Well I was supposed to be going for a Buffalo ride tomorrow, for a CASARA training lift. They called this morning and said they weren't comming because 5 out of the 6 Buffs were unavailable due to mechanical trouble so they needed to keep the last one in Comox in case something happened. I'm just curious is this typical? We seem to get a lot of our lifts cancelled. I realize that North East Zone is sort of the red-headed step child of the province when it comes to training with the military (we are lucky if we get one lift per year, and for some reason they always schedule it in December, when we get our worst flying weather, we've had a lot cancelled due to that as well, last time I went up I believe our ceiling was a grand old 700-800 feet, I asked the crew to do a short field take off, but they said the ceiling was too low for it ??? they attempted to do a short field landing, but they tried to make it soft too and it didn't work very well </rambling>) but this is getting really bad. It's supposed to be nice tomorrow too, I may just go flying anyway.
