Editor's Notes

DDOS attack...

On Wednesday May 23, I got a nasty surprise, a message from my web hosting site telling me that my account was suspended; it had been under DDOS attack and thy were forced to suspend it. They were telling me to consider enabling Cloudflare DNS for my account to bypass the attack towards the server.

Nothing like that had ever happened in the 17 years I have been maintaining this site, and I did not have a clue what to do.  I deal with, and their customer support is the best! They were very patient as they guided me every step of the way; I downloaded and installed the software they were recommending, but there were many things to do to get the proper configuration.  It took two days to get back online, and I must give my sincere thanks to Michael J, Raymond K, Kevin A, and Philip W.

So, to anyone out there thinking about setting up a Web site, just get in touch with them at .

What is a DDOS attack anyway? The definition is : A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is an attempt to make an online service unavailable by overwhelming it with traffic from multiple sources. They target a wide variety of important resources, from banks to news websites, and present a major challenge to making sure people can publish and access important information.

I still don't see what makes my web site worthy of such attention...

Then on June 4, to test my patience again, I faced another problem, this time it was all my fault. At the request of a seller, I was changing an ad in the Buy and Sell section; I modified it as requested, saved the file and uploaded it. Usually when I change an ad, that brings it back to the top of the page. It turned out that in doing so I had by mistake deleted all the ads above that one and a few others below.

So I did what should be done under the circumstances: a facepalm, call myself a few choice names, have another cup of coffee and spend the next 8 hours fixing my screwup. Then I saved copies in a few different locations, just to be safe!

Fly In: don't forget to go to the Salmon Arm Airport Appreciation Day on June 24.

From Jam Nademlejnsky

It was not easy for me to say the final good bye to my red AirBorne trike. I had very good memory from my 18 years of flying it to many exciting places. It allowed me to see places which majority of people would never had a chance to see. I sold it to a hang glider pilot from Powell River. I hope he will have as much fun as I did.


I was really pumped up to fly my new Apollo DeltaJet2 trike. I could not wait for new prop to arrive from USA, which I damaged during the trike transport from Winnipeg.

Innocent, beautiful morning, motorcycle trip in May 15th changed all my plans. Truck driver who did not pay attention knocked me off the motorbike while we were driving downhill on Summit Dr. After several somersaults down the road, I noticed that I lost a lot of skin from my legs and arms. I was cleaned, X-rayed and bandaged (very poorly) in the Kamloops hospital. After several days, I was told that I have torn tendon and badly damaged 3 muscles in my left shoulder. I will need surgery to, hopefully, fix that damage.

Right now, all my skin is back and I have just small bandage on my elbow. I am not in pain, but I cannot lift my left arm, therefore I cannot fly or ride motorcycle. I am driving, but with difficulty and especially in parking lots, where I need both hands. We were planning to start out motorhome holiday the same (accident) week. Instead, I had to ask my neighbour to park all my toys back into the hangar. It really sucks especially this year with so many beautiful mornings ready for flying. I can just dream and hope for that distant one day, when I will be ready again.

I was hoping to fly my new trike to Salmon Arm Airport Appreciation Day, in June 24, which will be again very exciting air show.

Andreasson BA-4B     Reduced to $23,000. OBO



Also looking for Vans RV-4

The Andreasson BA-4B is a Swedish-designed sport biplane that dates from the mid-1960s.

This BA-4B is an excellent example of the type. It features all-metal construction, superior build craftsmanship, a 0-timed engine, terrific panel and a removable full canopy. It is built for small to medium sized pilots.     The builder, Gerry Theroux, is a retired aircraft maintenance engineer, and his experience with structures and systems on large airliners shows in the build quality and attention to detail that this BA-4B demonstrates.

Aircraft Features :

Lycoming 0-235-L2C 118 hp, O SMOH. Overhaul completed in 2015, engine properly preserved in a heated garage or hangar since then.  Will need proper break-in sequence completed. 2000 hour TBO.  Dual P-Mags allow variable and always optimal ignition timing. This translates to exceptional fuel economy and reliability. The ability to use automotive spark plugs saves even more money over having to use aviation spade plugs.

Oil cooler and remote oil filter. Propeller is also O time SOH.  Trio Avionics EZ-Pilot single axis (roll) autopilot. The EZ-Pilot is slaved to the included Garmin 296 GPS and will intercept and hold a course the pilot selects, or operate autonomously to any heading the pilot selects. It can slave to any GPS featuring standard NMEA data output

Panel mounted Garmin 296 GPS.   An MGL comm radio Mode C transponder. Standard ASI, altimeter, VSL, fuel gauge, and tachometer. Quad gauge for oil pressure and temp, CHT and EGT.  Full electrics with proper wiring and circuit breakers.   Electric pitch trim with electronic position indicator.  Flaperons, which will also work with the EZ pilot.  Adjustable rudder pedals. Cabin heat and cabin vent cooling.

4 full-span ailerons for exceptional roll control.  Fighter plane-style stick grip with switches for comm, trim and autopilot.  5-point harness.  55 litre fuel tank (14.5 US gal).  Spring steel landing gear, dual brakes and 6.00 x 5 tires.  Full swivel tail wheel.  Wingtip and strobe lights.  Full plans and a set of claw tie-downs

Additionally, the engine needs the initial ground run break-in, plus the standard in-flight break-in to seat the rings and to stabilize oil consumption.

The BA-4B is currently registered as an ultralight aircraft and has not yet flown. As an ultralight, it does not require the standard amateur-built restrictions such as staying within only 25 NM of the home airport for the first 25 hours of flight. The pilot has a lot more freedom to explore the airplane at his or her discretion.

The airplane weighs about 700 lbs empty, and as noted, it will best fit small to medium sized pilots. The rudder pedals are adjustable via turnbuckles, and there is some room for adjustment in the seat

This airplane will have outstanding performance with an excellent power-to- weight ratio, terrific climb and roll rates, and an estimated cruise speed near 150 mph! You won’t find that in other ultralight aircraft.

See this Wikipedia link for the design’s complete history:
