A fellow member at the Shearwater Yacht Club (SYC), Ted, is a little older than me. He has spent a lifetime flying and currently owns a company with his wife Debbie, called Sable Aviation. They have a single commercial aircraft which they use to ferry supplies to the researchers and other government employees who live and work on Sable Island.

In addition, Ted has access to a Cessna 150 which is a two-seater single engine high wing plane. Ted puts me in the left seat which is normally the domain of the main pilot and lets me do all the flying. I got a Private Pilots License over 40 years ago and let this hobby go when we started having children and got pretty busy. It is an expensive hobby.
