Canmore Overflight

Only seen snipits of the flooding on the news but hope the folks affected find dry ground and the weather improves. By the sounds of it somebody may have to soon come up with a ARA class B rig landing approach for the Alpine base if the water rises further .


Best to all involved.

Hey pilot5,


All has improved dramatically around here and the flying during the flood was welcome as the majority of it was for the best for everyone and the ceiling wouldn't allow for much more. The problems arose once the skies parted and certain parties found it necessary to have a look at and show the damage to others. The volume of low level flights once the flooding stopped, irritated some of the people who were dealing with the realities of possibly loosing their homes along with their friends and neighbors. At that point they were dealing with strangers trespassing through their yards, increased traffic through their streets and then the air traffic on top of it all. Understandably, some of them reached their breaking point under the circumstances.


Coincidentally, since my original post the low level overflights have stopped. The affected residents are thankful to those who have chosen to give them the respect they deserve. I don't take any responsibility for having those activities change. If in fact my post made someone think twice or potentially learn something from the situation all the better.


Thanks to all that helped during the flood and thanks to all who have been flying around the community respectfully since then.
