I have been waiting anxiously to get to Vancouver and see my good friend Siamak. He was waiting for us at the airport.   



We left Anchorage early in the morning. After the start up, I noticed my attitude indicator is not working. We shut down the engine to check the system. It looks like the indicator has taken it last breath. Considering my backup electric attitude indicator, we started the engine and departed without waiting another day or two to get a new instrument.

On our flight to Vancouver , We encounter extreme had wind of 40- 90 knots. Fortunately we had plenty of fuel, and after 550 miles, the wind change to a about 10 knots of tail wind.



Siamak and few other Iranian were waiting to greet us. Another guy, who’s name was also Siamak, worked at a avionic shop at the air port and offered to remove our faulty attitude indicator and install a new one before our next day departure. I am very grateful for his prompt effort for the instillation.


We had a great time at Siamak’s house with good food, drink and a good night sleep.  We also had a 30 mints interview with a Vancouver satellite TV station.
