Erissa Yong-Wilson is based atÂ CYPK, Pitt Meadows Regional Airport,Â Pitt Meadows, BC.
I fly a Cessna 182Q. I spent time with Jeannie MacPherson in Helena learning to fly in her Super Decath.Â Jeanne McPherson & I go back 10 years, with Sparky Imeson as our common friend. He first taught me to fly in his 170B and then we bought a C180 together in 2004. We flew 150 hours into all sorts of canyons and grass strips in Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico.
Recently I soloed in my friendÂ Gary Ward’s 1946 Cessna 140 in Georgia.Â Check out his website:Â www.garywardaerobatics.com
Water skiing on a calm lake, and landing on Grass strips.
Pictured is the grass strip he soloed me on 🙂 Â Wheel landings and takeoffs.
I am also a very good friend of Galen Hanselman who wrote the AIRBAJA series of books. I helped him a couple of years ago to survey 80 odd grass strips in Idaho for his new book and charts.
