Taylorcraft L2A

I did my long cross country solo today. The first part was a flight from CYPK to Powell River. It’s great scenery (like most of the flying around here). When I landed in Powell River I took a stroll around to check out the local aircraft. There was a nice Stinson 108, but there was also a weird looking sort yellow Piper Cub sort of something that caught my eye.

Turns out it’s a replica Taylorcraft L2A.

I searched the Canadian Civil Aircraft Registry and only found this airplane, so they’re pretty rare, in Canada at least (and this one is a replica).

The planes were built by Taylorcraft starting in 1941. They were used as light transport and spotter planes, and were able to take off and land on unprepared airfields. It’s a cool looking little plane, and shows why it’s worth getting out of the plane at new airfields and looking around.

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.
