Taking the long way to CBAA in Edmonton

First stop – Fort McMurray

Steve and Daryl left this morning on an adventure. Flying in Daryl’s Cessna 182 and  after watching the change in the weather, they were wheels up mid morning.  Their destination…Fort McMurray.  Just one of their stops to the CBAA (Canadian Business Aviation Association) in Edmonton.

Packed and ready, with some demo gear, Daryl’s new panel, and new interior in the 182P, they were gone.

A couple of hours ago they were cruising along at 11,500 feet above Kamloops siping oxygen.


Fraser Canyon north of Hope was low but got on top around Lytton.

Staff at Maxcraft are following them anxiously on line with Steve and Daryl’s Spot Gen 3. (which I must say, is very neat to watch).

After landing at Whitecourt, Alberta for fuel, they visited a customer and then continued on. They had a great flight to Fort Mac and under a cloud deck arrived to a very busy airport! Steve and Daryl had a customer pick them up and then lend them their vehicle for the day!

More on their adventure tomorrow!
