Bill Best LZ Closed this Year

I received a call from Bill Best and he asked me to pass on the message of CLOSURE for landing on his field in Harrison Mills for this year. He has leased the field out for corn crops so it is now not for club use. Kindly respect all the land owners and let other WCSC pilots know! Thanks! Al Hammer

For quick updates the WCSC Line can work great!... provided people don't think it's their personal equivalent of F***book. It was set up by Andrie for quick communiqué about going to the site an...

Re: Secret Paragliding Site

Hey Amir, As to your site status question, currently WCSC holds only a road maintenance agreement under Section 57 with Ministry of Forests and it's all crown land. This has proved to be worth much more than it's weight in gold as for the $10 bucks to register and a bit of paperwork submitted 5 year...

Re: Benny to Pemby

Yes!! This one has been in my good day north queue plan with options. With the nice SE tail winds and fast climbs I was hoping to stretch it out too a nice evening glass off up the Pemby Valley! However lots of late cloud shut me down. Earlier I had someone leave my bumper lights on and drained the ...

Thanks Nicole for all the work with comps and airspace issues in Canada. I know it's a b**** denying some of our flights - mine included! I find it interesting with our max altitudes and the way they are all 90 degree angles plotted from one ceiling to the next. No airplane except prehaps a helicopt...

Glad it was you Pete! Nice to be able to modify the program to solve the issue for the future as well. Nice flight ... not often do you see a 70km valley FAI tri!

Benny

Here is an overview picture of Benedict including one LZ. We may want to have one easier access launch at lower for setting up hangs on road and as they usually seem to fly directly to the LZ will be quicker turn around for them. Good news on the road access to the top is; forestry is going to re-bu...

Benedict

Benedict is finally coming on stream with newly logged launch potential.

Choose one off three cut's for lower launch - easy drive - Virtue LZ just below.
Or upper. - road will be improved by forestry as they ripped up our trail and must now fix. More on this later!

Yep, the launch is Pattison East and it has easy drive up access. Matt Jesson and I flew it about 5 + years ago when it was snow covered. (correction) Derek K. was out as well shooting video and Matt J. top landed then flew again. Nice big LZ just around the corner same as Little Nic LZ. There's a l...
