Today was the day. Well, yesterday lol. I flew my first flight with passengers aboard. I fly for SeaAir in the Cessna 208 Caravan, with pontoons. Harbor Air does island hopping, and I flew from Nanaimo to Vancouver. It was a short 15 minute hop cruising at 1000 feet with 4 people on board.
Parked at the “Gate”
Getting ready to start it up!
Taking off from Nanaimo 👋
On final approach at Vancouver’s Seaport
On the ground! I mean…water! Thanks to all who have been a part of this journey and thanks to IF for helping me learn to love aviation! See ya in the next one!
Always wanted to try out a sea plane. Hope it was a fun flight!
That’s awesome man! Congrats!
Seaplanes are very fun indeed!
Ikr lol. I was contemplating revealing it but I did. Thanks :D
That’s pretty sick! Nice Photos!
How was the landing… On Water?
Butter. Landing on water is pretty easy because the pontoons just sink right in. Very little flare is required too lol
When did you get hired? Looks like a good job
I got hired about a month ago, went through some final training, and got to fly yesterday. It’s a really great job though!
Man I wished I had some dreams like yours, where I become a pilot. They would be fun!
How long did your CPL course take?
I’ve got a question. You’ve got pictures sitting in the right seat flying. But the pictures of the wing view are taken a seat behind the pilot seats.
So either you got up in flight when you were at the controls or you’re lying…
No that was my dad who was taking pics
