Flying north of the 49th Parallel is a great experience for any pilot. Experiencing the sights of Canada and the warmth of its citizens from an airplane is one of the many gifts that aviation offers those of us close to its borders.
It’s also a logistical challenge that is not clearly defined in any one place. Some of those challenges include:
• Border crossing requirements both northbound, and southbound
• US Customs requirements and eAPIS (did you know that you need US Customs permission to leave the US?)
• Canada Customs requirements
• Fees (don’t be surprised when you get a bill in the mail 6 months after your trip!)
• What to do in Canada: Getting from point to point in another country (and what is ‘the button’?)
• Logistical considerations when operating in Canada: It’s more remote than anywhere else in North America!
Join Rainier Flight Service on Oct 12th at 10am to discuss Canada flying with Assistant Chief Instructor Barry Maas, who has flown extensively in British Columbia, in both VFR and IFR operations. Bring your questions, thoughts, and interest in new locations in another country!
