A Piper crashed out of Penticton yesterday on a route that we take each time we fly to the Coast. We know the Brenda Mine site well. It sits at about 5,000 ft elevation, just east of the summit of the Connector. It's a stunning distraction in a boring landscape that I usually knit through.

It will be months before this accident investigation is made public, but when it is, every private pilot in Canada will receive the results. Education is a huge key to pilot safety. We learn from mistakes, and thankfully, in this case, so may three of the four people in that Piper. Our prayers are with them, and the pilot's family.
