Ferry Mission – IFR Across Canada in a 1971 Piper Cherokee 6
Getting ready for “Operation Eastbound” as I help my buddy Blake ferry his new-to-him 1971 Piper Cherokee 6 from Calgary-area to Toronto (YBW – YKZ) using it’s 6-pack instrumentation, no GPS, and the original autopilot!
This mission took place in early winter, and icing in cloud was a risk we needed to manage and mitigate.
Mentors and coaches I leaned on for this mission – and most of my training! 🙂

After years of avoiding getting into “Merch”, enough people requesting it finally inspired me to launch a store – All revenue goes back into production.

Regarding the Survival kit: My friends at TacAero shared this code with the Flight Chops community to save $250 USD on an Aviation Survival Kit this spring. I am not being paid any portion of the sales, I just want to be a part of helping get more pilots flying safely.

Clearly it is possible to do the work and research to put a kit together yourself more cheaply, but the very experienced team at TacAero knows what you need. So if you want to save that time, effort, and the chance of getting it wrong, I stand behind this ready to go kit.
