Video Tour of South Okanagan Flying Sites and Pilots

Postby siteguide » Tue Jan 29, 2013 1:32 pm

A video tour of our South Okanagan Region flying sites. Enjoy! :thumbs:
- I hope our contributors know how much we appreciate them for this!

This list includes: Giants Head, Anarchist, DRAO, Parker Mt., Hawthorne Mt., Cawston, Christian Valley, Ripleys, Wolf Creek, Hedley and Iron Mt.

Our South Okanagan Air Riders (SOAR) country is an XC area in Canada.
Lots of sites covering all wind directions, all reasonably close together... and the region features lots of variety and alternative recreational activites.

Plan your XC routes with Tom Paynes excellent XC Planner.
