Opinion: Please bear with the training pilots
from Cowichan Valley Citizen
According to author Fergus Anderson: I feel I have to add comment to the letters of Manuel Erickson and Bernice Ramsdin. She is quite right, in spite of what Erickson says, about small aircraft over Chemainus. They are there and they are noisy. What the lady needs to know is that almost all the cutting out and revving up of these machines is part of a practice manoeuvre called "stall and recovery." Flying in the forested mountains of British Columbia is a dangerous business and all pilots have to learn all they can about keeping their machine in the air.
