An update on the newly announced Fly-In from Vancouver Coast & Mountains
A 2011 Fly-In has been organized by Vancouver Coast &Mountains Tourism Region with support from the Village of Pemberton to attract pilots from the United States and British Columbia within a days flying time of a number of BC Airports – The first stop will be Kamloops where pilots will clear Canada Customs. Other airports in the pre-planned journey include Lillooet, Pemberton and Pitt Meadows.
"Fly me to the Moon!"
When Frank Sinatra sang that legendary song, Fly me to the Moon, he would certainly have included Super, Natural British Columbia in his thoughts of travelling there. Where would he have explored along the way? Without doubt, stops in Kamloops, Lillooet, Pemberton and Pitt Meadows would have been high on his agenda.

Upon arrival all participants will be greeted with BC’s Friendliest Welcome at the Kamloops Airport. A great way to start your journey!
