Hello!

Re: Qualicum Beach Airport Appreciation Day – Saturday, June 13th, 2009

Planning is underway for this year’s Airport Appreciation Day. This event is being held on Saturday, June 13th at the Qualicum Beach Airport. We are expecting a good turnout due in part, to the enthusiasm of the participating volunteer groups.

The volunteer contingent is extensive and ranges from established service organizations such as the Shriners, Kiwanis, Citizens on Patrol and SpeedWatch. Our younger citizens from the Air Force Cadets will be assisting with events such as the PQB News-sponsored balsa-wood airplane races and security for the displays. Children from School District #69 will be providing topic-related science projects and poetry and art projects for display.

Visiting aircraft include the “Fraser Blues”, a formation-flying team. Static aircraft displays will include a wide range of craft from a WWII Steerman biplane to newer, experimental planes.

Sight-seeing trips for the whole family will be provided on fixed-wing aircraft through KD Air, and helicopter tours will be offered by SunWest Heilicopters.
We are in need of financial sponsors. All sponsors will have their logos displayed on print materials and their names will be announced over the P.A. system at the event. Major sponsors will receive top billing on all media ads and their logo will appear on the t-shirts worn by 100+ volunteers. Please see the attached information for the varying levels of sponsorship.
In order to ensure that your logo is properly presented on our promotional materials, we would require a copy of your logo (electronic or hard copy) as soon as possible, and payment by April 15th.
Your cash donation would be used to help cover the “hard” costs of the event such as fuel, equipment rental, t-shirts, etc. We are also in need of certain materials and would appreciate donations “in-kind” as well; a list of needed items is available. Your sponsorship level will be determined by the value of both money and supplies.

Your consideration, and contribution, would be greatly appreciated. I’ll call in a few days to answer any questions that you might have, or feel free to call me (Tel/Fax: 250-248-5622), or Jim Hannibal (Tel: 250-752-8766).

Kind regards,
Parksville-Qualicum Aero Club

Taildragger Tactics  $34.95

It is loaded with information, facts and plain English explanations to eliminate mistakes.

The Taildragger Tactics book has been structured to allow one to read from the beginning to the end much like a novel. Each chapter builds and expands upon information that was presented in the previous chapter; however, each chapter is also self-contained to allow one to read only the chapters desired.

Flying a taildragger requires knowledge and skill. The knowledge is imparted in this book. The skill is something that must be developed in the airplane.

Mountain Flying Bible Revised  $46.95

This is your opportunity to acquire one of the most useful books for your library personally autographed by the author.

Review of the Mountain Flying Bible – This book is one of those that all pilots can learn from (just as it deepened my understanding in many areas), and should be part of every serious pilot’s reference library. It is, in all likelihood, the best aviation book written in recent years that focuses on light aircraft. Certainly it is the most useful. I recommend it without reservation.

— F.E. Potts, author of F.E. Potts’ Guide to Bush Flying: Concepts and Techniques for the Pro

For more than 40 years pilots have relied on author and aviator Sparky Imeson’s mountain flying expertise. His Mountain Flying Bible Revised is the new comprehensive standard for mountain flying.

Imeson’s strength as a writer, teacher and mountain pilot lends a clear and concise style that is not only thorough, but fun and entertaining to read.

All the hard-to-find information has been combined in one useful book. Loaded with helpful icons and photographs, it greatly simplifies, with clarity and authority, mountain flying operations.

KGA Pilot Profile | KGA Flight School

Recently Robert completed the passenger carrying course allowing him to carry unlisened passengers and as a proud Pappa, his first passenger was his son Craig, hopefully the next Barron in line to become a pilot. The field was established by his uncle Fred Baron, and you easily recognize his Murphy Renegade by its Red Baron paint job. His home field is the Intergalactic aerodrome at the corner of 176 street and 8th ave.
