Grassroots Tour with the Rockcliffe compadres

Grassroots Tour with the Rockcliffe compadres

Aviation groups get mingled with their members being in different associations, and it is all the better reason to join more than one! Without really intending to, I’m now a member of four different pilots associations, and it’s all great fun to meet a variety of aviators! This being said, without being a Rockcliffe member, I know a few of them and therefore Nicole, a fellow female pilot, invited me to join them for the classic Rockcliffe Grassroots Tour that…

Be the change that you wish to see in the world

Be the change that you wish to see in the world

Not too long ago, it was the 2016 Woman in Aviation week (#WOAW16), a world-wide event where woman are invited to come forth and share their experience in aviation or experience flight in a light airplane for the first time, and more. Different events are taking place throughout the week. On March 12 I volunteered as a pilot, for the first time, to take girls up in the air to live their first experience of the joy of flying. Something…

Finding time to learn to fly as a mother

Finding time to learn to fly as a mother

I don’t remember exactly how I came across the Mommy Pilots group on Facebook, but I sure enjoy it. When I read an email asking for Mommy Pilot bloggers, I thought it would be another great way to get involved in the aviation community. Especially since I enjoy the discussions online. I’m a newly licensed private pilot and it is slowly sinking in that I’m a pilot as well as a mom, like those in the Mommy Pilots group. But…

Fly-in breakfast: ma première expérience!

Fly-in breakfast: ma première expérience!

Une expérience que j’ai pu vivre récemment a été de me rendre à un Fly-in breakfast. Un Fly-in breakfast (je n’ai pas réussi à penser ni trouver une traduction adéquate) est un évènement où les pilotes sont invités à venir prendre le déjeuner. Ces évènements sont organisés dans différents aéroports, par les locataires des lieux, voir les gestionnaires eux-mêmes. Les Fly-in breakfast permettent entre autre de faire connaître l’aéroport mais aussi aux amateurs d’aviation d’admirer différents types d’avions de plus…

La liberté des vols en avion léger en péril?

La liberté des vols en avion léger en péril?

Mercredi dernier, j’ai eu la chance de faire un vol voyage vers Maxville, Ontario. Je me sens privilégiée de pouvoir vivre ces expériences de vols en avion léger. J’ai été invité à accompagner un pilote d’expérience. Ces expériences de vol définissent, selon moi, la vraie liberté et le plaisir de voler en avion léger. Pour ceux qui se le demande, je n’ai toujours pas obtenu ma license de pilote privé. Je reviendrai sur ce sujet pour une mise à jour….

Rockcliffe Air Rally 2013 : flying & playing mixed together

Rockcliffe Air Rally 2013 : flying & playing mixed together

Last September marked my first participation in the Rockcliffe Air Rally. Organised by the Rockcliffe Flying Club which I became a member in march of this same year. This rally was intended for the members of the flying Club as well as their friends and family. On the ground, you had to figure out some clues to be used to draw out the route to fly in the Ottawa region. Fortunately, so you don’t get lost nor cause any mid-air…
