WSPA and BCFA Joint Splash-out Sept 8-9

30 Jul 2018 4:10 PM | BCFA Webmaster (Administrator)

Washington Seaplane Association (WSPA) and BCFA have a goal to increase interaction amongst members.  Notwithstanding the border between us we share all of the same challenges and opportunities.

We will be kicking this effort off with a splash out in September to Phantom Lake, BC.  Phantom is approx. 15nm NW of Squamish.  Phantom Lake (3100’ msl and 10,000 feet long) is a popular destination for floatplanes.  There is a convenient sandy beach with nearby primitive camping.  BCFA seasonally positions a canoe at the camp site.  Nearby float accessible lakes include East Falk Lake and Kato Lake.  These latter lakes, being higher and shorter, are a bit more challenging and suitable for higher performance aircraft. There is excellent hiking and scrambling at all of these lakes.

The general plan for the weekend is as follows;

Saturday, September 8

  • Late morning/early afternoon arrival at Phantom Lake
  • Camp Set Up
  • Fishing / hiking / BCFA canoe on site
  • Optional exploration of nearby lakes for those interested
  • 1800 dinner (BYOF&B)
  • Evening presentation/discussion by BCFA’s Mike Thompson on alpine lake flying

Sunday, September 9

Afternoon break camp and depart
  • After breakfast optional exploration of nearby lakes for those interested
  • Afternoon break camp and depart
