    WSPA and B.C. Floatplane Association

    Joint Splash-Out – 8-9 September 2018

    WSPA and BCFA have a common goal to increase interaction amongst members.  Notwithstanding the border between us we share all of the same challenges and opportunities; access, safe operations and fun.

    We will be kicking this effort off with a splash out in September to PhantomLake, BC.  Phantom is approx. 15nm NW of Squamish.  Phantom Lake (3100’ msl and 10,000 feet long) is a popular destination for floatplanes.  There is a convenient sandy beach with nearby primitive camping.  BCFA seasonally positions a canoe at the camp site.  Nearby float accessible lakes include East Falk Lake and Kato Lake.  These latter lakes, being higher and shorter, are a bit more challenging and suitable for higher performance aircraft.

    The general plan for the weekend is as follows:

    Saturday, September 8

    • Late morning/early afternoon arrival at Phantom Lake
    • Camp Set Up
    • 1800 dinner (BYOF&B)
    • Evening presentation/discussion by BCFA’s Mike Thompson on alpine lake flying

    Sunday, September 9

    • After breakfast optional exploration of nearby lakes for those interested
    • Afternoon break camp and depart
