THE DASH 7 STOL EXPERIENCE – Air Tindi Full Flight Vancouver to AbbotsfordOn August 10th, an aviation enthusiast charter flight was organized on board an Air Tindi de Havilland Canada Dash 7, a short hop from Vancouver International Airport to Abbotsford, during the Abbotsford Airshow.
For many, this was the only way to fly a Dash 7 within Canada as Air Tindi uses them on charter flights up north mostly, and it was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up!
About 30 of us signed up for this once-in-a-lifetime avgeek experience, flying from Vancouver to Abbotsford early that morning, staying the day in Abbotsford for the show, before flying back to Vancouver in the evening.
While I sat on the other side in seat 4A on this leg, I left a GoPro rolling to capture the wonderful wing view from the first row on the right side of the aircraft.
There were some beautiful sights as we flew over downtown Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. And of course, a thrilling high performance takeoff and a super short landing roll to top it all off.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the Dash 7 experience!
