pas eu un bon nombre de candidats ni un grand nombre de voteurs. Souvent il n’y a pas assez de candidats pour tenir une élection. Personnellement, et pour le bien de l’organisation, j’aimerais vraiment voir cela changer. Amorcez donc la discussion avec vos amis pilotes et à l’intérieur des escadrilles COPA, ou clubs de vol, à propos de qui devrait représenter votre région au Conseil et représenter la COPA dans votre région. Ensuite soyez certain de déposer votre vote à travers notre processus de vote en ligne. Votre vote compte! Consultez tous les détails dans ce journal et sur le site internet de la COPA. Le second sujet que j’ai en tête est le Programme CESTA. Ceci a été discuté dans divers articles dans le journal COPA Flight au cours des dernières années. Consultez ma colonne de novembre 2009 sur le site internet de la COPA pour tous les détails à propos de CESTA et pourquoi vous devriez l’utiliser. Le but du site internet de CESTA est d’amasser de l’information à votre sujet à savoir combien de vol vous faites et combien vous dépensez en aviation.

Lorsque suffisamment de données auront été amassées, Transports Canada sera en mesure de fournir des statistiques pour aider à construire un portrait économique de l’aviation générale (AG) au Canada. Ceci est nécessaire pour convaincre les politiciens que nous sommes un générateur économique important, et que les aéroports d’AG et une politique nationale d’AG sont requis. Je vous rappelle ceci maintenant parce que les données sont amassées sur une base annuelle pour l’année précédente. Ainsi, le mois de janvier est un bon moment pour vous d’aller sur le site internet de CESTA et d’y entrer votre activité de l’an dernier. Ceci est entièrement volontaire mais c’est important et je demande personnellement à tous les propriétaires d’avion de prendre le temps de faire ceci à chaque année. Cela prend seulement 30 minutes de votre temps une fois par an. Consultez ma colonne de novembre 2009 pour tous les détails. Vous pouvez trouver le site internet CESTA à l’adresse suivante: http://www.tc.gc.ca/pol/fr/cesta/aviationgen/ag.htm ou en cherchant “tc/ecats” sur Google. Une fois sur le site en anglais, cliquez sur l’item «Français» en haut à gauche et ensuite cliquez sur “CESTA/AG - Collecte de données”, sur le côté gauche de la page. Passez une très belle année et continuez à faire tourner cette hélice!

Start of a new year, time for a little reflection Some of you may take a few moments on New Year’s Eve to revisit some of the highlights of the year past and think about important plans for the New Year. My involvement with the Manitoba Aviation Council and the St. Andrews Airport Authority were satisfying as we made progress on a number of agenda items and more importantly, Board members worked together well. COPA Flights in Manitoba were also actively promoting the annual Rust Remover, Fly-ins, a Nunavut tour, the Friday night suppers and the meeting with Kevin Psutka. The Balance of cash of the Manitoba Aviation Tour was contributed to COPA’s Freedom to Fly Fund. Of course there were some disappointments too as my long term active membership in another aviation association was challenged. As I look back on last year and need to decide if I should stand for reelection for another term as COPA Director I am reminded of two things. Only those things are lost which we do not pursue. Take time for your friends, otherwise time will take your friends.

Good news As stated in COPA’s calendar, On the Horizon, plans for Manitoba’s annual 9th Rust Remover are being formulized for Thursday, Feb. 2, 2012 at the Veterans Hall at 3584 Portage Avenue. Last year over 140 people attended and we hope that this year will bring a similar turnout. The director of Ports, North Dakota, and a representative for Canada Customs will address cross border travel. Currently were in negotiations with Transport Canada to provide a speaker and have the event, once again, designated as an eligible re-currency requirements. Look for more details prior to the meeting.

Jerry Roehr is the COPA director representing Manitoba and Nunavut.

Kingston’s aviation Christmas dinner another huge success By Avery Wagg These aviation Christmas dinners are always fun. You eat a lot of good food and then sit around and talk about flying. That’s a pretty good substitute when the weather outside is terrible.

Gene Manion provides some tips on flying in rugged Newfoundland.

We had 94 people show up again this year for Kingston’s aviation dinner, hosted for the 15th time by Dave and Lois Tisdale at the Italo-Canadian Club. Anybody who loves aviation is

welcome. It’s open to airport staff, private pilots, commercial pilots, ultra-light pilots, kit-builders, veterans and anyone else with an interest in aviation. Over the years the dinner has grown to the point where it’s now COPA one of eastern Ontario’s premier aviation events. FLIGHT 25 Gene Manion, author of Kingston, Ont. Flying on the Edge, was our guest speaker this year. He was able to open a small window of what it was like flying in Newfoundland back in the 1960s and 1970s. Definitely not for the faint of heart. It’s really only through speakers like Gene that the general public is able to get a glimpse of how important aviation is to our communities, and for that matter - all of Canada. Sean White played emcee for the evening, moving everything along nicely. The popularity of the dinner has grown over the years mostly from the efTony Tiefenbach, CFI at the Kingston Flying Club (left), presents the Jack Hamilton Memorial forts of Dave and Lois. award to Rob Chartrand for his outstanding service to Kingston’s aviation community.

Flight passes motion to donate yearly to FtFF Past captain Ian Basson said that at the last Flight meeting he made a motion which was seconded by Charlie Murray (who was the 2008 convention COPA transportation boss) and carried unaniFLIGHT 75 mously, “That Flight St. Thomas, Ont. 75 donate $500 in 2011 and 10% of its year-end bank balance in future years to the (COPA Freedom to Fly Fund) special action fund.” This great idea from Flight 73 for raising money for the Freedom to Fly Fund and is an excellent idea for other Flights to help keep funds coming in on a regular basis. COPA President/CEO Kevin Psutka went to St. Thomas on the October 12th weekend and accepted the cheque for $500 from Flight members in front of the Flight’s barbecue shed at the airport. Thank you to Charlie Murray for the idea. The Flight will now donate 10% of its bank balance to the Fund each year to help keep it working for our freedom to fly.

mission. Following that, Hepburn headed home for a break. He would catch up with Chen later in Dubai on June 20. To make matters even more interesting from this point in the adventure Hepburn offered to email out frequent real-time updates during the trip and offered to add me to his mailing list. I suggested that I post his diary entries on the Flight 8 Blog as they came in and he agreed that would be a good idea. The progressively posted entries added a feel for the trip as it unfolded with its ups and downs in almost real time. The reports, starting with Hepburn’s departure for Dubai on June 20, remain on the Flight 8 blog at http://copa8.blogspot.com/search /label/Al%20Hepburn . They are an interesting read all by themselves. Hepburn’s time in Dubai included a bus tour of the city with a desert 4X4 safari where his vehicle got a flat tire and the obligatory camel ride, not to mention a barbecue with belly dancing. Hepburn noted that the recession has been hard on the once-booming Dubai and his five-star hotel room was only $53 per night. Chen invited a friend of his named Sam, to join the flight and they departed for Muscat, Oman on June 23. Flight planning was complicated by the fact that Chen had no charts, but Hepburn had year-old ones, plus the TBM had an up-to-date GPS database.

COPA FLIGHT

JANUARY 2012

Five honoured for 25 Five members of the Provincial Emergency Program, Air (PEP Air) received certificates honouring 25 years of service in air search and rescue (CASARA). The presentation took place at the Kamloops Flying Club, Fulton Field. Recipients, pictured from left, are: Dave Ireland, Rick West, Chuck Henderson, Alec Farquarson, Allan McNeely.

From Dubai to Seattle After Muscat the next destination was Agra, India. En route the TBM’s PT-6 engine showed a high oil temperature reading, which was a concern, especially over water. Arriving at Agra close to airport closing time the crew were ready with a PDF chart of the ILS approach but were cleared for the VOR/DME, an approach for which they had no chart. Since the weather was good they requested the visual approach and completed that instead. Arriving on a Friday evening in Agra allowed Hepburn to experience the worst motor vehicle traffic he had ever seen anywhere on earth. On top of that the passenger they had brought along was not on the requisite permits which was not acceptable in India and nothing could be solved until the appropriate offices opened on Monday, leaving them parked for the weekend. The PT-6 engine was ground tested and seemed to be performing acceptably. At least the weekend off gave the three travellers a chance to see the Taj Mahal. After the permit problem was rectified it was onto Kolkata (formerly called Calcutta). The PT-6 was again showing erratic high oil temperature indications, but it seemed to be an indication problem. After one night in Kolkata next was a flight over Bangladesh and Myanmar (Burma) to Thailand and the capital, Bangkok, where another media extravaganza awaited. The mandatory handling fees at Bangkok airport were an amazing $3,500! However this was not the highest handling fee that Chen paid. In Bangkok, Chen discovered that his banner was not welcome and getting photographs of it was a challenge. By this point in the trip, with all the flying, time zone changes and media events, everyone was very tired. Sam departed to be replaced on the TBM by a People’s Daily female reporter and a cameraman. At the next stop in Vientiane, Laos, the crew noticed that the ground-handling company had sent the same handler from Bangkok out by airline to deal with their arrival. Hepburn didn’t ask what the handling fee in Vientiane was.

The next day it was onto Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) where they saw a puppet show, made a photo-op trip to an orphanage and did a tour of part of the Mekong Delta. The busy city of Hong Kong was next, the gateway to China itself. Here they were parked at an actual dedicated general aviation terminal, but in Hong Kong GA means Boeing Business Jets and Gulfstream G-Vs, all dwarfing the tiny TBM 700. In Hong Kong, Hepburn’s wife Carolyn joined them and they toured the island, Aberdeen Harbour and visited the Botanical Gardens. Chen assured Hepburn that they would only be going to airports that offered English ATC and convinced him to continue on the flight and not stay in Hong Kong. On July 7, they departed for Chen’s hometown of Changsha, the capital city of Hunan, in south-central China. The TBM was full of media people. Hepburn was not surprised to find out on their arrival that Chen had a U.S. public relations team for his arrival, flown in by airline. On July 10, they flew onto Xi’an, the capital of the Shaanxi province, for more media events. To get into Beijing it was necessary to be on the ground before 0900 hours and that meant leaving the hotel before 0200 hours local time. Even though English was actually available, Chen conducted all the radio conversations in China in Chinese, which left Hepburn out of the proceedings. On arrival Air Traffic Control reported the visibility as three kilometres, but Hepburn doubted it was even one kilometre. The highly polluted Beijing air seems to be the subject of some propaganda, or at least denial. During the time in the capital, in between the media events, they were able to visit the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. Upon leaving Beijing, they were presented with a $6,500 handling fee, the highest on the trip. For that much money you would think that the service would be outstanding, but they were subject to a three-hour delay because an Airbus A320 was parked on the painted yellow

taxiway line on the ramp, between the TBM’s parking space and the departure runway. There was lots of room to taxi around the A320, but deviating from yellow lines is not permitted in China. Eventually the A320 was towed to another place and the flight to Harbin commenced. Once in Harbin the crew was able to visit the famous Siberian Tiger Park. Harbin was the last Chinese stop and from there it was onto Russia. Hepburn had travelled through Russia before and so its pitfalls and legendary bureaucracy held few surprises. The stops were Khabarovsk, Magadan and Anadyr. The intention was to land at the island airport in Anadyr in time to catch the last ferryboat to town, but the schedule had been changed and they, literally, missed the boat. This resulted in a stay at the small airport hotel instead, where they were at least able to buy some groceries for supper. The trip back to North America started on July 19, with a leg from Anadyr to Anchorage, Alaska. The flight over the Bering Strait went smoothly and they ended the day in a hotel right on Lake Hood, the world’s busiest seaplane base. During the stay there the crew went for a floatplane sightseeing tour in a Cessna 206 and landed on a melt-water lake to visit a glacier. On the way south on July 20, to Juneau in the TBM they detoured to overfly Mount McKinley, the highest point in North America. They also flew by Mount Logan, Canada’s highest peak. With favourable winds they were able to comfortably make a non-stop leg from Juneau directly to Boeing Field in Seattle, Washington, where Hepburn completed his part of the voyage and headed home to Pembroke, Ontario by airline. In answering Flight 8’s members’ questions after his presentation Hepburn admitted that trips like this are not vacations, but done to prove something. In this case, Chen did achieve his goal and became the first Chinese citizen to fly around the world, with help from Hepburn and Air Journey.

COPA Fly-in and AGM for 2012 and beyond COPA is looking for host airports for the coming years. The new COPA Fly-in and AGM format is a weekend fly-in which will feature our annual general meeting, seminars, aircraft displays and much more. The host airport should ideally have parking for up to 200 aircraft. In order to focus the event on flying, the physical presence of aircraft and the ability of attendees to wander among the aircraft, is critical. To achieve this, airports having scheduled service should be avoided due to the stringent airside security regulations. The annual COPA Fly-in and AGM will be held on a rotational basis across Canada. For example: 2012

Eastern Canada* HANOVER, ON — June 22-24

2013

Western Canada** DAWSON CREEK, BC — June 21-23

2014

Eastern Canada* PETERBOROUGH, ON — June 20-22

2015

Western Canada** Exact location not yet determined – open to proposals

2016

Eastern Canada* Exact location not yet determined – open to proposals

* Eastern Canada for this purpose is considered to be anywhere east of the Ontario/Manitoba border ** Western Canada for this purpose is considered to be anywhere west of Ontario/Manitoba border

Fly to CYHS, not CPN4, for COPA’s annual Fly-in/AGM By Phil Englishman In June, fly to CYHS (Hanover, Ont.) and not CPN4 (also Hanover, Ont.) but any which way you set your GPS or draw a line on your chart you are going to end up at the COPA Cabana Plane Fun Fly-In/AGM. The identifier for the Saugeen Municipal Airport changed as of December 15, 2011. Saugeen Municipal Airport is in the heart of Bruce County and operated by three area municipalities; one in Bruce and two in Grey County. The Municipality of Brockton in Bruce County is the Town of Walkerton and the Townships of Brant and Greenock. The Municipality of Hanover is the town closest to the airport and that is why it is listed in the CFS as such. The Municipality of West Grey is the Town of Durham and the Township of Normanby which houses the picturesque village of Ayton. All three municipalities actively fund and support the airport which they feel is a valuable community asset. The area is a tourists Mecca for anything that strikes your fancy with all the unique attractions there. The COPA Cabana Plane Fun Flyin/AGM, whose major sponsor is Magnes (broker for COPA’s VIP COPA Aviation Insurance Program), has a special program planned for you starting with the early registration prizes to the Saturday lunch speaker and to the keynote speaker at Saturday’s banquet and the wind-up famous breakfast at the Saugeen Municipal Airport. To start, there are two exceptional prizes to be won as an early registrant. First is a 406 ELT from Kitchener’s Pointer Avionics as well as an exquisite $1,000 Swiss wrist watch from the Hamilton Watch Company. Following informative and exciting sessions hosted by notable aviation associated speakers and the annual COPA AGM, the after lunch speaker will be Honorary Colonel G. Haddon (RCAF) the grandson of J. A. D. McCurdy, Canada’s first aviator who flew the Silver Dart. Completing the Saturday night banquet is Peter McLeod, Canada’s only Red Bull Air

Race competitor and major-player in the world of aerobatics, who will be our keynote speaker. Unofficially, “Plane Fun” begins on June 21st 2012, but officially, registration commences on June 22nd with “goody bags” that are brimming full. The evening’s “Meet and Greet” will give everyone the opportunity to network with fellow aviation enthusiasts and long time flying buddies and feast on the sumptuous Bruce/Grey country-style hometown meal. Now we don’t want to tell you anymore because it will spoil the rest of the surprises waiting for you at the 2012 COPA Cabana Fly-in/AGM. Just want to say, “See you there.” If you want a sneak peak go to www.copacabana2012.ca to see our list of generous sponsors or www.saugeenmunicipalairport.com for other information.

The ratings are in for the first season of The Aviators, the weekly TV series airing across the U.S. on PBS. And the numbers are extremely encouraging. The average weekly household viewership in the U.S. for season one was an incredible 3,590,899. Assuming 2.6 viewers per household that equates to 9,336,337 viewers. Projections suggest an increase of 10% for season two. That would result in 3,949,989 households and 10,269,971 viewers. “These numbers are almost double what we had forecast,” said Anthony Nalli, Executive Producer of The Aviators and one of the show’s hosts. “It’s clear that the passion for aviation is alive and well and that something was simply needed to awaken what was lying dormant in so many for so long.” The second season of The Aviators premiered last September on PBS and is also broadcast across Canada on Travel+Escape, overseas on Discovery, and online on iTunes and Hulu. According to Nalli, the show is also contributing to growing the pilot population. “We receive emails with humbling regularity from fans crediting the show with providing the inspiration to fulfill their lifelong dream of finally getting their pilot’s license.” The third season of The Aviators is now in production and the producers have also begun work on a new series entitled “Air Boss.” Additional information on both shows can be found at www.theaviators.tv

Hope Air honours Nav Canada with prestigious award The 2011 Outstanding Philanthropist Award presented by Hope Air to a member of the Air Transport Association of Canada has been awarded to Nav Canada. The Hope Air Mission is to arrange free flights for low-income Canadians to get to specialized medical care that is not available in their local communities: this Award celebrates the generous contributions Nav Canada has made to Hope Air and its Clients since 2003. Nav Canada has provided a variety of support to Hope Air since their partnership was formed: it has ranged from regular financial contributions to Hope Air’s charitable mission; to waiving of fees for Hope Air volunteer pilots; to participation in charitable events that raise funds for Hope Air. The support of Nav Canada has made a great difference in the lives of Hope Air Clients across Canada. From northern Ontario, Fauzia and her two-year-old daughter Dinar must travel to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto a few times a year for assessment and treatment of Dinar’s neurological condition. Hope Air and our Volunteer Pilots, with the generous support of Nav Canada, ensure that Fauzia and Dinar can make the trip, easily, in less than two hours, compared to the onerous drive of 12 hours or more each way. Fauzia and Dinar’s story is not unique: thousands of families and individuals face these challenges each day across Canada. Winter driving in a country like Canada presents even more concerns. Hope Air has the ability to eliminate the physical, emotional and financial stress their Clients experience by providing them with free flights to get to the specialized healthcare they need, but which is not available in their local communities. “Nav Canada’s investment in Hope Air helps make air travel for health reasons accessible to all in Canada, particularly low-income Canadians in our smaller, more distant communities,� said Hope Air Executive Director Doug Keller-Hobson. “Nav Canada is sustaining and nurturing the Hope Air vision that everyone in Canada has access to the healthcare they need, despite distance or cost of travel.�

In the first 10 months of 2011, Hope Air has arranged 3,946 flights – an increase of 36 per cent over the same time last year. In the week of November 6 to 12, there were more than 75 Hope Air flights taking place across Canada. Hope Air provides flights to people of all ages, with all illnesses from all across Canada. “We are proud to support the exemplary work of Hope Air and

the difference they make for thousands of Canadians in their time of need,� said John Crichton, Nav Canada president and CEO. “The generosity of the entire aviation sector, from the individual volunteer pilot to the contributions of the country’s commercial carriers, to this cause is inspiring. Nav Canada is pleased to be one of Hope Air’s many supporters from within the industry along with the numer-

ous corporations and foundations that contribute to this worthy effort.� “If you want to make a difference in the lives of Canadians it takes the type of focused investment that Nav Canada has made in Hope Air over the last several years,� says Doug Keller-Hobson. “This is why we are so honoured to recognize Nav Canada with this year’s Outstanding Philanthropist Award.�

Andy Campbell, vice-president, customer and commercial services, at Nav Canada, accepted the Outstanding Philanthropist Award at the annual meeting of the Air Transportation Association of Canada in Montreal on Monday, Nov. 14, 2011.

Water or woods? Over the years I often been asked; given the choice in an emergency situation which would you prefer, a crash into water or a large stand of trees? In explaining my answer I always state neither, as I have survived both options and don’t plan to endure that experience ever again and will avoid either of these situations at all cost. Not that I profess to be related to Evil Knievel, just that my initial aviation training came with a high speed crash into the Fraser River east of Vancouver seated as a passenger while avoiding power lines, followed by several years later an engine out while flying a Cessna 180 in the Yukon. Please bear in mind I flew the bush in Northern Canada for many years from the Yukon and Northwest Territories to Alaska before settling into IFR including Charter MediVacs, cargo and corporate. These personal experiences are contributing factors as to why I preach aircraft safety and spearheaded Egress Training for the General Aviation enthusiast which includes light to medium aircraft and helicopter operators plus their passengers. Statistically, takeoffs and landings are where the majority of aircraft accidents take place, indicating that pilots and their passengers need to remain cognisant of this fact by seriously focusing on this phase of flight until lthey have levelled off at a safe altitude. In the event low flying is required, ask yourself is there another option or could the flight be postponed if weather, for example, is the culprit. The contributing factor to my enduring an over 100-mph crash into water was simply forgoing common sense to enjoy the thrill of low flight. Factoring in the intense orange sun low on the horizon while heading west which should have been reason enough to eliminate the temptation, but it was 16 high tension powerlines across our path that proved this activity to be foolhearty. On the other hand, we did prove on Aug. 26, 1977 that good quality military-style aerobatic seat belts do withstand extreme G force impact for survivability. Coincidentally due to this incident over two decades later the seed was planted, as in 1998 I would pioneer Aviation Egress Systems which has now egress trained over 5,000 aviators and has been instrumental in saving numerous lives in multiple aircraft-related accidents. Regarding the Cessna 180 engine failure story, I had demonstrated before my very eyes why not to fly poorly maintained equipment which has sat long enough to have birds build obstructions in critical areas such as carb air ducts. In this case shoulder harnesses were not available and serious injuries were the re-

Bry, the Dunker Guy by Bryan Webster sult of a sudden stop impact from tree top altitudes. Moral of the story is do not, fear flight or let these things happen to you by simply learning from the mistakes of others who have been there and are willing to share their knowledge with you via training programs simulated in a safe environment. Now to answer the question water or woods; your flight training and experience should tell you the answer at the time as we cannot pre-plan for an emergency, but there are many things you could have previously considered. Firstly, a lot depends on your aircraft —is it high wing or low wing, helicopter or a flying boat. Are the fuel tanks located in the floor under your seats — which would deter me from considering all hard landing sites with any rock present as is the case in the majority of Northern Canada. What is the water temperature — as in spring thaw or fall freeze-up, temperatures where cold shock would be a contributing factor to an egress situation. I recall the debrief after being handed my commercial pilot’s licence at Langley airport back in 1978 including a tip on how to enter trees with an engine out. The examiner of the day said to me if you have to crash into trees go in slow and let the tree tops take the impact and all will be well. I later found out that evidently he personally had only read that information and never been there. In real life you bang and smash through the tree tops similar to careening off a highway in a car at high speed then impact the ground at such great force it cannot be described and hope to walk away intact. In ending this debate, aviation is by far the safest way to travel given good equipment and due diligence regarding any of the flight factors we could encounter including weather, and that good quality seat belt harness with a quick release mechanism do save lives.

Bry the Dunker Guy has flown 35 plus aircraft in all configurations with near 12,000 hours. When not Egress Training pilots and their passengers he can be found flying floats somewhere around the B.C. coast.

F.B.O. F.B.O. is an acronym and does not refer to some great big Ostrich. How it started was way back in the United States of America, shortly after the First World War, there were the crazy ones that we called the “Barnstormers” who flew from city to city, landing wherever they could and for a few shekels they offered plane rides and aerobatic feats for the populace to watch. When a bunch of them got together, they were called “Flying Circuses” and townsfolk gathered by the dozen to watch these events. Because of this, mechanics and flight instructors followed these aircraft around but did not have a central location to work from. In 1926, Uncle Samuel declared the Air Commerce Act that required pilots and aircraft mechanics to be licensed. Thus ended the transient nature of civil aviation in the U.S. and as permanent business locations were established, these became to be known as Fixed-Base Operations (FBO). Clever, eh? What they offered were flight schools, the sale of aviation fuel, aircraft charter and rental, aerial photography, crop dusting and even advertising. Most places had restroom facilities, communication access, vending machines and Rochester has one of the best FBO’s that we found. sold aviation supplies.

I landed in CYXX at 9:28 and was advised to taxi to the customs shack located near the Shell FBO. The tower operator advised me to call Canada Customs. Canada Customs advises me that I am to go to the customs area and wait as they wish to verify my verbal declaration. As I taxied to this little blue shack, there was a sign on the Shell hangar door which read something to the effect that all aircraft requiring customs services are subject to an extra ramp fee levied by the Shell operator. How ‘bout dat? I wait on the ramp and I wait on the ramp. I telephone Canada Customs and they assure me that officers will be there soon. I wait and wait. After 45 minutes, a young guy and girl prance onto the ramp. They check our passports, chat a bit, and that is all. Nope, you guessed it, they did not even look into the plane, look under the plane, ask for my pilot’s license, registration, or C of A. So, I ponder, “Why did they make us sit out here for 45 minutes after they had two hours notice, and how did they verify our verbal declarations when they did not review anything?” This is how our tax dollars are absurdly wasted. If you are not going to verify our verbal declaration, why not just clear us over the phone? If we must give two hours advance notice, why can Canada Customs not be on time. I know that if I make an appointment with one of my clients and were 45 minutes late, that client would not be my client for very long.

Aviation accident /incident summaries The following are recent general aviation incidents involving light aircraft taken from daily reports from Transport Canada and the Transportation Safety Board. Please note that for the most part, these records contain preliminary, unconfirmed data which can be subject to change. A10P0205: A Cessna 152 was landing at Williams Lake, B.C. on RWY 11 after a flight from Vanderhoof. Just before touchdown the aircraft encountered a gust, bounced and on the second touchdown the nose wheel contacted the ground first, the propeller struck the runway and the aircraft ground looped to the right. The nose wheel went off the paved surface. There were no injuries. A10A0041: A Grumman TBM-3E departed Runway 09 at the Miramichi Airport (CYCH) in New Brunswick, for a local training flight. About 1340 ADT, on the downwind leg, the aircraft went into a gradual descent and collided with the terrain. It came to rest on the south side of the airport on the edge of an industrial area. The pilot was fatally injured and the aircraft was destroyed. A10C0115: A Piper PA-28-235 was on a VFR flight from The Pas, Manitoba to Thompson. Shortly after departure, the pilot experienced difficulty navigating with the GPS navigation system (Garmin 155 Xl) and requested assistance from Thompson FSS to navigate to the nearest airport. The pilot was advised to climb to 5,500 feet ASL and to squawk code 7700. Communication was lost for about 30 minutes, and then re-established through an aircraft in the circuit at Thompson. ATS was able to determine the Piper’s position about 60 nm southwest of Oxford House Manitoba. The aircraft was low on fuel and was not able to reach Oxford House. About 30 nm SW of Oxford House the engine stopped operating and the pilot carried out a forced landing on a winter road cut-line . The Piper sustained damage to its nose gear and wings. The pilot and aircraft were later located by an overflying aircraft. RCC dispatched a helicopter to rescue the uninjured pilot. A10O0135: The pilot of a U.S. registered Cessna 185E float equipped aircraft, attempted to land at Temagami (CNC8), in Ontario, overshot the lake and flew the aircraft around for a second attempt from a different direction. The aircraft bounced several times during the landing and the pilot was unable to slow the aircraft sufficiently to use the water rudders to steer the aircraft, and did not have enough room to perform a go-around. The aircraft was travelling at approximately 60 mph when it hit a dock at the end of the lake; both floats were structurally damaged by the impact. The aircraft sank and came to rest with the tail and left wing completely submerged. Both occupants were uninjured and able to exit the aircraft before it sank. Fuel was found to be leaking from

the aircraft’s wings and measures were taken by local authorities to contain the fuel spill. A10A0077: A Jodel-D-11 aircraft had a new fuel injection system recently installed on the engine and a test flight at Havelock, New Brunswick, was conducted. While the aircraft was on the downwind leg the fuel pressure decreased and the engine lost power. An unsuccessful attempt was made to restart the engine. The aircraft was too high and fast on final approach for a power-off landing. The aircraft landed and departed the far end of the runway; the right wing was separated from the fuselage when it struck trees. The pilot sustained minor injuries; the aircraft came to rest in a ditch and was destroyed. A10P0211: A Piper PA22-150 was landing at Abbotsford, B.C. on RWY 01 from Mount Vernon. At touchdown, directional control was lost and the aircraft ground-looped, causing the left main gear to collapse. The left wing, wing strut and propeller were damaged. The two occupants were not injured.

Le texte ci-dessous représente divers incidents d’aviation générale impliquant des avions légers. Les textes sont sélectionnés à partir de rapports de Transport Canada et du Bureau de la sécurité aérienne. Veuillez noter que la plupart de ces filières contiennent de l’information préliminaire, nonconfirmée et sujette à changement. A10P0205: Un Cessna 152 effectuait un atterrissage à Williams Lake, C.-B., sur la piste 11 à la suite d’un vol en provenance de Vanderhoof. Juste avant le toucher, l’avion a rencontré une bourrasque de vent, a rebondi sur la piste et lors du second toucher, la roue avant a contacté le sol d’abord, l’hélice a frappé la piste et l’avion a fait une tête-àqueue vers la droite. La roue avant a quitté la surface pavée. Il n’y a eu aucune blessure. A10A0041: Un Grumman TBM-3E a décollé de la piste 09 à l’Aéroport de Miramichi (CYCH) au Nouveau-Brunswick, pour un vol d’entraînement local. À environ 14h30, heure de l’Atlantique, en vent arrière, l’avion est entré dans une descente graduelle et est entré en collision avec le terrain. Il s’est enfin arrêté du côté sud de l’aéroport sur le bord d’une zone industrielle. Le pilote a été blessé mortellement et l’avion a été détruit. A10C0115: Un Piper PA-28-235 effectuait un vol VFR de la Ville de The Pas, MB, vers Thompson. Peu après le départ, le pilote a expérimenté des difficultés à naviguer avec le système de navigation GPS (Garmin 155XI) et a demandé l’assistance de FSS Thompson pour naviguer jusqu’à l’aéroport le plus proche. Le pilote a été avisé de monter à 5,500 pieds

ASL et d’émettre le code 7700. La communication a été perdue pendant environ 30 minutes, et ensuite a été ré établie par le biais d’un avion dans le circuit à Thompson. Les services de la circulation aérienne ont été capables de déterminer la position du Piper à environ 60 miles nautiques d’Oxford House, Manitoba. L’avion manquait de carburant et n’était pas capable de se rendre à Oxford House. À environ 30 miles nautiques au sud-ouest d’Oxford, le moteur a arrêté de fonctionner et le pilote a effectué un atterrissage forcé sur une route forestière d’hiver. Le Piper a subi des dommages à sa roue avant et aux ailes. Le pilote et l’avion ont été plus tard localisés par un avion survolant la région. Le Centre de coordination de sauvetage a envoyé un hélicoptère pour secourir le pilote non blessé. A10O0135: Le pilote d’un Cessna 185E américain monté sur flotteurs a tenté d’amerrir sur le Lac Temagami (CNC8) en Ontario, a fait une approche à basse altitude et a volé l’avion autour pour revenir pour une deuxième tentative dans une direction différente. L’avion a rebondi plusieurs fois durant l’amerrissage et le pilote a été incapable de ralentir l’avion suffisamment pour utiliser les palonniers d’eau pour diriger l’avion, et il n’avait pas assez de place pour effectuer une remise des gaz. L’avion voyageait à environ 60 miles à l’heure lorsqu’il a frappé un quai au bout du lac; les deux flotteurs ont été structurellement endommagés par l’impact. L’avion s’est enfoncé dans l’eau et il s’est arrêté avec la queue et l’aile gauche complètement submergées. Les deux occupants n’ont pas été blessés et ont été capables de sortir de l’avion avant qu’il soit submergé. Il y avait une fuite de carburant provenant des aile de l’avion et des mesures ont été prises par les autorités locales pour contenir la fuite de carburant. A10A0077: Un avion de type Jodel D-11 a eu un nouveau système d’injection de carburant installé récemment sur le moteur et un test en vol à l’Aéroport d’Havelock, N.-B., a été effectué. Pendant que l’avion était en vent arrière, la pression d’essence a diminué et le moteur a perdu de la puissance. Une tentative infructueuse a été faite pour redémarrer le moteur. L’avion était trop haut et trop vite en approche finale pour un atterrissage sans pouvoir. L’avion a atterri et il a quitté le bout de la piste; l’aile droite s’est séparée du fuselage lorsqu’elle a frappé des arbres. Le pilote a subi des blessures mineures; l’avion s’est arrêté dans un fossé et il a été détruit. A10P0211: Un Piper PA-22-150 effectuait un atterrissage à Abbotsford, C.-B., sur la piste 01 en provenance de Mount Vernon. Au toucher, le contrôle directionnel a été perdu et l’avion a fait un tête-à-queue, forçant le train principal gauche à s’affaisser. L’aile gauche, le hauban d’aile et l’hélice ont été endommagés. Les deux occupants n’ont pas été blessés.

Webster Memorial Trophy Competition Why COPA members should compete Introduction by Kevin Psutka, COPA President and CEO: I’m a judge with the Webster Trophy Competition because it is a great way to combine the honing of one’s flying skills with the fun of flying and it is an excellent excuse to fly, with a payoff to boot, including prizes and it also qualifies for your two-year licence currency requirement. Please read on and then apply to compete and have fun! By Wayne Foy The 2011 Webster competition www.webstertrophy.ca was a spectacular success in so many ways. One of those ways was in the number of competitors who entered resulting in a recordbreaking 103 pilots striving to become finalists and the ultimate winner of the Top Amateur Pilot in Canada. The program is growing significantly each year offering greater prizes donated by many of our supporters from the aviation industry. Along with the excellent prizes received by our finalists, there are also those received by other competitors and flight instructors in our Early Bird and Instructor draws. The majority of competitors have been freshly licenced young pilots from the Flight Training Units and colleges across the country, many of who aspire to move on to professional careers in aviation. Unfortunately because of this the competition may leave you, the rental pilot or private aircraft owner with the impression that this is an event designed specifically for this group only and others would not

have a chance to win the coveted award. There is nothing further from the truth. Many pilots of various experience levels and of all ages have competed in the past and many have done very well. As an example a rental pilot in his 40s was a national finalist in 2010 and we have even had a gentleman at the very mature age of 72 compete a few years ago. This is a national competition for the top amateur pilot in Canada, open to everyone in the category, however it is not being pursued by many of you in the rental and private owner category and other than the perception of it being a competition for aspiring professional pilots as described above, one wonders why not. If you fall into the rental/ owner category is it perhaps because you have not flown with an instructor or examiner for many years and you feel your skills are no longer at a high level? If so, then this competition may be exactly what you need as an incentive and challenge; A challenge to yourself especially. What better venue to use in order to team up with a flight instructor, who will help you to remember how to perform that

forced landing, steep turn or short field approach once again that you have not practiced in years. Then have those newly honed skills evaluated by a Pilot Examiner in order to submit your results into the competition. Remember this is not a Transport Canada test, it is a competition test, therefore you have no fear of losing your licence by fly-

ing with a Pilot Examiner, but perhaps a great deal to gain by enhancing your safety, determining your strengths and very importantly, renewing your recency requirements in a very positive way. Oh, by the way, in addition to all the plusses mentioned above, you may just win the competition! How would you like to have

two free passes from our sponsor Air Canada to Canada, Caribbean and domestic U.S. (Hawaii is excluded), or perhaps fly with the Snowbirds, or wear a top-of-the line Sennheiser headset and a Hamilton X-Wind watch?

New helicopter preheat safety video ‘Just Plug It In’ available from Tanis Tanis Aircraft Products released a new video outlining the safety benefits of helicopter preheat. Tanis is the technology and innovation leader in aircraft preheat systems, including state of the art systems designed specifically for rotary wing aircraft. The new video highlights the functionality and features of the company’s helicopter preheat systems. Tanis preheat technology allows an operator to preheat critical driveline components and fluid reservoirs prior to flight. The video was first presented at the International Helicopter Safety Symposium (IHSS) in Fort Worth, Texas, on November 9. Following the video presentation, a number of delegates took the time to express support for Tanis preheat technology. One cold climate operator said, “I have Tanis preheat systems on all of my helicopters. For my fleet it is simply the best winter safety practice that money can buy.” Another participant said, “I was not aware that such a system existed. We’ve tried portable heaters at our remote sites and they are cumbersome to transport and fickle to operate. The Tanis system looks like the real deal, transportable, reliable and best of all safe.” The short two-minute video identifies wintertime hazards affecting the safe operation of rotary wing

aircraft relating to fluids, critical driveline components and battery efficiency. Tanis advocates the use of preheat systems prior to engine start to ensure a safer, more predictable winter launch with all gauges in the green. With the installation of a Tanis preheat system, the message concludes, helicopter operators can optimize launch times and minimize safety worries concerning critical in-flight components and fluids. Operators in cold climates have known for years that preheating is a winter season best practice and is mandated by both engine manufacturers and certain government jurisdictions. Selecting a proper preheat system enhances operational safety and saves on operational costs, enhances scheduling and decreases downtime during winter operations. See the video “Tanis - Helicopter Preheat - Just Plug It In” online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPwI_A7yUE0 For over 37 years, Tanis has been the technology and innovation leader in aircraft preheat systems. Tanis supports the aviation industry with technology and products that make winter flying safer.

Introduction by Kevin Psutka, COPA President/CEO: I am a member of the Board of the National Aviation Museum Society (NAMS) because I believe it is as important to the future of aviation to support efforts to preserve and celebrate our past as it is to fight for our future. We need to remind everyone of the past achievements and contributions of aviation to the development of Canada and that aviation remains the sole means of connecting many areas with the rest of Canada. I encourage COPA members to consider becoming a member of NAMS and/or to support your regional aviation museum in any way that you can. Volunteer or contribute to assist in the museum’s efforts to preserve and educate.

The National Aviation Museum Society Thirty years of preserving Canada’s priceless aviation heritage By Christopher J. Terry After more than 30 years of advocacy and direct financial contributions, the National Aviation Museum Society (NAMS) remains a steadfast supporter of the work of the Canada Aviation and Space Museum at Rockcliffe Airport in Ottawa. Recent events impacting aviation museums in Toronto and Edmonton make it clear that the role of organizations such as NAMS remains as critical today as it was in the past. NAMS came into being in the 1970s to address a crisis in the preservation of Canada’s national aeronautical heritage. After several years of gestation following a 1972 initiative by Pat Boyce of Boyce Aviation Ltd., the Society was incorporated in 1978 to address the alarming condition of the facilities in which Canada’s national collection of aeronautical artifacts was housed at Rockcliffe. Even then, the collection was widely regarded as being one of the finest in existence and one of the great national treasures of Canada. Those concerned, a mixture of aviation organizations and private citizens with an abiding interest in preserving Canada’s aeronautical heritage, were especially galvanized by the destruction by fire of a significant aviation collection in San Diego in February 1978. The prospect that such a fate could befall the Canadian national collection, housed as it was in unprotected tinder-dry wartime wooden hangars, was a call to action. NAMS provided a central focal point through which Canada’s aviation community could speak with one voice and it played a significant role in convincing the Government of Canada to construct new fire and vandal-proof quarters for the collection at Rockcliffe in the early 1980s. These were to be sufficient in size and

number to accommodate the artifacts that were then on public display in the old hangars plus most of the remaining collection then in storage. The full scope of the original plan for a 24,000 square metre facility housed in three buildings was not realized. The government of the day sought partners from the private sector to help meet the costs of developing the full plan but in the recessionary economic environment of the early 1980s this effort failed. The result was a decision to build a single structure of just over 13,000 square metres with the funds the government had available for such an undertaking. Ground for this building, which featured an innovative delta shape and space-frame technology, was broken in May 1983 and it opened on June 17, 1989. The former hangars were emptied and subsequently demolished. Although in the early aftermath of the opening of the new building there had been unofficial undertakings by the gov-

ernment to move on with the subsequent phases, the financial circumstances of the time did not make this a realistic possibility. This occasioned a broadening of the Society’s priorities. It became apparent in 1994 that as the Government of Canada moved to deal with the federal budget deficits through significant cuts in spending an additional opportunity had arisen whereby NAMS could continue to support the work of the National Aviation Museum as it was then known. This was by providing funds for critical work on the collection and for programs which would otherwise not be undertaken. At the same time, the Society maintained its role as a conduit through which the views of the aviation community could be channelled in support of an appropriate second phase for the Museum. This long awaited storage facility, also built on a shoe-string budget, was finally funded 10 years ago. It was opened in 2005. This made it possible for the first time in the Museum’s history for its entire collection to be housed in proper environmental conditions. Some of the aircraft concerned had been exposed to the Ottawa elements since 1964. NAMs once again played an important role in mustering support from the broad aviation community in Canada for this public investment. The Society successfully provided clear evidence to the government of the day of the importance of this long overdue second phase of the original plan. The Society has a membership base of several hundred people across Canada and the United States most of whom donate funds which can be used to support

critical priorities identified by the Museum’s Director General. Over the years these have included the purchase of specific equipment for restoration projects such as the Nieuport 17, Nieuport 12 and Avro Avian and the underwriting of the Museum’s early websites. All told, NAMS has contributed several tens of thousands of dollars to these initiatives since 1994. Given the current and foreseen robust program of collection and program activity at the Museum, this support will continue to be a vital contribution to the Museum’s longstanding reputation as one of the finest aviation, and now space, heritage institutions in the world. The Society remains mindful of its original objective as stated in its Letters Patent: “… to promote, foster and encourage the early establishment and continuing maintenance of safe, adequate and permanent quarters for Canada’s national aeronautical collection.” Though most of the original intent has been met to provide safe housing for this incomparable collection, ensuring its continued integrity remains an ongoing priority. The Society will continue to support the work of the Museum and its dedicated staff and volunteers with tangible financial contributions and, as the occasion merits, representations to members of government on behalf of the broader aviation community to make them aware of challenges facing one of Canada’s great treasures. It is inevitable that further construction will be required at Rockcliffe to accommodate even modest growth of the collection over the next decades. Financial stringency will make financial support imperative for tapping the true potential of the collection and the Museum’s intellectual resources. NAMS will continue to play a key role in demonstrating broad public support for these important tasks. Through the dedicated work and advocacy of people over many years Canada has created one of the finest institutions dedicated to telling its national story of accomplishment in the air and now in space. The continued health of this institution merits your support. You can do this by becoming a member of NAMS and joining with it in its funding and advocacy work. To do so, please contact NAMS at: nams@magma.ca. Information on the Canada Aviation and Space Museum can be found on its website: www.aviation.technomuses.ca

Flyer friends head south on float-flying adventure By Kevin Brown, Claude Roy and Patrick Vinet

I

n 2010, the International Challenger Owners Association (ICOA) organized a wonderful float flying trip to AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, home of the biggest fly-in in the world. So how can you surpass that? For a float plane guy, there is such a ticket: going to the biggest seaplane fly-in in the world! Held every year since 1973 on Moosehead Lake near Greenville, Maine, USA, the International Seaplane Fly-in (www.seaplanefly-in.org) brings in thousands of participants and spectators to the Moosehead Region on the weekend after Labour Day. This flying adventure was dubbed “The Big Splash-in.” Our original idea was to enter the U.S. via New Brunswick and fly to the 38th running of this four-day event to be held on Sept. 8-11, 2011. Following our visit to Moosehead Lake, a round-about return trip would bring us through Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts to New York State and the beautiful Hudson River Valley.

The trip project was publicly announced at the Annual Challenger Winter Weekend Rendezvous, held on the first weekend of February at the beautiful Chateau Montebello in Montebello, Que. This year, three people answered the

initial call: Kevin Brown from Port Elgin, Ont., flying a 2005 Challenger II C-IFBL; Claude Roy from Ottawa, Ont., flying his 1992 Challenger II C-IROY; and Patrick Vinet from St-Jovite, Que., flying his 1989 Challenger II C-GMAV.

Claude’s plane docked on beautiful Lake Ossipee, New Hampshire.

Having extensive experience in organizing long-range cross-country flights, Claude takes on the task of preparing an initial flight plan and he gets it circulated amongst the partners for discussion and approval. There will be no ground support this year, but three American friends will be visited on the return part of the trip. As Kevin’s aircraft is further west than the rest of the trio, it makes sense that he gets airborne first and fly eastbound to Ottawa to pick up Claude. From there, the two will fly to the Mont Tremblant StJovite Airport where Patrick is situated. From there, the group of three Challengers will fly east towards New Brunswick. The original invitation had been made to entice the contingent of ICOA members from the Maritimes to participate. The official trip destination would be achieved by going to New Brunswick first and then by entering the U.S. via the Houlton International Airport, in Northern Maine. Unfortunately the dates of the event were too close to East Coast Challenger rendezvous in Nova Scotia, so no one from the east coast took advantage of the group’s expertise to go flying into U.S. airspace. • continued on page B-2

The trip was not without its own peculiar challenges. Nevertheless, the group safely covered over 1,280 air miles (2,060 kms) in 11 days, landing on about 20 occasions while visiting wonderful places, meeting with great people and making many new friends. Here is our account of each one of these 11 days of adventure.

Day 1, Monday, Sept 5. Mostly cloudy, 17 degrees C, winds northwest, 20 km/hr. Kevin indeed is the first one to get airborne eastbound (from his own personal field in Keady, Ontario). Kevin leaves home a couple of days early in advance of a cold front that is bringing rain for the next few days. He arrives at Carleton Place, situated south west of Ottawa, to meet with Claude so they can make the original Monday morning departure on Labour Day. When the time comes, there is no way the group can make its original plan of flying to Montmagny, Que. for the night. The weak cold front Kevin managed to get ahead of is sweeping through and rain is expected here and there until tomorrow sometime. The best the group can do is for Claude and Kevin to hook up with Patrick in Mont-Tremblant and wait for the weather to improve. So Kevin and Claude spend Monday morning preparing for an early afternoon departure from Carleton Place at 2 p.m. It is tough going. Due to low clouds, the maximum altitude possible is 2,500 ASL. As you know, the St-Jovite Airport is situated in inhospitable terrain with mountains all around. Fully loaded and with detours to make in the valleys, the initial flight path is stretched too much. Claude’s aircraft runs out of gas at circuit altitude, with the St-Jovite Airport in sight on the other side of town. Fortunately, The St-Jovite area is surrounded with lakes, so Claude makes a dead-stick approach onto Lac Maskinongé, just south of town. Floats become very handy and the silent landing is done along the shore with nobody around noticing. Once in the water, Claude paddles his way to a nearby empty dock next to the Base Plein Air Mont-Tremblant. In the meantime, Claude’s situation makes Kevin very uncomfortable. “If Claude runs out of gas now, what about me?” he thinks. Claude urges him to continue flying direct to the airport, so to tell Patrick of what is happening. Praying all the way across town, Kevin finally gets over the St-Jovite Airport without a sputter from his engine. From the overhead position and without any

traffic in the circuit, he times his approach very well with minimum use of power. In the meantime, Claude is at the dock transferring fuel from the back seat to the main tank. Then, with his cell phone, he calls Patrick who is already in his car and on the way with Kevin. Ten minutes later, the three lads are together, laughing. Claude can now get into his Challenger and fly off Lac Maskinongé towards the airport. He does so and, minutes later, all three Challengers are reunited on firm ground. That’s enough excitement for one day. Patrick invites his friends to a great evening at the family cottage within walking distance from the airport. Tomorrow’s weather looks better and plans are drawn accordingly during the evening.

Day 2, Tuesday, Sept 6. Mostly cloudy, 19 degrees C, winds northeast 20 km/hr. Patrick is up early to prepare breakfast and get the many wheels in motion. Once the logistics are all done, the three planes can depart from St-Jovite at 10:30 a.m. The flight brings them straight to the Trois-Rivières (Que.) Airport where lunch and refuelling are accomplished. Before departing from Trois-Rivières, Kevin notices that his voltmeter is not working. This is not a big issue for the moment, so the group decides to continue towards Montmagny (Que). All goes well and the next flight towards Montmagny is made over the St. Lawrence River at 1,500 ASL. Unfortunately, Quebec Terminal does not allow the flight to go right through the Quebec

City area to destination. The flight is then diverted south to the St. Lambert (Que.) Airport, which gives the group the opportunity to revisit their old friend Jacques Gagné. After transferring gas from the back seats, the take off from St. Lambert is uneventful. About an hour later, all airplanes land gracefully in Montmagny. Once everything is packed up for the night, a taxi picks up the group to some fine sleeping accommodations downtown. Tomorrow’s activities are discussed for a while and everybody goes to bed at 11 p.m.

Day 3, Wednesday, Sept. 7. Cloudy, 20 degrees, winds northeast 10 km/hr. The first thing we do this morning is to go to the Canadian Tire “Aviation Department” to buy batteries for Claude and Kevin’s SPOT. Then we go to the airport to work on solving Kevin’s electrical problem. Unfortunately, the problem is more difficult to locate than expected. It seems that the voltmeter itself is the culprit. So it gets bypassed and the guys get airborne soon after lunch and have a nice flight along the St. Lawrence River to Rivièredu-Loup (Que). With main power restored, Kevin follows the group from Rivière-du-Loup southbound towards St. Leonard (New Brunswick). Once there, the local reception committee is out there to greet the travelers. Serge and Pierre do all they possibly can for the guys. That includes a ride to the Daigle Motel, the best overnight

accommodation in town. Kevin, at this time, is reminded to the fact Francophones, when they are together, are very talkative, and always using lots of expression in their tone of voices and with their hands. He does his best to listen and try to comprehend what is said around him. After a good meal at the Motel’s dining room, the eAPIS (electronic Advance Passenger Information System) work gets done on Claude’s portable computer. Tomorrow will be a big day.

Day 4, Thursday, Sept. 8. Sunny, 21 degrees C, winds northwest 10 km/hr. The group has no problem following a routine of getting up at 7 a.m., going to breakfast by 8 a.m. and being at the airport by 9 a.m. The first thing they do is to advise the U.S. Customs of their arrival later that day. They also file an international VFR flight plan with the Houlton (ME) International Airport. The flight to enter the U.S. goes exactly as planned. They land within two minutes of the planned landing time. The U.S. Customs, as always, are easy going and curious about these unusual travelers, asking lots of questions about these special “air vehicles.” They laugh, shake their heads, mostly in the “no” direction, and vanish away. The next flight from Houlton to Millinocket (ME) goes well, except for Patrick. He is concentrating so much on his RPM gauge reading too low that he forgets to lower his main gear down. He pays a heavy price for it: a lot of laughter and ribbing from his two companions. The trip continues and the fibreglass repair will wait. The last flight of the day from Millinocket to Greenville (ME) is over rough terrain, forcing the group to climb to 3,800 ASL to clear some of the mountains ahead. But what a nice view they have on the other side! Moosehead Lake, the biggest lake in the State of Maine, is just beautiful. The arrival at the airport is just in time to be able to park the airplanes, rush downtown, register quickly and climb aboard the “Katahdin,” the biggest cruise ship on the lake, for an open-bar evening supper and a moonlight cruise on Moosehead Lake. • continued on page B-8

It appears that more of us need to think about what our weather limits should be, and then develop the mindset that we will turn back when we reach those limits. A ceiling of 1,000 feet may be acceptable if there is no chance of precipitation or fog, and the visibility is at least three miles. If there is a chance of precipitation, maybe we should require a ceiling of 3,000 feet, or even 5,000 feet in hilly or mountainous terrain. Any time the visibility is forecast to be below three miles or drops below three miles, we should be thinking of postponing a flight or turning back. Precipitation or fog can lower a ceiling by 2,000 feet or more, and lower the visibility by two miles or more in an instant. We also need to spend some time looking at our maps in the planning stages of a flight and we need to think about safe altitudes. We must determine the difference between what is legal and what is safe, and we must decide if we would rather be late is this life or early in the next.

Fresh from the factory Merlin GT sporting a tricycle gear.

The tricycle gear makes a return! Tricycle gear airplanes are so popular: to not manufacturer one these days, simply put is, “kicking against the pricks” as quoted from the Bible. In today’s English the quote would more likely read “kicking against the Politicians!” It has taken a couple of thousand years, but conventional wording, thinking and meaning has seen some changes. Regarding the word “conventional” Mr. Webster says: “conforming or adhering to accepted standards, as of conduct or taste.” Regarding airplanes it used to be that “Conventional Gear” meant a “Tail Dragger” and there are some that say it still does, however since the 1950s more and more aircraft have gone tri-gear and now it is more common (conventional) to see new airplanes with a training wheel… er, uh, oops, I meant to say a nose wheel. So much for the old by quote “Real men fly Wayne ...” Winters Although I have never seen it, apparently there is a Merlin in Ontario that was converted to a “nose wheel” aircraft several years ago. We had a prototype that we developed a couple of years ago and it handled, taxied, and flew extremely well. Our students

loved it, because it was so much easier to handle during takeoff and landing, than the tail dragger. The problem was though, that after 50 student hours the welded cluster, that held the nose wheel and tire in place, cracked and then later let go (On walk a-rounds I missed seeing the crack)! The result was a shortened propeller, some unhappy fibreglass and a thoroughly ticked designer/instructor/owner. The nose wheel was removed and thrown as far as the eye can see. The main round spring steel gear was also removed and the standard bungee chord (shock absorption) gear was put on along with a Matco tail wheel. The airplane has another 500 hours on it, as a tail dragger. My thinking was - never again! Early last spring a long time patron/visitor to our air field decided to see what it would be like to have an inverted flight in his recently acquired Continental powered Zenair 701. The inherent problem with the manoeuvre was that it took place after a landing and although now inverted, the take off, skidding along the roof, proved to be most difficult. As a result we had an

opportunity to have a real good look at the nose gear, even though with its 90 degree bend, it was more suited for landing on the side of a Mountain rather than a flat runway. Its simplicity and bungee chord oleo system looked intriguing. A little research showed that except for a limited few problems there were oodles of them out there flying without incident. Right then, a long time flying enthusiast, Garry Van Eerden was talking about us building him a new Merlin GT aircraft. Garry started hanging around our airport in 1990, saw us do the test flying on the original EZ Flyer in 1992, learned to fly in 1999 and bought one of our EZ Flyers in 2001. He had been leaning towards

more power and a fully enclosed cabin with a baggage compartment big enough for a tent, cooler, etc. plus cabin heat for those chilly mornings. He wanted a tricycle gear airplane because he had always liked the looks of them, however, if we would not build it he was considering a tail dragger. He checked out other nose wheel aircraft, but the roomy cockpit of the Merlin and its’ ruggedness made him lean in our direction, even though he wanted to sit forward on three instead of back on two. After looking closely at the Zenair 701 gear it became apparent that it would not be too difficult for us to accommodate one like it in ours. The pilot of the injured 701 (above) was kind enough to lend us his nose gear and we started sizing it up on a new Merlin airframe. As it turned out we were able to fit it quite nicely and by welding the brackets into steel, instead of riveting to aluminum, we have come up with a super strong assembly. We ordered a new factory front gear and it bolted right into place. The next thing was deciding what we were going to do for a main gear without having to build a truss system including all the reinforcing that would be necessary, as we did in our first Merlin tri-gear. The simple answer was to build a readymade aluminum gear from Grove Aircraft in California. We had to change the specs slightly, from the available tail dragger version, to match up with the nose wheel and make the aircraft sit slightly lower. With the help of Garry, the new owner, we pegged it and the gear sits perfectly. • continued on next page

COPA FLIGHT

JANUARY 2012

Tricycle gear aircraft The aircraft is powered by a 100-hp Rotax 912s, with a Medium Ivo 76-inch propeller and GSC spinner. It is painted in burnt orange with tan seats and carpet. Garry and I are really pleased with the looks of the wood grain instrument panel which ties in the orange and browns. Every time you make changes to an aircraft one has to wonder how the changes will affect its performance and if some undesirable characteristics will raise their ugly head. Our questions were: did we peg the weight and balance with the new gear... was the aircraft going to rotate easily for take off... what scary stuff was lurking for landing... in the air was the nose wheel drag going to create problems...etc.? I really have grown to hate, yes hate, being a test pilot over the past several years. It is not that I have ever had a problem on any of our own airplanes, but have had a few thrills test flying for other people - that is why I don’t do it anymore. I hate to push my luck and that fear has even carried over to my own airplanes. As careful as you try and be there are still unknown factors. For this reason I always do a bunch of test hops without getting over five feet AGL, and then before the actual flight have a real good look at all the controls and mechanicals of the aircraft. I highly recommend doing the test hop method before flying, but offer caution - make sure you know how to test hop and land safely before the end of the runway in another airplane prior getting into the “test� airplane, or have someone else do it for you. When it came time to fly, so did the wind. It was not bad close to the ground, but the forecast was for super gusty conditions (Calgary Chinook Winds) just off the ground. I took off on Runway 28 and no sooner got up and the forecast winds of 20 to 40 knots took effect. I did a “white knuckle� circuit which didn’t feel bad at all. On final track for Runway 28 my heading was more like 320 degrees, but the wind “backed� and reduced intensity for the last 100 feet AGL and the tri-gear settled on very nicely. It felt good enough for another go around, and I did. I was really pleased with how it flew. Trimmed out for hands off flying, the adjustable elevator trim remained almost at zero. There was a very slight

• continued from previous page

amount of right stick with it being off centre, which is easily compensated for with aileron adjustments. The balance of rudder pedal travel to nose wheel response (on the ground) was just right. Where the tail dragger takes almost a runway width to turn (without using brakes) this one was turning in 1/3 of the width. The acid test was to take the new owner up in his new airplane. This was now the next day and we were using runway 16. Under full power (pulling 5,700 rpm) the nose wheel came right up and a couple of seconds later we were airborne. It was lifting off right about the same place the tail dragger does, but much easier to control because our main wheels were behind our butts (centre of gravity) instead of ahead of them. We flattened out, taking advantage of ground effect, and then started our climb. Everything was the same as it is in the tail dragger version, likewise for levelling and setting up for cruise. With the nose wheel and tundra tire hanging out up front I expected a loss of airspeed, but at 5,000 rpm where we normally cruise - we were getting 85 mph indicated airspeed at 4,000 feet ASL. This is right on what we get in the tail dragger. Spooling up the rpm to 5,500, which is the maximum continuous cruise, the ASI went up to 105 IAS. At 4,000 feet that translates into a true airspeed of 112 mph! This airplane has streamlined wing struts, but big fat tundra tires. With regular size tires and wheel pants I am confident that this would easily be a 120-mph airplane. Not bad, especially considering it will safely fly all day long at 35-38 mph, and stalls happen between 28 and 32 mph. When we came back our smiles were such that we both looked like a couple of Disney’s Cheshire Cats from Alice in Wonderland. The Merlin (tail dragger) is a rudder dominated airplane and when doing “aileron only� turns there is a bit of adverse yaw, as with most airplanes. With slight use of the rudder it smartens right up while the EZ Flyer, that uses the exact same wing and tail feathers, hardly has any adverse yaw at all. To my total surprise the tricycle gear Merlin has very little adverse yaw. The only thing I can attribute it to is the nose wheel

hanging down in the front and acting like the keel on a yacht. In the air we had the elevator trimmed for hands off and once on the ground and out of the airplane we saw that the adjustable trim tab, on the elevator, was right at zero. Wow, that makes you feel good, as a designer/ manufacturer/builder, when all the changes come together and the trim finds itself neutral without shifting any weight or making any adjustments! Our guardian angels were working overtime! This is going to sound like a commercial, but I do not know of any other airplane that does all the things this one does, for the price and time to build. The other day a student, who had been flying conventional airplanes, was surprised that we do not adjust the trim for takeoff, or adjust it for landing. I am so used to not doing it that I forget that I had to make those adjustments when I flew conventional aircraft. Even the difference in full to empty fuel tanks requires no trim change. Our fuel tanks (two 10 imperial gallon tanks) are right on the C of G. Trimmed for straight and level flight I showed the student how adding full power makes it climb and pulling the power off makes it descend — at about our normal climb or descent rates — without touching the stick. This article is getting a bit long so I will not give all the performance data and a complete price list yet. Next month I will have all those figures and more pictures for anyone that is interested. At that time I will also give a bit of history on the Merlin, the changes it has undergone, and the changes we have made since taking over in 1996. I will say this though, this airplane will fly very nice on a Rotax 582 65-hp engine, just like it’s sister the Merlin tail dragger. The kit takes 350 to 450 realistic hours to build and the basic firewall back kit is near $22,000. If you would like to see this airplane fly — tune up YouTube on Google and enter Merlin GT in the search box.

JANUARY 2012

Big Splash-in • continued from page B-2

However, there is a price to pay, as all three men have to set up their own tent under the wing in pitch black conditions, an occasion for more laughter, indeed. Finally, exhaustion takes over and all three rest until morning sunlight or the avgas alarm clock as it became known to be called.

Day 5, Friday, Sept. 9. Mostly sunny, 20 degrees C, winds northwest 20 gusting 30 km/hr. Today is a lazy day and the guys need it. They get up and hop into a shuttle bus to town with their toilet kits to be able to wash and shave downtown at the Town Hall. Curiously enough, there is no shower or washing facilities at the airport. In 38 years of organizing this event, the only concession to comfort and hygiene provided to the campers under the wing are portable toilets. After a solid breakfast, the flyers find the registration desk at the downtown docks, get their “Welcome kit” from the organizers and get back to the airport via the shuttle bus, a road distance of about five kilometres. That’s where they stay for the rest of the day. They work on their machines, have lunch on site and have a great siesta in the afternoon. Come supper time, a big hangar is suddenly transformed into a giant open-bar Meet-and-Greet, followed by the most succulent lobster supper one can imagine. At supper time, they meet with longtime friends Yvonne and Henry McKinley from Honey Harbour, Ont. They also meet Ben and Linda Brown, local residents from Pittsfield, Maine. Ben is the region’s Just Aircraft dealer and has bought some PuddleJumper floats from Patrick before. It is a pleasure to spend the evening in such great company.

Day 6, Saturday, Sept. 10. Mostly sunny, 22 degrees C, winds northwest 25 gusting 35 km/hr. Having had a great time last night, the group is a bit slow getting to town to wash and have breakfast. Today is contest day, where seaplane pilots demonstrate their skills in a series of competitions. At mid-morning, the winds are strong and white caps are everywhere on the surface of the water. With these marginal and very difficult conditions Patrick is uncertain about competing, but he registers to a few competitions nevertheless before heading back to the airport to decide if he will have a go at it. Kevin and Claude will be the dock hands, if required. Later, Patrick’s name is heard on the speaker system. And there he is, flying around with the big boys, trying his luck at the spot landing contest. In front of a crowd of thousands all around the lake, Patrick places second. Patrick then gets to shore. Wheels are put down in the water, the aircraft powers

up the ramp, Kevin and Claude watching the wing tips and clearing the crowd. It goes very well and Patrick is immediately swamped with people and questions about his amphibious Challenger. One hour or so later, Patrick is called over the speaker system to participate in the shortest take off contest, where again, he places second. The same thing again: Patrick comes onto dry land and gets swamped with curious people, most of them confessing that they had never seen an amphibious Challenger before. Patrick is clearly the show centre and star attraction. He even gets interviewed by the Bangor Daily News (http://bangordailynews.com/2011/09/11/news/piscataquis/pilots-show-skills-at-international-seaplane-fly-in-ingreenville/?ref=videos Around 4 p.m., Patrick gets back into the water and flies back to the Greenville Airport. Kevin and Claude catch the next shuttle bus and meet again with a tired Patrick who is happy that everything went so well. Some general maintenance is done on all three Challengers, leading up to supper time and another great feast for 300 guests in the same big hangar as last night. It starts with an open-bar session with appetizers of all sorts, followed by a giant all-you-can-eat buffet. At awards presentation time, Patrick gets his two trophies for placing second in the spot landing and the short takeoff contests. On top of that, the contest organizers see fit to present Patrick with the “Sportsman of the Year” Award, crowning the pilot who most impressed the judges with his/her overall performance this year. In front of a crowd of hundreds of seaplane friends and colleagues, Patrick was justifiably beaming with pride!

Day 7, Sunday, Sept. 11. Sunny, 23 degrees C, winds southwest 10 km/hr. The International Seaplane Fly-in was a great experience, but it is time to get moving. After waking to the avgas alarm the group take down their tents and pack up their planes. Rather than lose time going into town for breakfast, the flyers decide to leave early knowing that breakfast will not be hard to find at the next airport. So they get airborne by 8 a.m., on their way due south to Pittsfield (Maine). Ben Brown, the Just Aircraft dealer, is based in Pittsfield and is on site when the guys land. Eh, here is our ride for breakfast in town! Ben is the most gracious host and even joins the group for a bite. He brings the guys back to the airport, salutes everyone and soon disappears. A few moments later, as the engines are set in motion, Ben comes back with another special character and old flying friend of Patrick, Wayne Ouellette, better known as the famous “Wayne from Maine.” Patrick takes pleasure in seeing Wayne, but keeps it short as to not delay his two flying companions. From there, it is a quick flight to the Atlantic coast and Rockland (Maine) appears in view. The view is spectacular. A picturesque coastal shoreline broken up by islands and dotted with towns, their marinas filled with boats. After a good landing and a quick refuelling exercise, the trio gets airborne again. This time, they bypass their intended point of landing at Wiscasset (Maine) to stretch their flight all the way to Limington Harmon (Maine) Airport. This is a quaint little airport nestled in the surrounding hills, trees all around, a row of hangers lining one side of the runway.

Again, they refuel quickly to get airborne towards the day’s final destination, Ossipee Lake (New Hampshire). Patrick is well connected and knows this couple, Anne and Barry Huston, who live right on the lake. They would love to be “invaded” by three float-equipped Challengers and they have the front beach property for this to be done. So the three Challengers land and water taxi to this natural beach and docking area where their Challengers will be safe for the night. You just can’t ask for more. Lake Ossipee is New Hampshire’s sixth largest lake with a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains. Once each flyer is assigned a sleeping area, they all have a chance to freshen up and look civilized once more. Then it is a departure to a local restaurant for a great feast and plenty of stories to be told. Anne and Barry are wonderful hosts, but the flyers are fading fast from the day’s full dose of excitement. So they retire early.

Day 8, Monday, Sept. 12. Sunny, 24 degrees C, winds southwest 10 km/hr. Another beautiful day greets the flyers. A refuelling run is performed at the nearest gas station and Barry watches the guys get ready for the next flight. The day’s destination, Keene (New Hampshire), is only one flight away, so the group enjoys Anne and Barry’s hospitality until early afternoon and even go for a swim in the cold water of the lake while looking at the majestic Mount Washington in the distance. Then, the Challenger flight gets airborne, heading southwest into a light breeze. • continued on next page

Day 9, Tuesday, Sept. 13. Mostly sunny, 24 degrees, winds southwest 20 gusting 30 km/hr. The valley is completely fogged in but Clarke says it always clears by midmorning, and sure enough he is right. Once replenished, they get a ride with their host to the airport for a morning of local flying. Keene airport is busy with several jet aircraft landing and departing during the morning. Clark is especially happy with his local flying with Claude. It is the first time he flies his Challenger with anyone in the back. As for Kevin and Patrick, they are given a golden opportunity to go flying

proper celebration at the hotel’s pub for what is a very successful adventure together. Tomorrow will be a big day, as everyone will try to make it home. So the eAPIS timings are revised and lights are out at 10.

Big Splash-in The reason to go to Keene is to meet another of Patrick’s friends, Clark and Joanne Dexter. Clark is a retired optometrist, who is also a commercial pilot and flight instructor. As a retirement project, Clark just completed building an amphibious Challenger, registered N8711N. Upon arrival, the three Challengers are parked quickly and the group is shown Clark’s aircraft called the “Geezasoarus.” Of course, three sharp sets of Challenger-trained eyes pick up a few things in the way the airplane is set up. The next two hours are spent adjusting this and that to Clark’s delight. Then Claude offers to take it up and offer his assessment on how the machine behaves. Clark is interested to know how his plane compares with other Challengers. It takes only one circuit for Claude to “certify” Clark’s airplane as a perfectly normal amphibious Challenger to fly. Claude even proposes a few circuits with Clark, but time flies and Claude’s offer is accepted for tomorrow morning. A short drive in the surrounding hills brings everyone to a beautiful house with a terrace view that spans the whole valley. Clark immediately gets going on the barbecue, cooking steaks for everyone. In the meantime, Joanne makes sure the three flyers get comfortable with their assigned sleeping quarters. The casual evening is Clark’s occasion to get so many of his questions answered. The guys are only too happy to provide all the Challenger expertise Clark is looking for.

with Adrian Wood, just three doors away from Clark’s hangar; aboard Adrian’s nice Lake LA250 Amphibian aircraft registered N8408T. The boys had met Adrian who was camping next to them at the Greenville Airport, not realizing that they would meet again so soon! It is time to get going to the next destination, another of Patrick’s friends to visit in nearby New York State. Kevin runs into a little bit of trouble when he attempts to start his engine: his throttle cable has slipped. With Clark’s help and tools, the problem is fixed in 15 minutes. All climb aboard for a second time and systems are now “GO” on all machines. The flight is a direct one through the mountains, across a narrow part of Vermont to the famous Hudson River Valley. The mountains are lush green with vegetation and provide a perfect backdrop for pictures. In the middle of the Hudson River is a private island with an airstrip on it. August Field, owned by August Ferenczi, is a pure walk down Memory Lane: Old Ford Model T truck, old tractors lying around, old Piper Cubs sitting in a barn without any radios in them, etc. One exception is Bill Scheidegger. He flies a brand-new, day-glow red SkyRanger that he and his son built, mounted on PuddleJumper amphibious floats. Having heard that the guys would be around the region, Bill and Trudy had invited Patrick and his two friends over to their place. Their hospitality is legendary. As the guys all have their own bed supplies, Bill simply opens the door to the

family’s large camper trailer, which offers three queen-size beds, one for each of the travelers. This is like paradise again! For some reason, the guys don’t stay very long in the trailer. A full case of icy cold Molson’s Canadian beer and a whole pile of barbecue burgers waiting for them must be the reason. Later, the guys gather around Claude’s portable computer to enter their individual eAPIS details into the DHS (Director of Homeland Security) System. About one hour later, all receive their authorization to proceed out of the country tomorrow.

Day 10, Wednesday, Sept. 14 Mainly sunny, 23 degrees, winds northeast 15 to 20 km/hr. No alarm clock is necessary. Following a heartfelt ‘Au revoir,’ the Canadian friends are airborne at 10:30 a.m. It is a wonderful flight over the whole length of Lake George and the whole length of Lake Champlain. The flight lands on the 10,000 foot runway at the Plattsburg International Airport (an alternate landing site for the space shuttle) for refuelling and then continues towards Massena (New York) International Airport. At 3:11 p.m., they are turned away by the Canadian Customs Officer who “needs” a minimum two-hour notice for international flight arrivals, stating that they close at 5 p.m. The boys take that as an opportunity to have an evening “on the town” and a

Rain in a.m., clearing in p.m., 20 degrees C, winds northwest 20 gusting 40 km/hr. The day starts with rain and low 800foot ceilings. The conditions improve enough to be able to go, but Claude has some air breather issues. His air filter is clogged with water, so the group waits for Claude to take his air filter off the carburetors. By 08:30 a.m., the three Challengers are airborne and on their way across the St. Lawrence River to the Cornwall (Ont.) Airport, just minutes away on the Canadian side of the river. Once on the ground, no Customs Officer shows up, so the guys call back and each receives a clearance confirmation number to be inscribed in their logbook. The ceiling is still low, so the guys are given a ride to the nearest Tim Hortons, a sure sign that they are on Canadian soil. Soon past lunch time, they perform their last three-ship takeoff from Cornwall. From that point on, Patrick goes northeast towards Mont-Tremblant while Kevin and Claude go northwest towards Smiths Falls (Ont.). Westward progress is slow and Kevin wonders if he will be able to make it home today. Claude invites him to stay with him one more day in Carleton Place, as tomorrow’s weather will improve and winds will decrease. Kevin still decides to forge ahead. After a quick refuelling at the Smiths Falls Airport, the last two take to the air, Kevin westbound and Claude northbound towards their home fields. Later that day, Claude and Patrick make it home safely, but not yet Kevin. Two and a half hours east of Smiths Falls, with the Peterborough airport in view Kevin runs into a line of clouds with precipitation and fine ice crystals. Although the Peterborough airport is in view, a couple of miles of corn fields, bean fields, a river and some power lines separate Kevin from the airport and the engine is starting to run rough. Fortunately, right beneath him is a smooth, clear field and Kevin decides to make a precautionary landing and notifies Peterborough UNICOM. • continued on next page

After landing the engine is checked, run-up with no problems and as the sun is back shining Kevin decides to continue his flight. Unfortunately, Kevin has landed in a freshly plowed field and the plane will not move. After a few minutes hike, the farmer and his tractor are hired to flatten a runway and in no time Kevin is back in the air and 20 minutes later on the runway in Peterborough where an official looking vehicle escorts Kevin to the terminal building. Kevin is advised that Peterborough UNICOM only received part of his radio transmission, hearing only that he was going down in a field east of the airport. They had then contacted Trenton and started their own search in a vehicle. After a few minutes of explanation and a phone call to Trenton, Kevin ties up his plane and is offered a ride into Peterborough for a well deserved rest at a local hotel. The following day Kevin continues his trip without incident and three hours later his plane is tucked safely inside his hangar.

Conclusion Except for Kevin who had to fly two extra days (an extra 500 miles and 11.3 hours) to and from home, the trip covered a total of 1,280 miles (2,060 kms) in 11 days for a total of 31.3 hours of engine time, for an average speed of 41 miles/hour (66 km/hour). All participants made it home safely. What can we conclude from this adventure? We certainly can say that long-range group travel with airplanes, no matter the size of the airplanes, presents a lot of adventure. From one day to the next, you have to remain flexible and open-minded because you really don’t know what will happen to you and your companions during the very next flight.

Patrick is inches and seconds away from a second-place result at the spot landing contest on Moosehead Lake.

And that is part of the attraction. A big advantage of travelling with a group is that you can draw on each other’s experience and expertise. You help each other, which is what makes the trip successful. You share in the conversation at the end of the day and fall asleep content, looking forward to tomorrow and the challenges it will bring. For more than 20 years now, the International Challenger Owners Association has organized yearly ultralight group adventures like the one above. By now, we hope you realize that the amount of fun and thrill you derive from adventure flying has nothing to do with the size of your airplane. In fact, we dare say it is inversely proportional: the smaller your airplane, the bigger your fun and thrill of flying it. Experience is a great teacher. If you feel you don’t have enough experience to do long trips like this one, start small. For example, you could easily tag along with your friends

and fly on some local daytime trip to a new – to you – place. After a while, new airports look just like any of your old familiar airports: they are a predictable combination of runways, taxiways and hangars. By the way, if this story has piqued your interest and made you curious about where next year’s Challenger float flying adventure may lead, imagine this: not east, not west, but waaaay down deep, south. Think Alabama in October… Yep, the continent is hardly big enough for Challenger ultralights. Finally, we shall leave you with one last thought: if you are one of the many pilots who rarely flies more than a few miles from your home airport we challenge you to explore your country, gain new experiences and friends that will last a lifetime. What is stopping you?

but in the mean time you will have requested the help of many professionals and activated external emergency systems that are there for your use. Contact ATS and state: “I am declaring an emergency” (or Mayday, Mayday); your registration; squawk 7700; your location; the nature of your emergency; your intentions; the number of persons on board; the amount of fuel on board; and any dangerous goods if carried. Determine the best airport to use. Is it near? Does it have CFR? Do I have to overfly a populated area? Do I need to make an off airport landing? Is it better to be on the ground now, rather than trying to reach a maintenance or home base? You owe it to yourself, your passengers and the folks living under your flightpath to plan, train and think about emergencies before they happen. Ask yourself what would I do? I recommend that you use all your resources and don’t hesitate to ask for help!

November 11th Thank you to John J. Macready, vice-president of Chapter 85 of the Recreational Aircraft Association located at the Delta Heritage Airpark, for once again organizing the Remembrance Day Ceremonies. The Boundary Bay Flying Club, COPA Flight 5, and the Royal Canadian Air Cadets from 655 Squadron also assisted with the day’s activities. Mary Swain and her volunteers served soup and refreshments following the ceremony. COPA was invited to lay a wreath as part of this year’s ceremony. More than 100 people were in attendance at the CAK3 flagstaff for what has become a tradition in the Vancouver lower mainland aviation community. Low clouds and high winds prevented many of the planned flypast activities, however two groups did manage to conduct their flypast under difficult conditions. Well done to all who participated. • continued on next page

Plane talk George McNutt Congratulations to Captain George McNutt on receiving the Ed Bachelor “Aviation Citizen of the Year Award - in recognition for his many years of dedication to aviation.” This award was presented by the Langley Aero Club, COPA Flight 175, at their Annual General Meeting held on November 19th at the Langley Museum of Flight. George is still active in the RV & Langley aviation community. His impressive career spans from his learning to fly at Carp, Ontario in the 1950s; to being an Air Traffic Controller; to being a Boeing 747 Captain for CP Air; to owning numerous aircraft, including building two Van’s RV airplanes; to being a past COPA

• continued from previous page

Director for BC & YT; to organizing the fly-in portion of the annual Langley Airport Day each June; to being the leader of the “SnowFlakes” formation flight; and providing instruction for the annual Langley rust remover. George’s career is impeccable and his dedication to the Canadian aviation community makes him most deserving of this award. It was nice to see that both his parents were in attendance to witness the presentation. Well done, George!

Boundary Bay On a Sunday afternoon in November, my old friend Jack Pomerleau, who is a director on the Boundary Bay Airport’s management team, gave me a

tour of CZBB and an update on the airport’s development activities. Wow, lots of current and planned construction is underway. See www.czbb.com for a full update. The SkyHawk restaurant, located in the beautiful new terminal, was doing a booming Sunday afternoon business and there was lots of flying activity to watch. A new railway overpass on 80th Avenue is nearing completion and will be a huge bonus to the airport by allowing employees and visitors to avoid train delays and provide a new entrance to the airport. In addition to the full into plane fuel service, the airport has located one of the nicest new self serve card-lock refuelling sys-

tems that I have seen. This installation is located just west of the Heli One hangar and east of the new terminal building. The price for the self-serve fuel is one of the best in the lower mainland. The cumulative effect of all the improvements at the airport are really starting to make ZBB look like a first-class reliever airport to YVR. If you haven’t been there recently, I suggest that you

drop in and take a look. Thanks for the tour, Jack. May you have: “Tight Floats & Tailwinds”

understand how it of any benefit beyond outright grounding (After all, do you really need a license if there is another pilot willing to take you flying and hand you the controls?). My restriction was delivered in the form of a registered letter. Inside was the explanation of suspension of my privileges to “with or as copilot,” a temporary restricted medical certificate & pilot’s license reminiscent of the pre-passport style we all used to have, and an official letter with several bullets outlining the restrictions of flying “with or as.” Incidentally, I am required to carry that letter as part of my license “bundle.” Unfortunately, I didn’t think to bring the letter to Yellowknife but as I recall it stipulated that I fly with another current, medically fit, Canadian pilot with the appropriate ratings and type rating for the aircraft. The other pilot must also have “incapacitation training.” Other than the included pamphlet entitled Pilot Incapacitation which I will touch on shortly, there was no further reference to this “incapacitation training.” I searched high and low on the TC website for a description but found no references (other than the pamphlet itself.) Eventually I just emailed TC and was given the following clarification: Training for incapacitation: nothing specific for recreational pilots. The second pilot needs to be told what the likelihood and form of incapacitation might be incurred and what to do to get the pilot thus affected to care... In the commercial section training is done… the outline of duties to be discussed are contained in the [pamphlet]. Without further ado, let’s have a look at the official TC publication on this topic.

From Yellowknife, Happy 2012 Canadian Owners and Pilots!

Pilot incapacitation Amusingly, the URL on the front of the pamphlet (already once stickered with a post-publication correction), proves to be a broken link. The quickest way to find the webpage is to Google “TP 11629”, but in case that doesn’t work the URL at the time of publication is: http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/pub lications/tp11629-menu-5518.htm At first I thought the pamphlet was a bit silly (In fact I have to confess I laughed out loud a couple of times while reading it). On further reflection though, I realized the value of what TC is trying to say with this. In fact I am now of the opinion that any pilot who flies dual con-

Have you the 3-Ds to build your own? For movies, it appears that 3-D is all the rage. But, what about 3-D for airplanes? Perhaps you decided, as a New Year’s Resolution, to construct an AmateurBuilt Aircraft. This is where 3-D comes into play. Before you spend any money ask yourself if you have 3-Ds; devotion, determination and desire. Without the 3-Ds you will be hard-pressed to get very far with the project. If you have the 3-Ds, the other factors will fall into place more readily. Think about the cost. Sure, the price of the kit seems reasonable. What about the by taxes, freight, tools and Rem equipment, engine, prop, Walker avionics, inspections, paint, upholstery and a whole bunch of other “little things” that can add up to big bucks! Perhaps the biggest factor of all is your family. Are your wife and kids going to miss you during the time spent in the shop working on the airplane? Is it possible to get them involved? Others have done so with good results for the whole family (See EAAs Sport Aviation

magazine, the November 2011 issue). Have you examined homebuilts on the line at events such as AirVenture Oshkosh and other events where aircraft of all shapes and sizes are on display? Have you spoken, heart-to-heart, with a builder/pilot of the aircraft of your dreams? Did he lay it on the line as to what the aircraft will do or do you feel he was trying to sell you something? There are designs out there that have earned a reputation for quality kits and fine-flying aircraft. Some others, not so. Next to your home an airplane is a big investment so perhaps there are two more “Ds” to consider – due diligence. Get the facts before putting down big “D” number six – the dough!! Regardless of which aircraft you are going to construct they all are built under the same regulations as outlined in the Handbook which is available, at no cost to you, from the EAA Canadian Council. This is the only thing concerning your airplane that will not cost you any money. The Handbook is intended to give you

details regarding the documentation of the construction of your aircraft, as required by Transport Canada (TC) in the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs). The Handbook includes a copy of the regulations, inspection requirements, copies of paperwork, hints for inspections, the standards to be met and other information that will help you, step by step, to obtain the Special Certificate of Airworthiness for your Amateur-Built Aircraft.

Rem Walker learned to fly in 1946. His first project was a Jodel D-9 CF-PFB started in 1958 and flying in 1963. Most recent completion is a joint project with Bob Meyer, a 1929 Gipsy Moth completed and flown in 2005.

trols should take five minutes to read this pamphlet and consider the wisdom within. Indeed if it hasn’t already, it is something that should be incorporated into new pilot training. While intended to be an instruction booklet for a safety (co)pilot, the reality is that most GA fliers are far more likely to encounter this sort of problem (unresponsive person slumped over the controls), while flying with non-pilots. I would like to take a moment to highlight one section of the pamphlet which is something we should perhaps be inserting into the emergency procedures checklist we carry inside our brains? The mnemonic CHASE may help organize your actions: Control the aircraft (Do whatever is necessary to maintain control of the aircraft). Help! Declare an emergency and alert other crew (Or passengers!). Assess the situation (Consider fuel level, closer airports, weather etc). Secure the victim and cockpit (Remove the victim if possible, or slide their seat full back, lock the shoulder harness to prevent them from falling forward, etc). Explain your plan to ATC and other crew members (Add an extra margin of safety for your situation and abnormal operating conditions. Will you shutdown on the runway or taxi to a rescue area to meet emergency vehicles?). I’m not sure that particular acronym works for me personally, but I think the concepts are sound. Unfortunately my column just isn’t long enough to accommodate all of the ideas this little publication raises, which is why I am highly recommending pilots take the time and look up the full text on the TC website. Five minutes now could save a life one day. That’s it for this month. Personally I have my fingers crossed that February 2012 sees me getting up into the great blue yonder once again. For you aviation enthusiasts still able to participate in whatever activities you enjoy most, ensure you make them priorities in 2012. You just never know when circumstances might change, and let’s face it: life is short! As always I welcome your questions and feedback. Until next time, stay safe and happy flying! See you in the skies!

By Akky Mansikka Twelve 99s attended a Dessert Reception for Madame Snowbird on November 4th at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton, Ontario. The Canadian Women in Aviation organized the event. The guest speaker, Lt. Col. Maryse Carmichael, was the first female pilot to join Canada’s prestigious Snowbirds and is now the Snowbirds’ commander. The highlight for us were the videos of the Snowbirds during practice and in performance, from inside the cockpit. From the pilot’s perspective, the graceful manoeuvres were not so graceful, as the CT-114 Tutor jets rolled, snapped and bounced around violently, one minute wingtip to wingtip, the next pulling away in all directions incurring G forces allowed for only 20 seconds. Maryse’s speech inspired not only pilots in the audience, but also several kids who sat enthralled. Canada’s aerobatic precision team is in good hands with Maryse at the helm and the current fleet of jets are cleared to fly until at least 2020.

Fond farewell Remembering Bonn Svensson By Peter Sleeman Aviation has lost a great talent in the passing of Bonn Svensson at Comox on Oct. 15, 2011. Born in Sweden July 26, 1947, Bonn grew up in the small town of Eskiltuna, joining the army after grade school, and eventually entering his metalworker apprenticeship. Having completed a long apprenticeship in Sweden as an automotive carriage builder, Bonn developed an ability to perform magic in metal forming and fabrication, skills which are rarely found in the aviation industry today.

Bonn Svensson 1947-2011

He immigrated to Canada at age 27 in 1974, where he first arrived in Winnipeg, staying only 10 days, yearning to go back to Sweden; he was persuaded to try Calgary, with the promise of Chinooks and warmer weather. Bonn remained in Calgary and was employed in auto body repairs and rebuilding, specializing in antique/classic cars and married there in July 1976. He became involved in aviation after being hired by Gerry

Stauffer of Stauffer Aviation in the mid 1980’s to rebuild the engine of Gerry’s 1929 Dodge. So impressed were Stauffer’s with Bonn’s efficient, fast and impeccable workmanship that Gerry convinced Bonn to learn the trade of aero engine overhaul. Acquiring the AME Cat. D license, Bonn later went on to involvement in airframe structural repairs when his extraordinary metal forming skills became apparent and he subsequently qualified for the Cat. B license as well. It was at this point in his career that Bonn first became involved in warbird restoration and maintenance, with such aircraft types as the Sea Fury and Mustang for people such as Neil McClain of Nanton. In November 1993, Bonn moved to Miracle Beach, Vancouver Island, while building his own house in Courtenay. Many will know Bonn for his years of restoration of the Y2K Spitfire project for the Comox Air Force Museum. Since the project at its commencement consisted of assorted junkyard salvage, this essentially meant hand forming and building the fuselage from damaged components used as patterns and from blueprints. Anyone familiar with this aircraft will appreciate that it consists of numerous complex shapes and compound curves and makes few concessions to mass production. Bonn formed the centre section structure from hand-made hardwood forming blocks that he fabricated himself from the junk yard specimens, hand hammering the aluminum alloy in the soft state and then having the finished structure heat-treated subsequently by Boeing’s in Seattle. Anyone who has seen this

At left: Many will know Bonn for his years of restoration of the Y2K Spitfire project for the Comox Air Force Museum.

completed fuselage will appreciate the exceptional level of skill involved in its creation. Although Bonn was a “spit and polish� kind of guy when it came to aircraft finishing this sentiment did not extend easily to acceptance of the bureaucracy and pomp of the military structure with which he had to deal at the museum.

After completing the fuselage, Bonn decided to strike out on his own in 2009 and to set up his own warbird restoration facility. This led to the creation of “Bonn’s Aircraft Restoration� AMO in 2010, based at the Campbell River airport. Tragically he was just getting busy when he was diagnosed with advanced, untreatable lung

cancer the summer of 2011. An iron man to the end, Bonn kept on working, finishing the rebuild of a wrecked Cessna 185 two weeks before his death. And so passes a set of trade skills and knowledge which is essentially not being duplicated in the modern aviation industry and also more significantly, a great friend and happy spirit.

emotional level appropriately for the lowering of the flags, reading the verses, Why Remember, The Ode, in Flanders Field, and the laying of the Wreaths. Some present spoke of loved one’s lost in the wars, and some inspiration for the future. Whilst the poor weather precluded fly-bys over the Vancouver Cenotaphs, east of the Fraser River was brighter, and Delta’s ceremony was graced by overflights of two separate Warbird formations, the Harvards and The Yak/Nanchengs, who had visited numerous other ceremonies around the Lower Mainland. I was particularly honoured to be being asked to give my ‘City at War’ slide presentation to Vancouver’s Templeton Secondary School. They have a wonderful theatre, and the students were very attentive, a number of them coming by after with questions and thanks. To provide a full life perspective and context of war’s terrible effects on ordinary people, my show covers the period from my parent’s childhood, through WWII, the aftermath, and how the sacrifice of those lost, allowed my generation to have a future. The lesson being that somehow, humanity must learn not to repeat these terrible mistakes. Sigh. It is quite emotional to be a VIP visitor in a modern school, and be summoned to the Principals office! And to find despite what we hear, kids are simply kids, and generally look to we adults for direction.

Doug is a glider pilot, and has recently restored a 1943 vintage LK-10 glider, originally built as a USAAF trainer. The restoration is as accurate as possible, and is probably be the oldest glider on the Canadian Civil Register. His plan is to Oshawa in spring for a weight & balance, to obtain a flight permit. He says the windshield was particularly difficult to layout and attach, but it fits so snugly that no caulking or rubber strips are necessary.

OLD 1945 MOVIE My UK Aviation Artist friend, John Batchelor sends me interesting stuff from time to time, and particularly fascinating is a Facebook movie via a Luther Johnson, the ‘Freedom Airfield Air Show September 1945’. John says he would swop that 1945 air show for any modern show in the blink of an eye. He is pretty good at WWII aircraft recognition, found it good looking along the lines muttering names like Flettner, Macchi, Fiesler, etc. never mind the more common Me.Bf. Junkers and Heinkel.

WINNIPEG CIRCA 1955 After selling shoes for Bata in Hull, UK, I landed a trainee draftsman job at Blackburn Aircraft nearby at Brough, and the first proper drawing I did was the gear box cover plate for the clamshell doors of their impressive Beverley C-1 military freighter. I immigrated to Canada at Christmas 1956, and my first job was at Bristol Aircraft in Winnipeg. It was 40 below every day, and I was picked up for work in a tiny Hillman Minx. They still talked of the Bristol Britannia

that had been there the previous year for winter trials. Five months later I moved to CPA (Repairs) in Calgary, and heard all about Grant MacConachie and his wondrous airline. Somewhere along the way I ended up with an assortment of glossy B&W photos in my shoe box files, and by sharing them with you today, maybe someone will recognize the people, places and occasion? I believe they are from Bristols at Winnipeg. The 1936 Custom Waco EQC-6, CF-DTD was an MoT Inspector’s aircraft, black with yellow wings and speed stripe. This model \Waco is the same as the beautiful restored ‘Doc Pickup’ Custom Cabin CF-CCW at Langley BC’s Canadian Museum of Flight. In 1975, that registration was on a DC-3. What year is the vintage RCAF fuel truck? Can anyone identify the ramp guy, and what is the aircraft beyond the run-up Waco, a Beech 18 or a Lodestar?

AND THAT’S IT Happy New Year to everyone… Take care out there, have a good year. And so the world turns ever on… That’s all folks… Fly safe now! — Tony Swain & The Mary copaguy@vcn.bc.ca

Learning to fly, as easy as falling asleep? When I think back to the time I was learning to fly, memories of instructors who just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t share my enthusiasm come to mind. A young person aspiring to be a pilot is anxious to learn the skills, practice the procedures and get on with the process. But it always seemed to me that the instructors dragged their feet, prolonging the learning and most of all, cutting short the lessons just as I was beginning to master the particular item of the day. Flying circuits is a good example. We would fly for about an hour, round and round the pattern. Every time around, I would mess up on some maneuver. Determined to get it all right, we would do it again. But almost every touch-and-go ended with something less than perfect. I would roll out on final and be lined up wide of the runway, or the speed would be too fast, or the descent rate too high. That was usually the point where the instructor would end the session. So, with great disappointment, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d finish up the paperTwenty four hours later, work and go home. On days after a rest, the landings are when I just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it much better.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad example of a similarity, pergive the brain to sort it all out. A good example of this can be haps. But you get my point. Another example of good learning is observed by going back to those one-hour sessions in the circuit. The determined experience, which has often been touted student pilot thinks that the longer he as the best teacher you can have. It all practices, the better his techniques will starts during the time before the flight become. Of course that is true, but when tests.

them. Some instructors will shut off the fuel supply, pull a circuit breaker that disables the radios, stick a piece of tape over a couple of instruments or put you under the hood in mid flight. You just flew into IMC! Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question that situations like this will cause you to learn very fast, and learn the way out much better than sitting in on a lecture about engine failures, radio procedure, partial panels and getting out of the clouds. Learning is nothing more than a matter of forming memories. And memories come from the brain filing the skills and information in the proper framework. For that to work, the brain needs rest, time to sort the material. Without enough rest, the information doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get properly encoded in the memory, and we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t learned anything. I know a fellow, who happens to be learning to fly at the age when most pilots are retiring or leaving the cockpit. His enthusiasm is remarkable, and he often stays in the cockpit with his instructor for hours at a time. Still, the learning curve is proving to be very steep. If all this information is true, he might be much better

off spending less time in the airplane and more time sleeping! Learning the written information in ground school is similar. Students will frequently attempt to learn the content by reading the text several times. That may help in passing the test where the multiple-choice answers are word for word of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in texts books. But all the research points to the technique of reading and comprehending the information to a point where you could actually teach it to someone else in the near future. Good instructors have plenty of realworld experience to draw from, ways to illustrate the points the student must learn. Reading alone can result in the student focusing on extracting facts but failing to link what he learns to retention. Much of this is my own experiencebased observations. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what works for me after many years of giving the brain time to work it all out. And if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve not figured it out by now, that means a lot of time spent napping, sleeping or just plain and simple relaxing. During the years I spent in broadcasting, I came in contact with the theory that â&#x20AC;&#x153;we learn only a small amount of what we read or hear, more of what we see, and a greater amount, maybe half, of what we see and hear together. If we then go on to consider what we experience, the retention is higher yet. And hopefully, we understand and comprehend about 95 percent of what we teach to someone.â&#x20AC;? I doubt the scientific accuracy in specific cases, but experience shows thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of truth to it. Now if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m learning a new skill, in flying or in anything else, I remember those first instructors who made me practice for an hour, then leave it alone for the rest of the day. When I come back to it, somehow magically it all falls together as it should. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also helpful if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity to teach the new knowledge to someone else. That way, I need to have it right.

Corporate Sponsorship

Will you have a place to land tomorrow?

Keep General Aviation alive and well in Canada by supporting the COPA Freedom to Fly Fund through Corporate Sponsorship Four levels of sponsorship: Bronze for $500 or more Silver for $1,000 or more Gold for $5,000 or more Platinum for $10,000 or more These sponsoring companies are supporting your freedom to fly, show your appreciation by patronizing them.

Platinum Sponsor Former Nighthawk Flying Club

Gold Sponsor Pontiac Airpark www.pontiacairpark.com, 1-819-LOV-2FLY A new fly-in community northwest of Gatineau-Ottawa

Silver Sponsors Chestermere/Kirkby Field Alberta Sea Jay Engineering Services Limited CANADIAN OWNERS AND PILOTS ASSOCIATION

Bronze Sponsor Northern Lake Amphibian Pilots Your sponsorship will entitle you to special recognition in COPA Flight and on the COPA website.

For more information visit our website or mail the form below with your donation.

Donate to the Freedom to Fly Fund today Here are some examples of how the Freedom to Fly Fund has been applied to date (The complete text of several legal rulings in our favour can be found in the COPA Guide to Private Aerodromes on the member’s only section of our web site):

Freedom to Fly Fund Donation Form

- Funded Venchiarutti V. Longhurst and Longhurst (1992), a landmark ruling in which the Court of Appeal for Ontario confirmed the right of individuals to own and operate a private airstrip. The key decision in that case was “The Aeronautics Act makes no distinction between “airports” and “private airports,” both of which constitute matters of exclusive federal concern.”

Given the considerable challenges we continue to face against our freedom to fly, we urge everyone to consider donating whatever amount you can afford to the Freedom to Fly Fund. We have all benefited significantly from those who donated before us. Now it is time to ensure that we continue to be able to protect your freedom as well as the freedom of those who will follow us.

- Funded legal representation before the Federal Court of Canada to successfully establish that Transport Canada’s Letters of Counselling can be appealed to the Civil Aviation Tribunal (now the Transportation Appeal Tribunal of Canada).

Membership number ______________________________________

- Revenue Canada was convinced to eliminate 10 per cent Excise Tax on private aircraft.

Address ___________________________________________________________________________

- Participated in the resolution of a situation where a farmer’s silo was being erected on the approach path to the Chatham Ontario airport, effectively shutting down a runway.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Name

__________________________________________________________________________

- Thwarted an attempt by Ontario Hydro to force an aerodrome owner to bury wires on his property despite the fact Transport Canada had determined the airstrip was safe and the risk was adequately addressed by a cautionary note in the CFS.

Individual/Group Donation: $25

- Successfully defended pilots who were taken to court for landing at Banff and Jasper airstrips.

Corporate Sponsorship Donation: Platinum

- Participated extensively over several years in the effort to convince the government to retain the Banff and Jasper airstrips.

Specify amount $_______

- Convinced a municipality in Nova Scotia that building permits are not needed to construct hangars on a newly established aerodrome near Lunenburg. The municipality backed down when their Legal Counsel reviewed the past cases that are highlighted in COPA’s Guide to Private Aerodromes and COPA’s Legal Counsel provided guidance for the COPA member involved so that he and his lawyer could steer the matter away from a costly legal challenge. - And much, much more... Anyone can apply for financial assistance, but expenditures are carefully controlled by the COPA Directors who decide what projects are deserving of financial support. Details concerning the application process can be found at www.copanational.org/non-members /fund.htm.

COPA at WORK Note: When the contact given for the following items is one of the COPA staff or directors, their contact information is listed on page 3 of COPA Flight. (COPA AT WORK is compiled and edited by Michel Hell, COPA’s Publisher. The COPA actions reported here are a result of the support of COPA members and published for their use.)

COPA opposed to new gov’t regulations The federal government has proposed new regulations in what it says will enhance the safety of Canadian aviation. These regulations would require private and commercial airplanes with six or more passenger seats to be equipped with an alert system known as the “terrain awareness and warning system” (TAWS). TAWS provides acoustic and visual alerts to flight crews when the path of their aircraft is predicted to collide with terrain, water or obstacles — a situation that can occur when visibility is low or the weather is poor. This gives the flight crew sufficient time to take evasive action. These types of accidents often happen when pilots are unaware of the danger until it is too late. The risk is even greater for small aircraft, which fly further into remote wilderness or mountainous areas but are not currently required to have the same proximity warning equipment as large airliners. The proposed regulations comply with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s standards and help harmonize Canadian regulations more closely with those of other aviation authorities, including those in the United States and European Union. Canada’s Transportation Safety Board also recommends the wider use of TAWS to help pilots assess their proximity to terrain. These proposed amendments will be pre-published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, on December 3, 2011. Stakeholders will have a 75-day consultation period to comment on the proposed regulations before they are finalized and published in the Canada Gazette, Part II. COPA is opposed to regulations that are or should be aimed at commercial aviation also being made applicable to private aviation. This is an example of one such regulation.

At a cost averaging $19,000 per aircraft for TAWS and an additional $2200 for Enhanced Altitude Accuracy, this burden is not justified in terms of accidents involving privately registered small aircraft. Even though it is limited to turbine powered aircraft and six or more passenger seats, the regulation unnecessarily captures several private aircraft that should be exempt from more onerous standards that should only apply to commercial operations. There are several good reasons why private aircraft should not be subject to commercial levels of safety and these apply in this case. Furthermore, the justification given in the Gazette announcement and during the CARAC process simply is not robust enough to make this mandatory for our sector of aviation. COPA recommends that the reference to Part 605 operations be removed from the regulatory amendment said, COPA President and CEO Kevin Psutka. The link to the Gazette: www.gazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p1/2011/2011-12-03/html/reg2eng.html Anyone who may be affected is encouraged to provide their own input to TC by Feb. 14, 2012.

COPA au BOULOT Note: Lorsque le contact mentionné dans l'un de ces articles est un membre de la gestion ou un Directeur de la COPA, l'information pour rejoindre ce contact est disponible à la page 3 de ce journal (COPA au Boulot est compilé et édité par Michel Hell, Éditeur-chef à la COPA, et traduit par Claude Roy, Éditeur-adjoint à la traduction. Les actions de la COPA sont le résultat du support obtenu des membres de la COPA et publié pour leur utilisation).

La COPA s’oppose aux nouveaux règlements gouvernementaux Le gouvernement fédéral a proposé de nouveaux règlements qui, selon leur dire, amélioreront la sécurité de l’aviation canadienne. Cette réglementation exigerait que les avions privés et commerciaux de six sièges passagers ou plus soient munis d’un système d’alerte connu sous le nom de «système d’avertissement et d’alarme d’impact», ou TAWS (terrain awareness and warning system). Le TAWS produit des alertes sonores et visuelles à l’intention de l’équipage de conduite lorsque la trajectoire de l’aéronef entraîne ce dernier vers un relief, l’eau ou un obstacle. Une telle situation pourrait se présenter lorsque la visibilité ou les conditions météorologiques sont mauvaises. Ainsi, le TAWS permettrait à l’équipage d’avoir assez de temps pour entreprendre des manœuvres d’évitement. Ce genre d’accidents survient souvent lorsque les pilotes ignorent un danger jusqu’à ce qu’il soit trop tard. Le risque est encore plus important dans le cas des petits aéronefs, qui survolent des régions sauvages plus éloignées et des régions montagneuses, mais le dispositif avertisseur de proximité qui est exigé à bord des gros avions de ligne n’est pas actuellement obligatoire dans ces petits aéronefs. La réglementation proposée est conforme aux normes de l’Organisation de l’aviation civile internationale et permet de mieux harmoniser la réglementation canadienne à celle d’autres autorités de l’aviation, y compris celles des États-Unis et de l’Union européenne. Le Bureau de la sécurité des transports du Canada recommande une utilisation plus répandue du TAWS afin d’aider les pilotes à mieux évaluer la distance entre leur aéronef et un relief. Transports Canada est déterminé à poursuivre l’amélioration de la sécurité aérienne. Les modifications proposées seront d’abord publiées dans la Partie I de la Gazette du Canada, le 3 décembre 2011. Les intervenants disposeront d’une période de consultation de 75 jours pour présenter leurs observations au sujet de la réglementation proposée avant qu’elle ne devienne définitive et qu’elle soit publiée dans la Partie II de la Gazette du Canada. La COPA est opposée aux règlements qui sont ou devraient être orientés vers l’avia-

tion commerciale et au fait de les rendre applicables à l’aviation privée. Ceci est un exemple d’un tel règlement. À un coût unitaire de 19 000$ par avion pour le TAWS et un coût additionnel de 2 200$ pour une précision améliorée de l’altitude, ce fardeau n’est pas justifié en termes d’accidents impliquant de petits avions privés. Même si cela est limité aux avions à turbine avec six sièges passagers ou plus, le règlement capture sans aucune nécessité plusieurs avions privés qui devraient être exemptés de ces normes plus onéreuses, lesquelles normes devraient être appliquées seulement aux opérations commerciales. Il existe plusieurs bonnes raisons pourquoi les avions privés ne devraient pas être assujettis aux niveaux commerciaux de sécurité et celles-ci s’appliquent dans ce cas. De plus, la justification donnée dans l’annonce de la Gazette et durant le processus du CCRAC (Conseil consultatif de la réglementation aérienne canadienne) n’est tout simplement pas assez robuste pour rendre ceci obligatoire dans notre secteur de l’aviation. La COPA recommande que la référence à la Partie 605 des opérations soit enlevée de l’amendement règlementaire, a déclaré le Président et Chef exécutif Kevin Psutka. Le lien internet à la Gazette est le suivant : www.gazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p1/2011/2011-12-03/html/reg2-eng.html Toute personne qui pourrait être affectée est encouragée à fournir leurs propres commentaires à Transports Canada d’ici le 14 février 2012.
