Weather here has not been co-operative for my short cross country solos. It’s going on two weeks and I haven’t been able to combine free time with high enough ceilings to make it from Pitt Meadows to Chilliwack. Monday looked like a great opportunity, so I hit the school and did my flight plan. With that done I needed a briefing, and since my main man Paolo was tied up I figured I’d go do the walk around.

You know why you do walk arounds? Some people think its a safety thing. In my case I do it to discover that the checklist is gone, the gas is low, the control lock is missing, the airplane is unlocked, and that, to top it off, it’s unflyable:

Is it too much to ask the obvious? Like, when you finish breaking the airplane could you let someone know?

Anyway, it’s not that bad. $50.00 in parts and we’re all set.

My name is Rob Chipman and I’m a realtor and pilot based in Vancouver, BC. I AM NOT A FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR AND I AM NOT OFFERING FLIGHT INSTRUCTION! I am sharing my study notes and other things I’ve learned while getting my education as a pilot. You’re welcome to make use of this information, but do not treat it as expert advice.

I really enjoy flying, real estate and the Chilcotin.  My company is Coronet Realty Ltd., located at 3582 East Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC, V5K 2A7. I have a C-150L that I own with two other pilots, based out of Pitt Meadows. Do not hesitate to contact me by email if I can help you do anything, especially if its likely to be interesting or concerns selling remote property in British Columbia.
