Nestled in the heart of downtown Vancouver is the Vancouver Harbour Flight Centre. A hidden gem of aviation in the Canada. Home to Harbour Air, Seaair, Tofino Air, and SaltSpring Air, which all serve the coastal communities of the pacific northwest. I spent a few hours watching countless take offs and landings of the seaplanes from the shores of downtown Vancouver at the Flight Center and across the bay from Stanley Park. From a combination of local area flights by residents who use seaplanes to commute to and from home, to tourists who want to take in the local sights, the VHFC is a great place to see general aviation in action.
