Shannon Lake Westbank BC (a "Secret Site.") - by Jerry Mason

A 1 hour hike and 2,000' ascent puts you at 3,955' AMSL above Shannon Lake Golf Course in West Kelowna.
On this April 25th flight we managed to thermal to 5,000' AMSL, fly out into the valley
- and return to the golf course for landing on an adjacent football field, our normal LZ.

Approximately 3700' AMSL at take off, landing at 1700' AMSL.

Fly Hills Video Tour

Our newest "critical asset" flying site. Fly Hills high east facing upper launch.
Lower and mid launch are right off the same road up.

The club is planning an XC Coaching Weekend there, late this spring.

Thanks for this to John Lang.

There has been a staggering amount of work done on the upper of three launches here since these films were shot.
Thanks to our one man army: Ken Steiner and his OK Friends. Regained after 29 years absence.

Music: Zephyr by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.



First Cross Country flight from Fly Hills by Richard Bruneau.
From Fly Hills in the Okanagan/Shuswap Valley, south to Faulkland west to Kamloops, north up the Yellowhead to Sun Peaks Ski Hill.
IMHO the highest potential XC Route we have in OK land.



View of Shushwap Lake from right over the town of Salmon Arm BC.
It is a beautiful "H" shaped lake. Longest shoreline on planet earth.
