  1. " Carry a small container of good quality candy such as Jolly Ranchers or Werthers Originals (they won't melt on the Astar tray)." But be careful.........kinda funny now but, I remember a ferry flight from Victoria to Rupert one time,...Somewhere around Bella Bella I almost choked to death on a Jolly Rancher.... believe it or not, Its surprisingly hard to fly in that state..... I chew gum now instead, and avoid hard candies.

I remember years ago, (1987 to be exact) when I was getting my licence in Langley....A fellow there flew around in his Bell 47 with a prosthetic hand, I believe he was a private pilot tho, think he was a plumber or something, and if I recall, he was missing his left hand, and used his left hand(prosthetic) for the cyclic and right hand to control the throttle/collective...which was the center collective normally for duals..... was I on crack or does anyone else remember that guy? flying plumbers kinda rings a bell..............it was a a red and white Bell 47.
