This is almost full turbulence captured by the control bar cameras. It shows how bad (for some not too bad) it really was. It is part of the video # 210

210. Short Kamloops Flight in the Worst Turbulence Ever, Nov 28, 2018

It was beautiful, sunny day with just light wind. I took off with intention to fly east towards Chase and perhaps further east. In about 5 minutes my plan very quickly and suddenly changed. I was in the worst turbulence while in command (I was in much worse turbulence in commercial flight). The up and down bounces were very unpleasant and for me outright scary. I was in one moment in weightless condition going down with instant kick back up. The problem was that I took off west, up wind, turned east, down wind but instead I ended up in very strong up wind. This is the weirdness of Kamloops flying conditions. Regardless what ever it was, I hope I will not experience this again.

209. Flying to Deadman Valley and Seat Belt Problem, Nov 17, 2018

I took off for 130 km loop flight to Deadman Valley. I was following the south shore of Kamloops Lake flying west over Tobiano, Golf Residential Resort, to Savona. I turned NW over beautiful Deadman Valley for about 30 km. My fingers were getting numb from cold, so I decided to fly straight back SE towards the Kamloops Airport. The environment is not very friendly for any emergency landings there, while flying over heavily forested hills and valleys. I trust my Rotax 912.  There were many logging fires so the very large area looked like during the famous Kamloops forest fires.

At about 5 min into my flight, I noticed that I forgot to buckle up. Instead of turning around and land, buckle up and take off again, I made dumb decision to buckle the seat belt in the air (while in bumpy air). I really struggled with this task (well documented on the video), and it was serious distracted flying. I will never do it again and I hope I will never forget again to buckle up in the first place.

Andreasson BA-4B     $18,000. CDN

VINTAGE SPORTS CAR CONSIDERED IN TRADE.

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 monnics EZ-Pilot single axis (roll) autopilot. The EZ-Pilot is slaved to the included Garmin 296 GPS and will intercept and hold a course tht 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.

Europa Classic -     New price $39,500 CAD  

Europa Classic meticulously built by the current owner. This aircraft flies beautifully hands off, is very responsive, light, well balanced and fast, must be flown to be appreciated. A very clean A/C cruising at 150 mph at 5 gal/hr or faster at different prop setting, climb is over 1000 fpm with two on board! Low stall of 50 mph makes this A/C and easy transition for capable tail dragger pilots or those that want something more challenging to land than a tricycle. The owner has test flown and checked out multiple Europa owners and can assist with transition training. The A/C is flight proven with over 500 hrs TT and has been flown all over east to west, south to north. Always hangared with no damage history.

Rotax 912 ULS, 100 hp, Warpdrive, ground adjustable propeller. Retractable mono-wheel with dampened suspension. Empty weight 830 lb, gross weight 1370 lbs. Go to http://petertimm.blogspot.com for more info and pics. Hangared at Pemberton BC.
