    Saturday September 10th @ 1:00 pm

    Please save the July 9 2022 weekend as the AGM date.  We were hoping to hold this year’s AGM at the Courtenay Airpark and Seaplane Base but winter damage to the float dock and dock fuel system require a change in plans. At this point it is unknown when the seaplane base will be back in operation, but we hope to arrange a future AGM at this great location.

    We are in the process of making plans to hold this year's AGM at the Pitt Meadows Airport.  The meeting will be held the afternoon of Saturday July 9, to be followed by a BBQ, and informal fly-out on Sunday to one of the nearby lakes.

    There are still a number of variables to make this year’s fly-in AGM happen,  but we are optimistic that the conditions will fall into place to have a fun 2022 fly-in AGM.

    Due to the wildfire situation in BC, the BCFA meet at Northwood Lodge has been postponed. We are looking at having a meeting in September, plans to be announces as soon as possible. Thank you all who expressed interest in the meeting. We have had trouble with July meetings several times over the past few years due to weather and forest fires and will look at possibly moving the date for future meetings.

    It is with a heavy heart to let you know that a very dear personal and trusted friend of the BCFA, Fred Glasbergen has passed suddenly due to a fluke accident. Fred was a long time devoted past director and member who donated many hours into the association as financial, promotional and activity director.
    His wife, best friend and soul mate Beverly Lawrence,  has asked people to donate to the BCFA scholarship monetary award “In Memory” of Fred in lieu of flowers etc. Fred was a big supporter of the BCFA Scholarship awards.

    Details to follow on how to make a donation in Fred's memory

    There will be a zoom meeting service for Fred on Monday March 8, 2021 at 10:30 AM Vancouver. Please email info@BCFloatplaneAssociation.com to request the zoom meeting link.

    Approvals for the 2020 season have been received from BC Parks for pre-authorization requests to restricted lakes and emailed out to the requesting members. 
    If you missed your email notice, a copy can be downloaded here. You should carry a copy of the letter with you when visiting a restricted lake.


    We have also received a list of potential floatplane projects that BC Parks would appreciate assistance with. Many of the projects are simple requests for photos for use on their web site or observations during fly-over of animals, tracks, boats, ATVs, or other signs of activity or condition. The list of projects and contact person can be downloaded here.
