After 17 months of hibernation the AFC clambered out of its cave for a very well attended flight to Victoria. We had 7 planes participating. Both club planes, Clark’s Cherokee, Dan’s Sonex, Bevan’s RV7A, Devin in the Kitfox and Kevin in his Glastar. The weather was CAVOK. The Victoria terminal controller was very busy, talking on both the inner and outer frequencies. No opportunity for in cockpit intercom chatter. We were given 500 ft incremental descent clearances and sometimes vectors. For me this was the busiest ever flight into Victoria. Having a two person crew was very helpful. Nobody got yelled at. We walked to Mary’s Blue Moon Cafe for outside seating. We learned that long-time waiter Daniel had retired.
The return flight to CYXX was uneventful. Job well done by everyone. Looking forward to the next flyout to Powell River. Gather at the clubhouse at 0830 hrs.
